When the simple reduced tracker is, as already said, too simple. It is in
fact the very "Only if it was really, really awful. But then they would have
changed it a long time ago." you already mentioned: yes, it's simple for
you the end user, but it doesn't do what the people who actually do the
work need it to do (and this is true across many projects, some of which
have had to build their own additional tooling to interface with Github and
try to add all the functionality it doesn't provide).
