OK, so while there's no mail interface, your contributor can just submit an anonymous comment, or register an account (i.e. "so that I can keep other anonymous posters out" would not be fixed anyway).

1. convenience for the users

2. anonymous comments can be made without providing a back link, i.e., there is no way to get back to the commenter and ask him for more information. mail gateway is the exact opposite: it guarantees an easy link back to the commenter.

What is the difference with allowing anonymous comments?

some people do not want to get an extra account for each contribution they make.

no, I mean a general optional mail interface (i.e., so that one can reply to the mail notification and the reply is added to the bug).

No - but why is it a problem to get a Savannah account?
Plus I don't see how we could add a mail interface that would exclude other people (only include him) without Savannah knowing about him?

one of my contributors does not have a savannah account and does not want to get one.
is there a way for him to interact with the savannah bug tracker via e-mail so that I can keep other anonymous posters out?
