Well, here is the key point: all "temporary" solutions (e.g. temporary
return to bugzilla or use the current archive) rely on the assumption
that the issues we're facing will be fixed one day. However, here we
are depending on GitHub that might have their own priorities / plans
and we do not have any ways to influence their decisions besides
sharing some concerns and asking questions. So, I'd personally not go
this way until we will know for how long this interim solution will be
in use. Otherwise it could be in such a state forever, e.g. if GitHub
decides that they will keep the status quo.

As for "permanent abandoning" – I think in such a situation we'd need
to take one step back and seriously reconsider all the infrastructure
we're having. Maybe even checking what are the alternatives
