Whatever did happen to modernizing the gnats database. I know some
ideas of Keystone and Bugzilla were thrown around.. Where did that
I myself think that Mozilla's Bugzilla organization (not necessarily
the software) works great. A lot of cateogories with a default
assignee, actual followups being made, scheduled release milestones,
etc. Theres a few guys reviewing how important stuff is, and all
around, a lot of responsibility. I need not mention the evil PDT
crew :) If it means anything, a lot of people are moving to this
system.. @home, RedHat, LokiGames, etc.. so there is at least some
I myself have pretty extensive experience with Keystone, and a bit
with Bugzilla. While I feel Bugzilla is more tuned for this then
Keystone, I'd like to see *SOMETHING* done.
I myself would happily volunteer to help get something setup in this
regard... just tell me who or what to strangle. GNATS is fine and all,
I just think something else is needed with the kind of scale we're
looking at now. I'll even hack at the command-line tools if need be.
I just think this should be more important to us then we give it
credit. If this should go in another list, feel free to prod me.
