I think bugzilla is both an overkill and on the other hand doesn't have a
sufficently capable or friendly interface to do what we want/need.
Bugzilla essentially only has sense of 'who is doing what' and whetever it
is done or not. It doesn't have a way to present how far in progress
things are (or even track such), its abilities for grouping and dependency
tracking are just slightly better from a semimanual web page based
tracking. This doesn't mean we can't use bugzilla, just it would be better
to have something more suited to this instead.
This all IMHO, of course.
