Re: [] Use of GitHub Issues by Eclipse Projects

IBM has launched an effort a few years ago called OSLC which tries to address this issue of scattered information sources. Maybe this technology can be reused to provide some central ticket repo. Also Mylyn has a great track record when it comes to unyfing tasks from different sources.

I believe this is a good thing for the projects that want to be on GitHub, but I have similar concerns as Ed about multiplying the media.
Users will just get even more lost because of this. Currently we can say "open a bugzilla request and in worst case we'll re-route it to the right project"; now some projects will say "open a ticket on Bugzilla", others will say "open a GitHub issue". It really scatters the contribution process that is already so difficult to teach...

Mind the hype!
