At first I thought debbugs was the 'best' system out there. But after I worked
with bugzilla, it was really much more powerful and it _REALLY_ helps the
coder stay on top of bugs - debbugs doesn't.

The only functionality that is in debbugs that is not in Bugzilla is an 'email
gateway' so you can email bug-reports (instead of using cookies/HTTP/etc.)
