I leave this to others to decide.

+0 .. It is a commercial product, but I heard a lot of good things about it.

> 2) Bugzilla at http://issues.apache.org/bugzilla/

-0. A long time ago I didn't like bugzilla. And I have something against big
perl projects. Bugzilla survived a long time though.

I don't think we should keep this on tigris, but it could stay there for a
bit longer if the other option would be to convert twice.

+0. I like the simpilicity, but I don't think using google code for just the
issuetracker is what we want.

> 5) Set up our own tracker on ASF hardware (eg. Trac). [I do not

I like Traq, but I think we should leave the management to another team, so
this would be a -0 too.

So, no real vote from me on this RFC.
