I agree.  It's a pity so many bug reports are already lost in
bug-gnu-emacs archives without being registered and categorized
by their severity and status.

As I see it, the purpose of etc/TODO is to manage ideas rather
than open bugs.  Open bugs could be placed to a separate file.

So a set of database text files might contain only four files:


That's all that's needed for the simplest issue tracker.

Another question is how to add new bug reports to the BUGS file.
I think this is the task of Emacs developers to register bug
reports from bug-gnu-emacs in the BUGS file, because usually
Emacs users who report bugs on bug-gnu-emacs can't assign right
categories and severity levels to reported bugs.
