no seth, I am not kidding.

try _USING_ the freaking things. bugzilla is cumbersome (and this is well 
and widely known). it is also pretty freaking ugly.



when you have a lot of bugs upen and juggling a lot of bugs simultaneously
(not uncommon for a development session), mantis is a lot easier and more 
convenient to use than bugzilla.

please, please. anything _EXCEPT_ bugzilla. the "zilla" part of the name 
does very aptly fit.

no, mantis is not perfect. neither is trac. but they both suck less than 

fwiw, svn is nicer than cvs too. svn warts and all.
