Which is why I suggested Bugzilla. Warly has done quite a good job of
interfacing Bugzilla to mail, and we would already have a history of bugs
in there. Why not 'fork' the bugzilla db when a stable release is made?
Warly may have time to do that kind of thing directly after release?
Something would have to be done, similar to the current rules for
Bugzilla, to enforce good bug reports, that means that some people must
subscribe to the stable bug reports to vote for (or if they have rights
to) confirm bugs.
Also, bug submission guidelines should be drawn up (such as the
post-install data in /root/drakx for installation issues, use of drakbug?,
