Right, the problem has been the lukewarm response from the hackers 
who would be using it every day, and without whose buy-in using a 
bug tracker would be possible, but much more difficult.

Bug tracking software is definitely religious war territory; most 
people have a bug tracker they use and tolerate, and pretty much 
everyone has a bug tracker that they absolutely despise (hi JIRA!). 
Therefore, I suggest we adopt the first one that someone takes the 
time to build and implement, along with a plan for keeping it up 
to date.

My own bare bones wish list for such a tracker is:

* Runs on Postgres
* Has an email interface

Make no mistake, whichever we choose, the care of feeding of such a 
beast will require some precious resources in time from at least two 
people, probably more. If there is anyone in the community that 
wants to help the project but hasn't found a way, this is your chance 
to step up! :)
