Dear Bill,

I'm very grateful to you, even though I'm unhappy that will
not have the same contents in future.  Oh dear, I link to it in a paper...

Oh dear, that's too bad.  In fact, I'm quite shocked.  

I wanted to make the following suggestion already some time ago: If the three
projects intend to cooperate, I think it would be a very wise thing to have
only one database for bugs.

I like IssueTracker a lot, mainly, because it is so easy to demonstrate the
bug.  Since we have several projects now, it would be necessary though to be
able to select any subset of

fixed in Axiom
fixed in FriCAS
fixes in OpenAxiom

Since FriCas and Axiom refers to the IssueTracker numbers in the logfiles and
in source, it is a must (if possible) to keep the database numbering as is.

Do you know already whether transferring is a fundamental problem?

Many thanks again and good luck,
