We had a discussion about bug management systems on zope3-dev last year
and Canonical (repr. by Steve) made the offer to care for migration,
hosting and real support when we choose LP.

Some people were offered beta accounts around that time to be able to
play with the then upcoming system.

After that we decided to go for it, as LP is an attractive platform for
OS projects and they also have some upcoming offers that we are
considering for the future as well (maybe code hosting, maybe mailing

So far my experience with LP for bugtracking is good and I like the
system.The general use of LP bugtracking is pretty good and the
integration with release planning is very nice. There are some rough
edges, but those are getting better.

I hope I recap'ed this correctly.
