I absolutely agree with you! I think the issue tracking system at
SourceForge is very good even though it does not allow one to easily
illustrate a problem. It is standard and well known to open source

If you would prefer that users of OpenAxiom only submit reports to the
tracker at SourceForge, we can easily insert a warning message in the
issuetracker on the Axiom wiki providing a link and informing users
that they should instead submit a report at SourceForge.

I understand that. I do not see your position as 'non-cooperation' -
quite the opposite. I think you need to be free to develop the project
using the best tools available. There are a lot of different options.

I think some things are possible but as usual not so easy. For example
it is possible to configure ZWiki to accept mail sent to a specific
address on the server. The mail could for example originate from a
subscription to the tracker system at SourceForge. The mail could be
filtered and added to a specific web page on the Axiom wiki. Perhaps a
similar link could be implemented in the other direction since I think
it is possible to submit issues to SourceForge via email, right?
