What's the importance of "self-hosting" or "closed-sourceness of BTS"?
Aren't these non-issues?

As I see it, potential reporter'd be interested in whether the bugs are dealt 
with promptly and effectively. Potential developer or sponsor'd like to know 
whether BTS is really helping or hindering (chosen wisely).

/like in real life example of freebsd's "BTS" which refused to take my report 
and suggested to write e-mail. But I'd bet it was ideologically pure BTS.
