gnats/gnatsweb: They are under development again, have a long
tradition, feature rich database. the new version (4.something ALPHA)
is quite flexible.

Reports can be filed via mail and web.

see http://sourceware.cygnus.com (IIRC)

Surely this also heavily depends on what you intend to do with this
state machine.

As a matter of personal preference i'd vote for UTF-8, but on a more
