I'd be very in favour of exploring other forms of bug-tracking. For  
we'll have a full replication of BugZilla in Jira (/me hides) in the  
near future
here on ASF hardware (see for a preview).

I've to admit that I really like it and especially as a patch-tracking  
it could be useful, at least IMHO.

Btw, Scarab ( is also available  
but I
doubt that it is used by a single project ;-)
