No, if nobody objects, let's regard the move as a fact :-)

Yes. It's just more convenient for everybody I think. And it frees me
from the burden of maintaining various bits and pieces around the
source code. I'd rather spend my scarce moments with the code than
with web stuff and infrastructure.

Exactly. One less thing to worry about.

mod_asn is migrated as well now!

The issues are still the same. I need to go through all of them. 

Now that mod_asn has its own issue tracker, we could use it in the
future, of course.

(I'm btw not opposed to integrate the mod_asn code into mirrobrain (one
repository less, easier builds, ...). It's usable in its own right,
sure, and that could be maintained, but the separation feels a bit
artificial as well. Opionions welcome.)
