I like debbugs better than any other bug tracking system I've used.
Because it's in Emacs.  :-)  `/ tls' and there all the TLS-related bugs

But it does need more features to make it possible to type less when
applying patches.  A one-keystroke command to apply the patch, put the
bug number into the ChangeLog, and do a "make" in a buffer to see
whether any compilation warnings are generated, as well as a one-touch
"make the commit message and check this stuff in" command.

So, a one-key solution to apply and test a patch, and a one-key solution
to checking it in.

It's doable if somebody feels like doing it.

As for tracking appliable patches, debbugs already offers that with the
"patch" and "pending" tags.
