Is there any reason for not using the existing W3C bug tracker,
previously suggested [1]? Apart from being used to track
specifications ("SVG" product [2], for example), it is already being
used by software products as well ("CSSValidator" product [2], for
example). Reusing an existent framework would be, IMHO, better for:
maintenance reasons (someone already has the responsibility to
maintain the W3C bug tracker); familiarity (the bug tracker is already
used for other W3C activities so it should be familiar to most users;
also, it is bugzilla-based, one of the most widely deployed bug
trackers); probably some more reasons I could try to gather, if
needed.

Sorry if this sounds as noise: I'm trying to suggest a quick and
hassle-free setup which may also (potentially) help avoiding
additional work in the future (while comparing to a project-specific
bug tracker). :-)

Hope this helps,
