Post details: php bugtracking systems

Apr 15, 2006 : php bugtracking systems

So there are a lot of bugtracking systems out there, although it took me a while to start finding them. Wikipidia and are good places to start.

So I want to throw up a real bugtracking system for konfidi. JIRA, of course, would be excellent, but it's not yet worth it to request a license and figure out where we would host it. I want a php bugtracker that I can throw up on the site (a SourceForge clone).

Here's my quick evaluation of the top 5 contenders features that I would like to have. ?=questionable, -=not a feature, no entry=couldn't find evidence for or against

Immature; not even self-hosting; demo is empty
Somewhat unintuitive UI

emails to dev list : ?B F
schedule issues for milestones : B F ?M
account creation /w email verification : B -E F P M
attachments : B F P M
guest access : ?B F M

SVN integration: -B (patch)E -F -P M
personal bug subscriptions : B F M
reports : B F P M
build changelog file: M

Now I probably should set up BUGS, flyspray, and/or Mantis to do a real evaluation.

Anyone have recommendations?

Internet Explorer’s ability to render standard XHTML and CSS is fairly limited, and many of the w3c guidelines are implemented in quite a broken way. Please file a bug report with Microsoft to fix their browser."

I can understand their viewpoint, but in lots of cases that's just not acceptable.

I used mantisbt long time ago, and some projects I follow are still using it. Give it a try (:

For Web development we tryed BUGS and Flyspray and both are far too complex.

Bugs is ok, if you have 20 developers, 2 full time testers and at least 2 team managers. and one head of production.

Filing and assigning one single bug takes 10 clicks !!!

To get the list of all open bugs for a particular project is 4 clicks !!!

Nothing for small, lean teams...
