Can I get a show of hands? How many package maintainers would like to
have a bug tracker?
One problem that I see immediately is that if we publicly adopt a bug
tracker EVERY maintainer will have to use it. We can't expect a normal
user to understand that they send email to the mailing list for binutils
but use the bug tracker for screen.
Another thing that I think is important is that we would have to adopt a
standard for how we treat bugs. I'm not really keen on using the bug
tracker as a knowledge base for end-user ssh problems. I don't think
that's what a bug tracker is for. That's what a FAQ is for.
And, in that line, how about per-package FAQs on the cygwin site?
