Bug-tracking always requires user & developer interaction (confirm,
reproduce, comment..). Merly aggregating or collecting information won't
do much good.

OTOH I really like the idea to improve interoperability between apps.

Testing this idea: http://planet.linuxaudio.org/bugs/
currently collects [only] ardour, jack & qtractor tracker's feeds.
Imagine how this would look with over 50 projects. I doubt it would be
very useful. But things could be improved by using more elaborate
RSS/Atom feed queries..

Anyway, this is a one-way system. Users will need to use
upstream-trackers to submit information. This somehow undermines the
idea of providing feedback for interop issues at a central location.

The easiest way to supplement this would be a linux-audio-bugs
email-list or just re-use this list.

Indeed. Implementing a centralized cross-project bug & feature tracker
- possibly with bounties - can become quite complex; not to mention it
requires quite some effort to maintain it.

Please proof me wrong. It'd be a great thing to have.
