Yup.  And when gnats is setup the way I think it should be it will send
mail to a list for every new bug or status change.  Followups via email
can automatically be included in the record in the bug database, or
someone can bring up a point without including it in the by just replying
to the list but not having it included in the database. 

I've done a bit with gnats in the past, and it is a reasonable system even
though it is really broken, ugly, inefficient, hard to use and
non-intuitive.  That other system (forget the name, Roy mentioned it, have
played with it a bit) has a far better web interface since that is what it
is really built around, but I'm not sure how good the email side of things
