One point in favor of the use of a tracker like that of Gforge or 
GNA, is that it assigns a unique number to every bug / wish, 
which could then be easily referenced in Changelogs, CVS/SVN 
commits, etc.

It is easier to track bugs and have an history (when that bug has 
been reported? when has it been fixed? etc. which is not always 
clear from a ML).

I see it as complementary to the ML.
