[coreboot] setting up a bug tracker

I'm good with redmine, and if Lynxis is going to be the administrator,
I think it's reasonable that he should be able to decide in what he's
going to be working on.
I had done some looking and thinking about before Lynxis offered to
set up redmine, so I'll still present those items.
These were my questions about what the community wanted from a bug tracker:
- Is git integration needed or desired? (It might be nice, but I
didn't think it was needed)
- How about IRC integration? (I'd say no, but i wanted to put it out there)
- Any requirements on the language that the tracker is written in?
Python, Perl, Php, and Ruby seem to be the choices.
- Are there any required login methods? Does it need to support the
login types that review.coreboot.org supports?
- Is (anonymous) public reporting desired, or do we want to require
sign-in and user validation first? (I'd vote for sign in)
These were the results of looking through all of the various defect
trackers - mostly from wikipedia's page:
System Git License Language demo or example
Bugzilla Yes MPL Perl https://landfill.bugzilla.org/
Flyspray No? LGPL 2.1 PHP https://bugs.flyspray.org/
MantisBT Yes GPL PHP
Redmine Yes GPLv2 Ruby http://demo.redmine.org/
Roundup No MIT Python http://issues.roundup-tracker.org/
The Bug Genie Yes Mozilla PHP
I did like the looks of Flyspray - It seems pretty light weight - as
opposed to bugzilla, which seems overly large for what we need.
MantisBT and Redmine were the others that I though looked interesting.
Roundup and The Bug Genie didn't particularly appeal to me, but they
seemed fit the criteria.
Trac and Apache Bloodhound were also initially on my list, but I
removed them due to Patrick's comments.
