We use the Savannah bugtracker for MLDonkey. Its quite acceptable,
IMHO. Sure, there are better trackers(like "Trac") but why overdo it?

(One problem is that I cant seem to login to Savannah with emacs-w3m
anymore. I reported this somewhere, but dont quite remember the status
of it.)

Punching in a dozen of bugs from a file is doable and I could do it.
