This is my proposal, except also:

1. post all new bugs and comments to a public-inbox feed that people can query
   via and tooling like lei.

In fact, he probably did this by replying to emails, not via the web

We've recognized this a while ago, which is why our efforts have been targeted
at query-based message feeds. Hence, tools like and lei. It's

workflows today" kind of coordination, and avoids introducing single points of
failure by making it easy to replicate everything to mirrored systems.
