If anyone else wishes to help develop this further, please feel free to contact Manik Surtani. The help will be much appreciated.
2. Project Roadmap
... is available here.
The bugtracker is distributed with an Apache-style open-source license. View the license here.
Currently the bugtracker is in a state of flux and a major redesign is underway to utilise J2EE and Enterprise Javabeans to distribute the components of the core of the bugtracker. This will allow multiple interfaces (not just a web based one) and lots of scalability and redundancy. Using J2EE's transactions and the JDO model, we hope to provide transparent object persistence as well - making this more database-independent.
In a nutshell, you need MySQL >= 3.21.xx, a web server such as Apache or Microsoft's IIS, a servlet engine such as Jakarta Tomcat, and java2 compliant JDK such as SUN's J2SE. Future releases would also require a J2EE compliant Enterprise Javabeans container such as jBoss.
NOTE: Version 0.1 (the JSP based version) is deprecated and shouldn't be used. The current version is 0.2beta3.
Source and binary packages can be downloaded here, courtesy of SourceForge.
The CVS repository is on SourceForge, and can be accessed here.
I would encourage people to help with the development effort - please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or on ICQ# 853533.
There are 3 mailing lists for this project.
bugtracker-users is for users of the bugtracker software, and can be used to discuss issues such as enhancements, features, issues, installation help, etc.
bugtracker-devs is for contributors involved in developing the bugtracker code.
bugtracker-announce is an announcement list which the bugtracker team would use to announce new releases, features, etc. It is recommended that everyone sign up for this list. This is a low-load list with less than 4 postings every month.
... is pathetic at the moment. A short INSTALL document is available. Best bet is to look through the mailing list archives. Volunteers to do some real documentation? :-)
Bugs on the bugtracker should be reported at http://bugs.javafreedom.espadanet.com (as you can see, we take our own medicine - we're using the bugtracker here!) You will need to register with the bugtracker to submit bugs, feature requests and issues.
Here are a few sample screen shots.
