Hi John,

Great. :-)  Whenever a bug is first reported in a mailing list and
later "moved" to a bug tracker (or the way around), it's generally
useful to provide a link which helps navigating from one to the other
(usually the "URL" field, in the bug report). In this case, it's bug
8434 [1]. ;-)

I guess the Amaya team should be the one choosing either the mailing
list or bug tracker as preference. Personally, I prefer the bug
tracker, with it's more precise life cycle [2], metadata and more
precise search abilities but, as it's hard for most users to
distinguish a bug report from a support request, the mailing list is
many times a good way of providing a first triaging of the problem
and, after it's agreed that it's not a misconfiguration or
misunderstanding, a bug is then isolated. But I'd say a bug tracker is
great for whoever is able to report bugs properly [3]... :-)

Yeah, I'd say a bug tracker is more fit to a developer's process.
Again, I guess the Amaya team should state which is their
