https://github.com/mpi-forum/mpi-issues/wiki/Issue-Workflow does not yet
exist, and it's not because of a typo.  I guess the content is there under
some other name, but as written, the guidelines below are not 100% accurate.

> Hello Forum,
> The time has come to start moving things from Trac and Subversion to our
> new home on GitHub!
> If you missed the discussions at the last few MPI Forum meetings, we
> agreed that now was a good time to move to a new tool chain to modernize
> our revision control system to get the benefits offered by Git. As such,
> we're moving to GitHub to make working with the source code easier for
> working groups and individuals.  For more history about why we decided to
> do this, take a look at the slides from the Bordeaux meeting (
> http://meetings.mpi-forum.org/secretary/2015/09/slides/MPI%20Forum%20SVN-Git.pptx
> ).
> You can find our new home here: https://github.com/mpi-forum.
> Working groups also have their own homes (this is new!).
> To find links to the working group’s pages, look at the main wiki page:
> https://github.com/mpi-forum/mpi-issues/wiki. Especially note the rules
> for accessing the MPI Standard source code that you are implicitly agreeing
> to at the top of the wiki page.  These are not restrictive and shouldn’t
> require anyone’s legal department to sign off on. There are lots of other
> guides in there that we’ve been putting together which should hopefully
> help both the Git wizard and novice.
> The timeline for this move is as follows:
> October 7, 2015:
> *   SVN was made read-only.
> *   The history of MPI 3.0 and 3.1 was moved into the new Git repository
> on GitHub. Older versions have less history preserved as it was lost in
> previous moves.
> Now:
> *   Individuals should send your GitHub user IDs to Wesley and Jeff to be
> added to the main MPI Forum organization.
> *   Individuals should *also* should send your user IDs to your working
> group chairs to get added to your working group’s organization.
> *   Working Group chairs will be given control over their respective
> working group organizations, and should determine how they would like to
> use them
>     *** Guidelines:
> https://github.com/mpi-forum/mpi-issues/wiki/Working-Group-Guidelines
> *   Working Group chairs/members should start migrating any wiki pages
> that they would like to migrate to their respective working group’s
> repository.
>     *** Guidelines:
> https://github.com/mpi-forum/mpi-issues/wiki/Migrating-Working-Group-wiki-pages
> *   Trac ticket authors should start migrating tickets over to issues on
> the mpi-forum/mpi-issues repository (
> https://github.com/mpi-forum/mpi-issues).
>     *** Guidelines:
> https://github.com/mpi-forum/mpi-issues/wiki/Migrating-old-Trac-tickets-to-Github-issues
> *   Ticket authors should start writing text for their tickets and create
> pull requests with the proposed text to be reviewed by the MPI Forum.
>     *** Guidelines:
> https://github.com/mpi-forum/mpi-issues/wiki/Issue-Workflow
> November 13, 2015:
> *   Trac will be made read-only.
>    *   Working groups can no longer edit wiki pages.
>    *   Individuals can no longer edit or make comments on tickets.
>    *   Existing pages can still be viewed
> December 7, 2015:
> *   First physical MPI Forum meeting using the new GitHub issues and pull
> request system.
>    *   Agenda items will only be accepted if they have a corresponding
> GitHub issue & pull request. Trac tickets are no longer allowed.
> If you have questions, feel free to contact Wesley or Jeff for more
> information.  We know that this will be a little bit of work in the short
> term, but hopefully we can make this process as painless as possible and
> have a better set of tools in the future.
> To help with the transition, we’ll have a Webex on Monday, November 2nd at
> 11:00 AM Eastern US to give an overview on how things will work and the
> process for creating a ticket. For anyone who can’t join, we’ll record that
> Webex and post it to be viewed later.
