Description:Clear All your cookies, logout of mantis and try to view a bug (ie: just go to
http://bugs.digium.com/view.php?id=4188 ) This requires logging in and is not very "open" for OSS. I do however think that posting bugs should require an account to eliminate people from using mantis as just another way to spam us all about ${INSERT_FAVORITE_DRUG_OR_SCAM_HERE} .

eh ... I don't know.  I think I vote to just leave it how it is.

This hampers non regular contributors from searching the bugs and contributing to testing.  It does not really affect me, but it would be nice to turn it back on for them.

What about google. this will not allow google to index this site, and this site has been a life saver since the discussions usualy put an in depth explanation on a feature.
I think it should be turned off, so anyboyd can at least browse without logging in.

ok, ok.  :)  I'll send an email to Matt Brooks, the guy at Digium who has been working on Mantis for us.

Anonymous users should be able to view bugs now.  I had to add the following to the config_inc.php file under mantis:

       $g_allow_anonymous_login        = ON;
       $g_anonymous_account            = 'anonymous';

       $g_view_summary_threshold       = VIEWER;
       $g_view_attachments_threshold   = VIEWER;
