A replacement for bugzilla. Java based, not free for commercial use, but 
free to OSS projects. Lets you write plugins in Java if you want, 
apparently even has a SOAP interface.

Because (a) Piers is going to stop maintaining bugzilla and (b) Most of 
the other projects are moving to it, which makes it easier to 
cross-assign defects without writing an inter-defect-tracking-system 
protocol and implementing it.

The migration will take all outstanding bugs with it, so nothing should 
be lost.
