there is no need for a threded Bulletian board which is less efficient than
the mailing list.  Generally, the formalized bug programs are all but useless.
They add nothing to getting bugs fixed.  I have outstanding bug reports in 
Mozilla, GNOME, and a half dozen other projects which have been around for YEARS.

They all just add a level of complexity to things.

The use of tar balls and CPAN is more than adequate for EMBPERL.

Perhaps you can offer to lend a hand in make the bug fixes?  This would
probibly be the only useful suggestion I can propose.

Sourceforge truly is a PIA.  You can't understand anything on the page,
there are zilllions of useless binaries, every nut case adds their useless
input.  The easiest way of killing a project is to adandon it to sourceforge.

Frankly, your searching for a program to fix your legitimate problems.  But only
elbow greese can really get you to where you want to get to.

I have found Richter to be very responsive over the years (what is it 8 years now).
The only means to speed things up is to use diff and patch and lend some programming
