    IMO database functionality is needed. I should be easy to select items 
    having to do with a particular
        module/issuer/maintainer/priority/version of Emacs/OS

It is easy enough to search a file.  If this gets to be large,
something is wrong.  We're not planning to use this to track
individual bugs, and aside from individual bugs, the number of issues
cannot be too large.

What you're proposing would be too costly to set up and maintain.
Our sysadmins would have to do it.  I can't agree to that.

Also, I would be unable to access it.  I usually do not have a net
connection, and often don't even have the possibility of one.
Therefore, I want this info to be kept in a file in the Emacs
repository, so I will be able to look at it and edit it without
a net connection.

If you want to work on Emacs code to do more sophisticated searching
of this file, please go ahead.  That would be a modular improvement
which would not impose any problems elsewhere.
