Since bugs will always be present and should be reported in bug trackers instead of on mailing lists so we need to ignore that in thiskind of decision making.
I was persuaded by this argument at one time but my own experience with other projects has led me to a slight modification of it. All software has bugs and missing features, true, but how quickly fixes and enhancements will be created or merged by upstream (depending on how much development you/your project can spend on it) is a huge factor in these decisions. Unresponsive or resistant upstreams can ruin an otherwise decent piece of software.
Which of the upstream projects is worse^Wbetter in this regard is, of course, open for debate.
