Because savannah.gnu.org added support to have a bug tracking system
per project, I think it might be easier to maintain the project, if we
shift some of the matainance work from this mailing list to
Savannah. I objected to the use of Savannah several months ago,
because it was too primitive, but it now looks excellent.

So I made a prototype of the Bug Tracking System. You can see it via
<http://savannah.gnu.org/bugs/?group_id=68>. If you are on the list of
developers, you can see the difference between non-admin user and
admin user by logging in. The reason why I call it "a prototype" is
that the BTS is quite customizable, so we can fit it to our needs more

If we migrate the main part of the maintenance work to Savannah, these
would happen:

1. Advise users to use the BTS rather than this list when they send
   bug reports.
2. Advise users to submit patches to the BTS rather than this list
   when they send patches.

I prefer the BTS to the Patch Manager, because the BTS can be used as
an alternative to the Patch Manager, and the BTS has much more features
than the Patch Manager.

BTW, I'm not thinking of using the Support Manager, because I don't
think it is superior to communications via e-mail.

Any comments?
