Apparently, and taking in consideration the RFC voting system topic, (new) system should have (or should allow to create) a powerful RFC tracking system.

I don't think they should be combined. The ideas centre if for your average joe and josphine public to come and vote on features that as part of the community they would think are nice. They wouldn't want to go to a bug tracker, go past all the implementation talk etc. just to say they liked something. At the moment idea torrent is being tested and I believe someone is developing their own version and I think they would be better solutions than too combine it with the tracker, if combining with the tracker was a good idea then they would use the JIRA voting.

I never suggested to combine the bug and RFC trackers here.

Your saying that a powerful RFC tracking system needs to be included in the tracker... I said that I thought they should be two completely separate entities.

I didn't say anything about any bug tracker. JIRA is not only a bug tracking, but a project tracking system.
So, having RFC tracking withing such tool would be a good thing.
Hope I'm not confusing anybody this time again :)

One thing that would be nice for whatever we choose would be to decrease the number of places in which discussion about the same feature take place. For instance, right now there's a Discussion forum for each version to sort of get feedback on ideas without the technical aspects, there's the RFC forum for the more in-depth discussion once a feature is more likely to be implemented, there's the JIRA ticket discussion area, and eventually there's the Pull Request discussion area. Especially when pull requests are tagged as WIP and as such are going to be there for a while, the discussion in the pull request is not always just about the actual code but also implementation. That makes 4 separate places in which people can discuss the one feature, which can be confusing and difficult to follow.

+1. At minimum, there should be a workflow where discusson moves along from one station to the next with fore- and backlinks.

For an integrated issue tracking/patch review/discussion system take a look at how Drupal does it: http://drupal.org/node/1130814. They even have regression test results inline.
