Do I get it right that you are proposing to set up another bug tracking system
instead of Bugzilla? You are joking, arent you?

You are objecting that there were not enough discussions about which
bugtracksystem to use. I was voting for bugzilla. I do not know how many people
on KDE lists had a deeper look into the whole bunch of bug track systems out
there to be even able to discuss the pros and cons, aside of that bugtracking is
not the main point of interest of the people here.

I know that bugzilla is very feature rich, reliable and widely used. I have
never heard of the debbugs system, and before starting to switch to it, I would
have some questions about it. But I think it is better to stop the discussion
now and better concentrate on other, more important things.
