Each report gets its own issue id.  You'll get a confirmation
message as soon as anyone replies to the issue.

The email address identifies the person, if you want to *edit*
stuff inside the BTS itself you have to login with an account.

You can use the BTS via mail as well:

It works better than reportbug because too many *users* of grml
either didn't know about reportbug or are afraid of it at all (yeah,
not a joke - that's really not uncommon). It works just fine for the
administration side as well, that's why we switched from reportbug
to roundup.
