I object.  Why do we want yet another ticketing system for Docs?  I was
under the impression Wil Woods and Luke Macken were collaborating on a
better, easier face for Bugzilla.  Is there something that Bugzilla is
not providing?  People can make feature and document requests there
because we have a docs-request component for it.  We may not be linking
to it well, but that's not Bugzilla's fault.  We've got components for
all our authored documents, etc., etc.  This seems uncomfortably like
the "let's make <N> new lists" problem.
