Organizing the issues - GitHub Projects?

The list of issues on our GitHub is getting quite overwhelming [1].
A few weeks ago I proposed that we make some groupings using GitHub's Milestones and set up a few [2] but this doesn't appear to have helped much.
Effectively the Milestones are just a kind of glorified tag (label).
And we definitely have too many tags (labels) [3].

So, here's another suggestion: create a GitHub Project for each deliverable [4].
GitHub "Projects" provides a rudimentary Kanban board for each project, allowing issues to be sorted in status ("todo", "in progress", "done") [5].
It seems to correspond pretty well with deliverables, and at least will allow us to look at the issues associated with the separate deliverables more cleanly.

Any comments?
