I'd like to add a point to the question here.

Its not directly related to the "issues" link, but it is in relation to
a lost link (too) and how we re-structure some of the content for new
contributors.

* Where would we link/expose the IRC chat log? [0]

It was on the talk subdomain, but since we are removing it, and we will
probably re-think that part of the content, we should not forget that too.

Would it make sense to have the "ISSUES" link in the navigation header redirect here instead of going straight to the project issue tracker?  Or would that be frustrating for regular users who already know how to report bugs and just want to go straight to the bug list?
