I do almost everything inside Emacs.  Once I've got bug report in
Emacs, as part of reading email, I use the Emacs facilities to work on
it: the code inspection features like M-. and "M-x grep", Lisp
evaluation, Help commands, etc.  I do use the debbugs package, albeit
rarely, mainly when I need to work on large numbers of bugs.

For search, I use the Debbugs Web form (but I rarely need that,
either); I also have email search set up, but that's also rarely

For code review, it is important for me to be able to do the following
basic tasks efficiently while reviewing the patch:

  . find code in Emacs
  . copy code from Emacs's sources to the review text
  . spell-check what I write and fix typos
  . run Git commands, including forensics and patch application
  . read past discussions of the same or related issues

Does this answer your question?
