I have to say, I agree.  I was asked to make a ticket but I will not
because I cannot accept github's privacy policy.  So, I sit and wait in
silence for my tiny problem to be solved.  Since I am not a coder I cannot
contribute and therefore have to accept decisions like moving to github
(which I think was the right one btw) and the consolidation of tickets
there (which I don't think is the right decision - if I didn't have privacy
issues, I would use Google's cloud, and so far my need for owncloud does
not outweigh my need for privacy so accept it is what I have done).

I don't see why you can't have a separate bug tracker, or even a person who
consolidates issues in your chosen bug-tracker, but until you do I will be
waiting without a voice.
