This is exactly what I would find useful about this.  Presently the only 
way to learn about bugs is to follow MathGroup closely, but even when I 
remember that I've seen a bug (that might be relevant to me at the 
moment) mentioned a couple of months ago, I cannot always find the posts 
   that described it.

With tricky cases that are not bugs the situation is better, but the 
best place to learn about them is still the (quite busy) MathGroup.

getsatisfaction.com is a nice site, but since it's completely open and 
uncontrollable, I'm afraid that it wouldn't be any more useful than 
MathGroup for this purpose:  the useful bug descriptions would still be 
difficult to find in the flood of messages.
