I've managed a Bugzilla instance for a company I used to work for. It
works reasonable well. Nothing special, it simply gets the job done.

However should I ever be tasked with setting up and managing an issue
tracker again I'll likely give Roundup (http://
roundup.sourceforge.net/) a serious look for two reasons:
- it has an email interface (http://roundup.sourceforge.net/
- it's written in Python, making it's code base arguable more
accessible than Bugzilla's
Having said that I have not yet used it.

Nice thing about Roundup it that you can easily evaluate it simply by
downloading it and running 'python demo.py'

Feature requests can be managed as bugs. You only need to be able to
flag them as features. Both Roundup (priority: feature) and Bugzilla
(severity: enchancement) allow you to do that
