I'm not asking for myself. The question was why a lot of users shy away from reporting bugs to us.

You could argue that the web-based issue trackers are more fancy. But
this is the problem: they are web-based.

It's not that they are more fancy (though they are), they are more familiar to a lot of people. So they lower the barrier for participation, in a lot of ways.

tackle my problems with Emacs. So whatever we end up, that is a
requirement I have. I don't say we shall use debbugs forever, but if we
move to another system, I don't want to loose this feature.

I'm pretty sure we have discussed this requirement at length.
