In general I think having a better way to track submitted patches so
that they don't get lost is
a very good idea. My one concern about attaching it to Bugzilla is:
What if someone wants to
submit a patch for a (new) feature or extension, rather than a bug?
Is Bugzilla supposed to be used
to track new feature development as well as existing bugs? (I really
don't know; I'm just asking).
Yes Bugzilla is used to keep track of feature development and other
enhancements like optimization passes
I am not sure this is true in reality. Look at the last 100 patches
posted on gcc-patch. How many of them has bugzilla reference ?
http://gcc.gnu.org/contribute.html#patches does not ask bugzilla
reference for new features.
