  I would definitely suggest using Bugzilla here.  They have made it much
easier to configure and setup.  If you would like I can set up a bugzilla
server at bugzilla.crosswire.org if you want to reroute the subdomain.

CVS browser 

  I would recommend both cvsWeb and Bonsai. Bonasi will allow you to have
CVS blame capabilities which is great for remote multi programmer
development.  same goes for both of these as for bugzilla.

There are plenty of Perl scripts to automate this from CVS.

There is an easy Perl script to allow email to all developers on each CVS

Having items like these and a good structured web site make for a
successful open source project.  I think Sword is plenty successful
already but these additions could greatly advance the development.
