I agree, I find the rise of this kind of pull requests rather annoying: they
frequently require to use a web browser, and even a fully javascript-enabled
web browser, with awful accessibility (keyboard access, font settings). I
already find handling tickets with Trac rather annoying for that reason, I
hope we can continue to work from the comfort of a good mail client.
