    All right.  I'll need administrator permissions on our Savannah site.  
    Can you set those?

Hold your horses!  I'm now willing to consider use of a bug tracker,
but that leaves the question of WHICH ONE, and checking that it is
actually ok to use.

Miles says that one was no good, when he tried it.  On the other hand,
Eli says now it works ok for GNU Make:

    I don't know about ``awful'' (you didn't say what was awful about it),
    but at least as far as email gateway, the GNU Make project has it set
    up and running: every bug report gets gatewayed into a mailing list,
    and so does any comment filed with a bug report.

Can you issue commands by email too?
