Hosting Bugzilla is actually very lightweight on time intensiveness from
an administrative perspective. It's now possible to give the ability to
manage individual product configurations to individuals that are not
administrators without giving away the keys to the rest of the
installation.  In the past three years, I can count on one hand the
number of times I had to fix things with Bugzilla, Apache, and MySQL
(Linux based).

In any case, I don't really care if it's Bugzilla, Sourceforge, Trac,
Jira, or something else.  My point is that right now, the current issue
tracking system could do a lot more to help foster contributions.
Rather than spending a lot of resources fixing RT, why not use something
that does a much better job meeting the needs out of the box?
