For example, plugin 10180, "ping the remote host" is at least not
present in Debian's current nessus-plugins package, which makes
scanning of network ranges _painfully_ slow since every IP address is
fully scanned even if there's no host available.

both sourgeforge and alioth have tracker applications, there is
bugzilla and one could even have a local installation of debbugs, the
software running Debian's BTS.
