I already wrote about the topic on the testing list, stating my ambivalent
about the topic. After some pondering, though, I must say I don't see *ANY*
point in having an email address in the bugtracker field. Whatsoever. If we
say email is good enough, we already have a maintainer field which is an
email address, the bugtracker is IN ADDITION to this. So as far as I'm
concerned, emails in bugtracker fields should die. Thus for me the question
whether we should require a proper web-based bugtracker or not. If not, that
field should be optional. If yes, then everybody should have it.
