Yes. Really.

It does have a bugzilla. And it does work. It's just less optimal than
other solutions. And I don't want people complaining about the same
problems in a different forum. If we're going to solve the problems,
then they should be solved in a useful way. Bugzilla doesn't provide
useful status tracking. It provides that a bug is either open or
resolved. And we can't change those fields per-project. And the admin
situation on bugzilla is even less optimal.

If there are specific examples, please file bugs on Launchpad itself.
I'm sure the developers and design team would be quite happy to have
useful feedback so that the usability can be improved.
