Hi folks,

I found some interesting issue-/bug tracking system last week. Even its
written in Python the idea is cool. Bugs Everywhere
( uses the underlying scm (aka git, hg, bzr)
to store its data on.

It has also a mail-frontend like the debian BTS (didnt tried it, just
read it).

Maybee its such a solution you want to have for suckless bugtracking.
If it jet sucks less is another question.
