Well, someone at the PHP BOF today at Apachecon pointed out the
bug database used for the PHP project is actually fairly nice.
Its pretty bare-bones, but some people might consider that a feature.
Bugzilla is definitely on the clunky side.

I know Brian appears to have some plans with this in connection
with Tigris (, although this crappy net connection
won't actually let me view web stuff so I can check to see if
there's relevant content up there yet).

One epiphany I had today is that the really missing component is
a simple (but extensible) database schema for handling such a system
so people could implement their own front-ends on top of it (using
Java servlets or applications, PHP, Perl, email handlers, IRC bots,

I think having that core defined would allow more interesting
related projects than any single system tied to particular
implementation details like database engine or language.
