I agree on this one. This has been a problem for a long time. And I
think we have had several discussions about this, so far no solution

Problem with savannah is that it really doesn't handle different
releases nicely. And it does not handle patches nicely at all. Bugzilla
is much better on this approach. Though it is huge software to maintain
and needs a server. If we can find maintainer and the server with
necessary bandwidth (which should be small-to-moderate).

Oh... did I mention that bugzilla can be nicely combined with Mylyn :) ?
