Github is popular due to its social features and unilaterally providing
everything a free software project would need (wiki, issue tracker,
etc). The problem with github is that it is a centralized service as a
software substitute (SaaSS) and largely proprietary. 

There are distributed issue trackers like Simple Defects:
http://syncwith.us/sd/

There are also DVCS' with built in distributed issue-tracking, wiki, and
web-interface such as fossil: https://www.fossil-scm.org/

If darcs could work on implementing this, it would be poised to become a
free software and distributed alternative to github. The wiki itself
could easily be powered by darcs, and there should be a way for the
issue tracker to be as well.

So we have http://hub.darcs.net these days for a centralised version of this

I'd be curious to see if in practice how the Fossil community have
found the use of distributed bug tracking to be in practice.  When I
was playing with in-repo BTS (BugsEverywhere) I think I basically ran
into problems of obscurity (got to a point where it introduced a sort
of opacity - shoot, I forgot to use BE).  None of this detracts from
your core request though, so maybe the discussion should happen on
darcs-users instead.
