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.
  5,15,25,35,45,55 * * * * gnats test -x /usr/lib/gnats/queue-pr && \
        /usr/lib/gnats/queue-pr --run ; exit 0

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.
