There's always Launchpad; it's not perfect but if it works for ubuntu
it must be at least OK :-)  Also, someone else runs the server, which
probably isn't to be discounted, and can probably be relied on to
improve over time -- there's a lot of development happening on it.  It
does all the usual things reasonably well, with sensible statuses and
tagging and assignment and so on. Possibly a disadvantage is that
because it has a focus on collaboration between projects, it's not
tweakable to meet any particular project's needs.

It should be possible to import the bugs from roundup into lp,
although roundup's 'build your own schema' thing probably means some
hand-holding will be required.
