This is really cool thought Niels!
This indeed helps in saving all the duplication of github onto trello,
also it actually encourage to do every little thing upstream.
Even as a contributor I see there are real benefits in getting the
real time features/elements on going under a project.

It will be really cool if there is a plugin, which is capable of
declaring every open issue (or issue filtered under some label) are
automatically captured under TODO lane of respective projects. I doubt
if there is one such.

sure for gluster-block, will try to create one at [1]

I'm interested and opting for maintaining gluster-block related items
under this planning area.
