I really don't understand that we manage to get by without using a bug
tracking system.  We seem to manage, but I'm sure there are many
issues which are never fully addressed and resolved.

I use my personal mail archives and TODO list to keep an eye on issue
that I MIGHT want to look into; actually, I have several mails more
than a year old that I really don't know (without using time I don't
have to find out) if the issue is still unresolved.

A major advantage of bug tracking is also to know WHO (if any) is 
responsible for fixing a given bug.

I have very positive experience with bugzilla from other projects, but
there may be other choices...
