Wow, great to see this.
I think it’s a real shame that usually issues are separate from the source code – the search UIs are paginated/bloated, don’t work offline and most annoyingly, the cognitive burden of switching to github (or whatever hosting you’re using) and searching through is too high. When you can just use incremental search within your IDE without having to switch to the browser, it’s much saner.
I used org-sync for far, but git bug looks way more mature… Perhaps I’ll try to implement a text dump for git-bug too.
The trick is to have issue tracking in a repo and yet block non permitted accesses.
Much easier in public settings to have issues outside the repo
