Yes, it's a lot more work for all parties, the server maintainer,
the package maintainer and the user. And I believe it will suffer
from the same problems as the almost unusable perl core tracker
- everybody uses the mailing list for serious bugs.

But at least it's an access point for other types of users, and
maybe we'll get patches also.
setup.exe got a lot of patches this way.

And did I say I really like the github, google and trac trackers (issue lists),
and hate RT and bugzilla.
