I don’t think you’re a user of the Guix bug tracker, so I don’t think
you can claim it’s not enough.

I'm fairly sure the question was asked in the context of potentially using it for Emacs development. And I am an Emacs developer.

We have observed that the bug tracker
gets a lot more attention (noticeably more interactions from people who
don’t use M-x debbugs-gnu than before), in spite of the fact that
Debbugs*already*  has a web interface that many considered unattractive.

I'm sure it's an improvement.

“lacking features” is hard to quantify.  For some the only feature they
are interested in is to be able to stay within their Github browser
session.  Obviously we can’t offer that, no matter how hard we try.

Sure. But if you look back in the mailing list archives, there have been several discussions about using GitLab, for example. For its features. Being able to stay within one's Github browser session is not one of them.
