   It is a reasonable feature to want, but primarily for the user, not
   for the developers.

I beg to differ, if you cannot comment, or even send a patch for a bug
reporet via email, then it sucks for developers.

   Your experience with GNATS seems to be different from mine.  But it
   is quite irrelevant.  Even if the savannah bug tracking system
   would be the worst out there I would ask you to cooperate in using
   it, or at least not to flat out refuse it just because you are
   mildly inconvenienced by it.

Sorry for feeling so stronly about it, but the bug tracker _is_
unusable to me.  When hacking I can have a buffer open and write the
bug report or whatever directly without going through some awkward
operation of cut and pasting between Emacs and Lynx.  I won't change
the way how I work for the sake of Savannah.

  If you exclude yourself from this resource we all lose.

Too bad.
