Hi Bruce,

Please stop requiring us to use the sourceforge issue tracker.

1. It requires answers to irrelevant and annoying questions to create an
account (which is required to report or comment on bugs).

2. It doesn't properly handle whitespace-aligned text, making the bug
history very annoying to read. And the font it chooses doesn't
distinguish between l, I, and 1.

3. the email it sends me shows my text with ^M (yes, two bytes, caret M,
in a text/plain, charset=UTF-8, quoted-printable message body) at the
lineendings. I don't even want to speculate how they managed to fuck
that up.

4. the email it sends contains the entire bug:

[1000 lines of Description text]
[newest comment]
[previous comment]
[oldest comment]

So you have to navigate to the middle of the email to find the new text.

5. It does not support comment-via-email.

Not related to the issue tracker per se, but also annoying:

6. Your engineers want me to triage using some out-of-tree driver with
some vendor-specific custom install process. I am happy to test git
trees or apply patches, but I don't have time or inclination to deal
with vendor build+install scripts.
