I'm +0.5 on moving away from anything on I find the collector
UI and speed suboptimal to work with. Launchpad provides a reasonable
good bug tracker from my experience (I mostly reported bugs against the
launchpad translation system itself in the past ;)).

Personally I find trac a lot more efficient to work with, though. But
it's UI is definitely geared towards developers (which is in the end the
prime target group for CMF).

I'll dare to speak out the unthinkable and as an alternative option
suggest to move the CMF bug tracker to a trac instance hosted on

A common user database between the Plone and CMF bug trackers is a
bigger benefit than the common user base between CMF and Zope I think.
But maybe our two communities still don't overlap enough for that idea
to work out ;)
