Now I'm hosting a slightly customized version of bugzilla and found it very helpful. But as our users generally much prefer Korean to English language, I had to translate some part of it.
As soon as I saw the code, I've found it was a big mess of hardcoded html with deprecated tags like "font". I had to "grep" the whole directory to find some hardcoded text to translate. In order to allow end users more flexibillity, I think it should be redesigned to be more modular. I hope at least there should be moderate use of css and i18n support.
It's not my intension to criticize a product which is already prooved useful. But there still left a lot of improvements to be done.
