Which means... what ?
That we have the same workflow for issues for Packman than for
SUSE maintenance ?
How is that relevant in any way ?
(and we can have the same in JIRA, btw)

Or that we have the same ugly and overly complex user interface
as the bugzilla at Novell ? (actually we won't because we won't
have the dozen additional custom fields and extensions that the
Novell bugzilla has)

If you believe the Novell/SUSE bugzilla is a cool thing, please
look at the ton of threads and complaints about it over the
years on the opensuse lists.

Our needs are quite simple, we don't need complex workflows,
we don't need a lot of fields nor customization, which also
means that bugzilla still qualifies as an option.

Ultimately, I personally believe the distinguishing factor
should probably be user-friendliness:
* how easy is it to register an account
* how easy and clear is the user interface to perform common

IMHO, JIRA is better on those points, but maybe that's just me
