There are commercial products that do this kind of thing already, but if
you are not opposed to rolling your own:
Make it so a process can act upon messages received at
bugs at theircompany.com (done via .forward, .maildelivery, .qmail, etc...,
or a special account that downloads email via POP3---easiest is on the
MTA because no login information is required---either way you want to
make sure your script is written securely).
Then have it submit a new ticket to the Fossil repository for the
project (they aren't using Fossil yet?) and email out the link to the
Fossil ticket identifier to recipient list for that project. If an
existing ticket identifier (UUID/SHA1 hash for the ticket) is included
in the email, then simply update the ticket and email out the link to
