Thank you very much for this observation and the reference!
The Pari/GP site does indeed have a nice bug tracking system.

Yes, this is an excellent idea. In fact, it turns out that
it is *easy* to do this for Axiom. All that was required was
to use a specific name in email sent to
I have made the required change so that now all email sent to




will automatically create a new issue.

How simple!

Further, submitting bugs this way keeps the proper formatting
of the email including indentations, embedded LaTeX and Axiom
commands, etc. without having to fiddle with the page type.

Also this solves a problem I was having with formatting of
bug reports what were originally filed on Savannah.


Thanks again.
