Please, no bugzilla. It's top-heavy and really cumbersome to use.

Mantis has a much better interface, and is much more straightforward to 
configure and use. Please save the database elitism for the 
linux-vs-freebsd and atari-vs-commodore flame lists where those 
discussions belong.

I've used and setup a _lot_ of different bugtrackers extensively and 
mantis sucks the least. And I have used some which _really_ suck.
