I have to agree with Mark’s latest blog post regarding launchpad being able to open bugs in other bugzillas… There’s been a couple of times when I’ve wanted to open a bug in Debian through launchpad – as It would be easier to do it that way.
However, I’ve thought of another solution. I’d love to see bugzilla adopt some sort of “Global” account system – where you can use your bugzilla account from one bugtracker in another. Sort of the way openID and Jabber do things – the whole account@bugzilla. This would then open up the doors to be able to cross post the same bug across many bugzillas.
I believe this is similar to what launchpad intends to do eventually – however – I think it would be better as native bugzilla code.
I mean – one centralised “bugzilla” may be good… but – a distributed bugzilla would be even better
