On most linux distro bugzilla website, there are some people dedicated to 
triaging bugs (finding duplicated bugs, asking for more informations, closing 
old and / or resolved bugs).
To have an efficient bugtracking tool needs to have some people dedicated to 
But for the user, it's a better approach. For example, I do not need to 
register to the devel list and I do not have to watch all mails to locate the 
one which concerns my bug.
It works nicely with fedora, magieia and other distro / tools, so I don't know 
why this shouldn't work fine with git ?
But as far as I can read, most people here are very reluctant to use a 
bugtracking tool ...

Personally, I do not want Yet Another Bugzilla Account.  A project is
significantly less likely to get a patch from me if I have to create an
account to report a bug.  Most of the patches I send to various projects
are for bugs I've experienced and want to provide a fix for, so I send a
small number of patches to many projects.

I feel that the mailing list workflow ends up working very well for Git
and it provides a low barrier to entry for those that want to send just
one or two patches for problems that they're experiencing.  It also
allows me to see and comment on virtually every patch on the list, while
ignoring threads I am not interested in, a combination which is
difficult to achieve with a web-based bug tracker.
