Project Bugtracker

This projects aims at the renewal of the bugtracker. Currently Mantis is used at OpenCSW. Specifically the following goals should be addressed:

  • Command line tools to create and list bugs (via SOAP?)
  • Possibility to file bugs against a specific REV of a package (needed to find all bugs present in the packages of a specific catalog)
  • "Bundling" multiple packages from the same upstream software (like *, *_devel, *_doc and *_rt)
  • Integration in a page per bundle aggregating bugs and integration a wiki-page editable by the maintainer and link to the GAR recipe

The current favorite bugtracker is JIRA.

JIRA desktop Client - Lite version is free for open source projects

Information on importing from Mantis is available in the Atlassian documentation at
