Just in case that helps: the trackers in Gforge (hint: Alioth) are
widely recognised to be simple (sometimes excessively so, even), and
they do provide the ability to send e-mails on submission and/or
updates on the "tickets".
Of course, Alioth suffers from a Gödelian problem if it is to be
used for tracking things to do on our infrastructure, since it belongs
to it. In other words: if (when) Alioth's down or unreachable, you
can't use it to track the ticket that says it's down or unreachable.
It would be hard to be deader without special training.
