I think it'd be not so difficult to extend our mailware
(fts.postgresql.org) to handle bug-list. Actually,
mailware has much more features, it's already has search/read,
track features. Adding post is trivial. Developers (who actually
fix a bugs) usually read mailing lists and reply's to BUG, which
should be automatically go to corresponding bug-thread.
