Here a list of bugtrackers:

- bugzilla 3.2 now supports everything Michael wanted from a bugtracker.
- redmine looks like an improved trac and it's in ruby (thus requires a
bit of care to scale properly)
- trac itself got better (yet with large margins to improve)
- mantis looks annoying as usual

Given the experience with roundup I'd move to bugzilla 3.2 once it is
released. At least there is more documentation and a wider userbase...
