Yes. It is _possible_ (but not quickly done). We just need to create a
new mailing list (axiom-dev-announce for example), and subscribe to it
the BTS. For CVS updates, it is possible to install the CVSreport
program, available on Savannah. I already have done it for another
Savannah project. 

Should I do this for Axiom?

Oh yes. Maybe. I usually log onto savannah with project administrator
rights, so I might see some fields that other users don't. I have check:
I cannot make it available for non project member.

In other word, if you create a Savannah account and I add you as a
project member, you'll have access to those fields.

But otherwise, I set the severity when looking at bugs. You can also add
a comment in the bug report itself.

I would place the failing output into "Error message:" part.

I don't think so. You should submit a bug report on the savannah project
on Savannah. ;)
