Bugzilla and the savannah bug tracker stuff both seem to suffer from the
almost fatal flaw that they are almost entirely web-based.  Filing a simple
bug report or managing bugs with either is a painful process, because you are
largely stuck with the slow manual process of filling in a web form.

I'd much prefer something based around email, only using the web where it
makes sense.

Andrew Suffield's `BugGoo' system, which Tom Lord has started using for tla
(replacing savannah's bug tracker), looks interesting.  Andrew is a Debian
developer so I presume it is partially based on experience with Debian's
bug-tracking system (which is generally excellent, at least from a user's
point of view).  http://bugs.gnuarch.org/
