I am in the process of setting up Eventum as the bug tracker at Monty Program AB to track bugs in MariaDB.
Any suggestions or comments are appreciated, once I finish the initial setup I will get a test site up for everyone to look over.
I would very very strongly suggest to use the bug tracking facilities at Launchpad. They're neatly linked to branches, allow people to follow, do linking to upstream bugtrackers, etc. OurDelta and Percona also use it, which again provides neat integration.

I am neutral on which solution to use. Some people have expressed the opinion that the bugtracking on Launchpad is rather limited so I was asked to set Eventum up. If Monty decides that Launchpad is sufficient for bugtracking I am happy to use it.

Launchpad is not perfect, but it does pretty well.

Eventum for bugtracking wouldn't be ideal either, unless significant development work was done on it - and you don't have the time for that.

Of the two non-ideals, I prefer launchpad, for all the above reasons.
You know we can even mark a bug as relevant for more than one project, like MariaDB and OurDelta, or XtraDB and MariaDB, etc. I can cope with the less-than-perfect user-interface. These inter- project intergration things are now very important things to consider.
