I'm using the jython.org style sheets. I assumed the font sizes are 
intentional. If not, please provide patches (or change the style sheets

You need psycopg or psycopg2, yes. You don't need spambayes installed,
but you do need to check out the spambayes_integration.

Please do edit the Wiki to add any missing pieces.

I think the first step should then be the DNS setup. We need

bugs.jython.org.        86400   IN      MX      10 bugs.python.org
bugs.jython.org.        86400   IN      A

The reverse lookup will point to bugs.python.org; there isn't much
we can do about that. Perhaps it's better to make bugs.jython.org
a CNAME instead.

Then, I need to know
a) the submission address for new issues, and reply address for
    follow-ups (report at bugs.python.org for the python-dev tracker)
b) an email list where new bug reports are sent to (optional)
c) an email list where just any change in the tracker is sent to
d) an email list where weekly status reports are sent to (optional)
e) a recipient (list) for admin_email
