Sorry if it was not clear. I'm for the use of two different tracker (bugs /
patches). But I see John's point that it will create confusion.

At my first look on the new bug tracker at gna I also found it strange to 
find 'bugs' as well as 'patches' and interpreted it as said in my first

After nothing was posted in the section 'patches' I started to use 'bug'
for this. A clear text stating that should be reported into which tracker
on top of the corresponding pages would be helpful.
