Even if these are valid observations, they also point deficiencies in
our BTS. I fail to see why state changes are not timestamped. I take
your comment regarding the bug submitter to mean that he's not
automatically Cc'ed when something happens with the bug (e.g., new
information is added).
Bugzilla is a prime example of a feature-rich yet easy to use BTS.
Bugzilla doesn't support all the functionality we need, but I suspect
it should be enough for the WNPP and sponsor systems. I'd rather keep
using the BTS for this, though. People already know how to interact
with the BTS, the interface is simple and offline-friendly.
Adam wanted to reimplement some stuff in the BTS. What happend with
