No, of course. We will go with taking care of the facts. No decision was
taken for now and I won't expect it to come during summer because of

On one hand, this issue tracker was always declared as Sebastian's
public issue tracker. OTOH, it's not as if Sebastian had never be a core
developer and maintainer.

My point is that having both core team and issue tracker at the same
place help for tracking issues, email notification, task assigment, etc.

It needs to be discussed but you could expect a migration plan for
existing issues.
