Yes. That whole, confusing install-sid issue.

Depends upon your own preference. Would you prefer to run gnats as a
daemon or as a local process? Would you like to use the mail interface
or only allow access through the daemon and/or gnatsweb? If the gnats
daemon is running through inetd, and if you are allowing connections
from your workstation to the server, pr-edit will be quicker to respond
than waiting for your cron job to process the incoming queue.
You have your cron job set up to process incoming emails, right?
# Cron job for processing GNATS incoming queue. 10 min delay.

You have two entries for "bugs". Your MTA should be complaining when
you run "newaliases".

Gotcha. It sounds like you're not really using it, though.
