True, but I think Rudi did have a valid point as well.

One can't get people to solve bugs by recording those bugs in
a different kind of database.  In general, one can't solve a social
problem by technical means.  However, having a bug tracker would solve
a _technical_ problem: it would provide an easy way to enumerate and
grep the list of all known, unresolved issues, and to access the latest
status of each.

Cheers,

Daniel
