Easy to submit bugs

 I have done a web interface in php starting from where DDTS (defects) are
sent by mail to the DDTS server; runs well in our intranet (can send
screenshots if you are interested)
 is fast, simple and can be organized on mysql tables (mine is not) if the
products are changing a lot.
 there are lots of DDTS applications (servers) including Open Source ones to
be used a Depot for defects.
 all this is done considering that the user that submits a bug knows a bit
more the architecture of the OS, the product or application or where to file
the bug in.
Pro: the loading of developers is much reduced and creates better workflow.
Contra: lots of users don't know how/where to file the bug.

In case a "unified" bug report interface shall be implemented I consider the
followings as
pro: bugs flooding (can be seen as contra)
- a dedicated person should read all bugs and file them per
- lots of duplicates
- not necessary bugs reported

 happy to participate in this domain as I think has one of the most
