BTS is the acronym for Bug Tracking System and is a software created by the Debian Project for its own needs.
http://www.debian.org/Bugs/ - Debian bug tracking system
- users do not need to authenticate in order to report issues
- maneuverable via email
- has a web interface for viewing and browsing bugs
has multiple filters to show different classes of bugs (ex.: having patches, with solution pending, already fixed, fixed in upstream, regarding localisation issues, etc.) and allows users to create special tags associated with a mail address, tags which are not visible by default; this last feature is called usertags
- interacts automatically with the system that populates the archive
