Re: Bug tracking

I'm not a fan of Tracker, but I'd be happy with either Bugzilla or GitHub.

GitHub has nice integration with the patches we land (e.g. we can close
issues via commit messages). So long as we're using GitHub to host the
source, we're likely to get issues via GitHub regardless of our decision

Bugzilla's advantage is simply that it has nice integration with specs we
depend on (like Fetch). And Anne apparently has a script we can use to make
filing bugs simpler (though I suspect it would be easily adjustable to
point to GitHub or wherever).

*shrug* Poll the group? Flip a coin?
