Is your country broken?

Lorenzo Bolognini has just released a bug tracker with a twist. You use it to raise and track bugs in your country. For now, you can only track bugs in Italy. Let’s hope he’s load tested the system. According to Lorenzo, here are the top 5 bugs in Italy:

    2. I was ready to point out that at least we have, but the site is (again) under construction. At least seems to be working.
