Please use the devs ML for discussing this kind of meta issues.

IMO the mailing list is a better place to discuss this.

Also there was some earlier post where Sapient complained bitterly about gna rejecting his hotmail account as spam or something, and getting no reaction after repeatedly reporting it as a bug to their system.

It looks like we intended to do this but got distracted or didn't answer all of the questions we had before executing?


I'm sure redmine has many merits, but I'm just as motivated by the drawbacks of the current bugtracker:

1.) Generates untrusted certificate warnings when you follow bugs.wesnoth.org link, which surely deters users from reporting.

2.) Requires user to answer an inane trivia question about git as a CAPTCHA question.

3.) Savane formatting is wonky and difficult to use correctly, also you can't edit your post after it's been made to fix the formatting mistakes.
