There may be reasons to switch to a different bug tracker, but not
parallels. For example, one report in the tracker asked for a bug
tracker that accepts the same passwords as PyPI. OTOH, other parallels
may not apply: e.g. it doesn't need to be written in Python.

So: if anybody would volunteer to setup a bug tracker for PyPI that
accepts the same passwords as PyPI (and probably should also support
OpenID, preferably with the same IDs associated with users as in PyPI),
please step forward. Moving to the new bug tracker would preferably
also move all open reports (closed reports optional).
