Bug tracking system for GMP

i of course know that the gmp project is open source, but jira is a good 
and they do offer free community licenses to open source projects. i 
have made a request of them on our behalf to grant the gmp project a 
license. if they agree, i will let the group know and we can make a 
decision as to whether or not we want to accept the offer.

as for bugzilla, i suppose once you get used to jira (and other such 
systems), its hard to adjust back to lesser products.  :)    
specifically i find the Bugzilla interface unintuitive, the queuing hard 
to manage and i find a lack of good reporting about bug squashing 
activity. these are three main things you want from bug tracking software!

anyhow, i am good with what ever the group decides of course - but 
thought i'd see if I could get the license for us as a possible option.
