All interaction with the Debian BTS (except for viewing bugs) is done over email. That's what I like about it. It will automatically insert an appropriate piece in the subject line (Bug#1393:) and anyone can mail the control bot to manipulate a bug. It also has the concept of usertags, so you can create your own set of tags with user email@example.com (or your personal address, if you desire), and then sort and display bugs appropriately. Junio seemed lukewarm on the idea of using a bug tracker; however, I think debbugs (either the Debian BTS or a separate instance) is probably the best-suited to an email-based workflow of all the systems I've used. Of course, it's up to the regulars (and probably ultimately Junio) whether this is something that Git as a project would benefit from. -- brian m. carlson / brian with sandals: Houston, Texas, US +1 832 623 2791 | http://www.crustytoothpaste.net/~bmc | My opinion only OpenPGP: RSA v4 4096b: 88AC E9B2 9196 305B A994 7552 F1BA 225C 0223 B187
