Hi, folks-

Good catch, Lea.

I think we might be able to have the best of both worlds. If we can 
configure our instance of Bug Genie to accept bugs from Github via the 
API, we can let people file bugs in Github and deal with them in 
projects.webplatform.org, and maybe even write them back to Github's 
issue tracker so the original poster can see the response (or failing 
that, point the poster to our issue tracker). It seems that Bug Genie 
has at least rudimentary support for this already [1], though it's not 
clear how extensive or reliable it is.

I've raised an issue for this [2]. Is someone interested in driving this 
forward?
