Hi Jon and others,

I don't always read the mailing lists every day or week, so I am coming 
to this a bit late. :-)  I will add some thoughts here as the current 
maintainer of Poi.

I think the Poi trackers on plone.org work just fine.  I am not aware of 
big problems.  If you do have problems, please report them in this 
thread or in this fine issue tracker on plone.org. :-)

That said, the issue trackers on github work just fine too.  I use both.

I work for Zest Software and we use Poi on our projects site.  I know 
two other Dutch Plone companies that use it too.  So Poi is not going 
away or be unmaintained any time soon.

So: I see no immediate reason to deprecate the Poi trackers on 
plone.org.  But I don't mind much if that does happen.

I could probably write an exporter, or give feedback and assistance to 
someone else doing that.  I did not immediately notice an issue importer 
on github though.  Is there such a tool on github or on other popular 
platforms that offer issue trackers?
