Problem may be that this is bug tracker on sourceforge: sourceforge is not popular nowadays. Also have a look at how Bram did: they have an issue tracker on github which posts to vim-dev, with a mailing daemon which posts back in case of replies. So users that got used to GH have their issue tracker, and users got used to mailing list get issues too. Though, of course, this makes GH issue tracker secondary because issues posted to vim-dev do not appear there.
