The bug tracker ideas sound interesting, but the whole business of needing a gmail account to work on a free software project hosted there is somewhere between annoying and scary.
We've already seen gmail account offer spam issues drown out useful conversation on some mailing lists. (Well, I haven't in a while, since I have a mailfilter to drop any mail that looks like one in /dev/null.) Heaven help a project where all the developers need to obtain a gmail account before doing work, and that spam becomes on-topic and required!
