We also mirror the latest status-bubble on top (in PR description) so that it is always easy to find consistently in same place. Due to different architecture, we wouldn't be porting the "position in queue" feature from Bugzilla status-bubbles to GitHub status-bubbles.

Why did you choose not to port "position in queue" this over to GitHub? I find this genuinely useful and I think it's a usability regression to lose it.
