I am against it, as abrt is one of the few packages which really enables
people to do serious bug reporting (especially as it downloads the
corresponding debug packages which are needed to make sense out of a
crash - and does that automagically).

That would be my favourite solution: operate out the part where it
reports to somewhere.

I don't see how to do that against mantis. And I am (except if someone
wants to run it) against switching to bugzilla, if possible.
