It isn't.  The only difference is visibility really.  Only so many people go
into Mantis right now compared to visiting the website.

One of my things i would love to do is get better integration between the
bug tracker and website, but that is a long term thing really, sadly.  But
at any rate, what they are suggesting, if I read it right, is to move the
donatin buttons for a few select, and large Mantis feature requests, or bug
reports, to the front page and have the ability to pledge straight from
there.  Again if I am reading it correctly.  It makes some sense, we know
that feature of Mantis hasn't been utilized to much as it is.
