Well, with email integration (as I am envisioning -- I don't know what
BZ actually implements) it is even better, because you just create a
ticket, and that sends an email to the list. Other people can respond
to that email, which gets saved into the bug without need for further
In Debian's bug tracking system, when the bug is created (which is done
by sending an email to a certain address) it gets a number, and the
email is distributed to certain lists. People can then reply to that
mail, and send messages to [EMAIL PROTECTED] and it gets tracked in
the bug, and you can see all those messages in the bug report. I
ass-ume that BZ 3.0 does something similar.
