Which interface do you like better: the SourceForge bug tracker or
Jitterbug?  I am leaning towards moving the bug database from
Jitterbug at python.org to SF.

The advantages of moving to SF are:

- bugs, patches, and CVS all managed by the same service
- bugs can be assigned to specific people for resolution
- cleaner interface for searching bugs
- bugs can be assigned a priority

The primary disadvantage of SF is email support.  Jitterbug can
receive comments about a bug via email and add them to its database.
The SF bug tracker does not.  It works like the patch manager,
requiring you to use the Web interface to add more information.

The SF bug tracker will send an email message every time a bug entry
is updated, but that's it.

Please let me know what you think.
