This is the current problem that seems to be appearing here. I get why no one wants to touch it, but it doesn’t solve the problem. 

As you said:

It’s 100% true that emails get _buried_ as waves of them come in (LKML itself gets hundreds upon hundreds a day, as I’m sure all of you know) and it just isn’t something I personally see as viable, especially for issues that may or may not be high priority.

Not a terrible idea to me, though obviously, that’s up for debate.

Discourse probably isn’t the best fit here, in my opinion. Jira and YouTrack are the only ones I personally know of that are similar to Bugzilla, although as far as I know, they aren’t open source...
