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
git@vger.kernel.org (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.
