I have a web crawler for a website I maintain that I could modify to
crawl through the archives of -bugs, say from 5 Dec 2003 where the first
bug with the new format appears, and capture the structured data
(reference, logged by, email address, PG version, OS, description, and
message URL) into a table, for every message whose subject starts with
"BUG #", and capture each message URL for any message that has "BUG #"
somewhere in the subject, in a second table.

I presume the tables could be used even if it's decided to go with
something like RT or BZ, but before I spend a couple of hours on this
I'd like see some ayes or nays.  Useful or not?

Joe
