If Bugzilla is indeed as easy to maintain as you say, I could volunteer
to take responsibility for it.

The question of hosting remains. AFAIK, four alternatives have been
proposed over the years:


Let's go through them:

freeciv.org: Our own aging servers in Paul's basement. Are they up to

sourceforge.net: The question was if bugzilla could run on SF.net webspace?
icculus.org: IIRC, this was Per's contact. Status?
seul.org: IIRC, this was Egor's contact. Status?
