forcing registration for bug reporting is bad
but that rules out github (and i think all other
options mentioned so far)

i don't see an easy solution

the minimum requirements are:
	- search/browse the bug database (through web)
	- query a bug by unique id (through permanent url)
	- open a bug (by mail)
	- comment on a bug (by mail)
	- get notifications about a bug (by mail)
	- simple administration (change status, mark duplicates)

i think server side email applications are hard to do
because of mime parsing and other smtp difficulties
and they can have huge latency
