It's fine that a bug tracker *tracks* bugs. It should not control
them. That's not how this community currently works, and a lot of
people have said that's how they want it to stay (at least for now).

I agree with these too :-)
It's also missing what I believe is a very important requirement - it
needs to have an extensive, and fully supported, API. So that we can
easily make it work together with our other services.

No direct experience with the debian tracker, but I agree that being
able to do all those things from mail is very important. If it *also*
provides a way to do this from the web, that's even better.
