I think I agree with you in general, but if there's going to be a JIRA
instance soon we can use, setting up a different issue tracker seems
like a lot of wasted work. We'll just end up with a perpetually dead
tracker that will gather Google juice and distract contributors.

What I'd suggest is to create a Contribute page on the KB and include
a list of tasks as a section on that page. When JIRA is set up, we can
move all the tasks there, and link there from the Contribute page. No
dead trackers, no extra pages that can gather links only to 404.
