Those are some really good points.  In the "FOSS needs

communicating with each other.  Theoretically, this would
alleviate some, if not all, of the work load of someone having
to check two issue trackers, because if one can be consider
upstream to the other, then the data can flow with the work
only needing to be done in one place.

OK, either you are trolling or you are serious and you have some
brainpower to stand behind your words.

If the former, then read
http://slashdot.org/features/98/10/13/1423253.shtml very
carefully and then go and do something useful.

If the latter, then I have a couple of bugs for you to solve:

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=452962 -- that should
be easy, just make periodic XML-RPC requests and store it in the
database.
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=189813 -- OK, this is
biggie, and you will need to work closely with people around
http://www.bugzilla.org . On the other hand, I heard they work on
this, so any real help you can provide to them would be very
welcome.

And fixing either of these would actually help somebody (me
included; yes, I would love to click on the button "Move
upstream" in RH Bugzilla) to fix bugs better. Your suggestion
(aside from making a lot of work for somebody else, not talking
about huge costs in hardware and bandwidth -- and yes, they are
huge, just believe me) doesn't seem to help to anybody.

While I don't agree with your dichotomy, I have to be honest and say that, at the moment, I am no way ready to undertake a task like this myself right now.

Having said that, the fact that I am not able to do this myself does not automatically exclude me from making the suggestion and participating in the brainstorming that follows. I definitely *use* Fedora/Red Hat's Bugzilla, so I am speaking from my own experiences with it, and my suggestion is to improve that experience. I realize Fedora comes with no official support, so I hope no one thinks I'm expecting any, either. ;)
