Mainly its simplicity. All it does is track issues. It took 5 minutes to
install, allowing me to add issues right away. We've been using it for
about two months now.

It is _very_ easy to customize. Its written in python, although you
don't really need to know any to customize it. I added a difficulty
field to the DB yesterday and colorized our issue lists based on this in
about 20 minutes. This involved adding about three lines of python and
changing the web interface templates a bit.

It keeps track of all the changes that ever occured in the system. The
default schema is quite sane.

I did find some of the "detectors" installed by default annoying -- they
would change the status of the issue, e.g. from "resolved" to "chatting"
if you added a message to a resolved issue. But this was again trivial
to change.

Very much so.

It does not come built-in with a tool to aggregate statistics. But it
provides all the data, and a convenient way to access it, so I'll
probably add such a tool

All it does is track issues. It has no interaction with subversion
(although it could be customized to have some). Although it does have a
certain elegant simplicity common with svn.
