We had such a list.  We could not maintain it.

I was suggesting a hybrid of the two ideas.  My idea was that the site
would list bugs with descriptions, and allow for commentary.  The
commentary need not be read, of course, just as I will often read a
Slashdot article and skip the noise people add.  The purpose of the
commentary is simply to allow people to post additional information,
patches, insights, etc. 

Just an idea, though.
