Fully ACK. The former can be easily used offline/firewalled/whatever, while the later is hard to do. I would always choose a bts that has a email interface against one that doesn't. And I guess I'm not the only one. But that doesn't mean that there can't be a different frontend additionally to the email frontend. >> ... so who's writing it? Nobody?

There is no "appropriate level of authority" required to send in patches, to start coding and stop complaining. There's just "move your ass" required. On the other hand... Gosh, things could be done! Feel free to put efforts in it, rather than putting efforts in complaining. That's the way things in volunteer projects work, you know? Think about it.
