Lost PediaPress tracker issues/bugs

I discovered today that the PediaPress tracker was closed a year ago and its content lost. The issues I knew are still valid; probably they all still are. For now I'll just add here a list of those I found; if you find some that look still valid to you, please copy them to bugzilla.

  1. Active Tickets
  2. #409 (Provide statistics about how many books/PDFs have been created/ordered)
  3. #839 (Save and load book from text files)
  4. #374 (If only some articles of a category are added to the collection, show a warning)
  5. #383 (Updating of title/subtitle not working 100% reliably (?))
  6. #446 (automatically insert title in <input>s for saved books)
  7. #596 (Report stats of missing images on rendered page)
  8. #629 (Protect all requests that modify the session against CSRF)
  9. #674 (Suggestions should use the wikitext w/ expanded templates)

  12. #725 (Don't show book creator box on saved book pages)
  13. #804 (Update book creator to handle new {{saved book}} parameters)
  14. #945 (Show PDF size upon rendering)

  16. #356 (Use the contents of Mediawiki:Article instead of "Article")
  17. #268 (PDFs should be uploaded to the wiki)
  18. #337 (Graceful fallback for non-js clients)
  19. #684 (Edit display title on Special:Book page)
  20. #355 (Subpages shouldn't be prepended with the name of the book)
  21. #408 (Allow cross-wiki article collection)

I noticed a little while ago that all of the links to the tracker were redirected to the PediaPress main website. Have you asked them about the bugtracker, or do you otherwise know why it's gone now?

I'll take a look at the bugs above.

Yes, I asked.

Have you managed to give a look there? Aubrey is also interested in making a list of current Wikisource books export problems.

Their reply, FWIW, was that they are a small company and don't have resources for keeping the old tracker around. Of course they have their own priorities, they have to survive. I think they may be using GitHub (too) now, but experience teaches that we must track the problems we care about in our own bugzilla.
