Is there a plugin to migrate a topic to GitHub as an issue? That could be really useful for technical forums that want to move specific development-related topics to a GitHub issue.
I’m not really sure how exactly it would work; maybe the GitHub issue would be created under the account of a bot or the user who initiated the move, and the original thread would be closed and the issue and the thread would link to each other.
Anyway, just thought I’d throw this out there as a “nice to have”!
Discussion on Github issues is a trash fire… I’m not sure why you’d want to encourage more of it. Cross-referencing Github issues to Discourse discussions is one thing, but actually migrating all the discussion into an issue? I can’t imagine how that would be better.
Direct integration with the code, labels, milestones, and releases is valuable. AFAIK Discourse doesn’t hook into specific lines of specific commits of code together with the rest of the GitHub issue tracking features.
