NEW SITE FEATURE: Bug Tracker + Feature Request System
« on: October 30, 2005, 02:42:47 AM »
http://www.donationc...m/Software/Tracking/

This will soon become the official way of submitting bug reports and feature requests for all software on DonationCoder.com.

Such a system should make it much easier to keep track of requests and bugs and insure that none are overlooked.

We will probably be doing some tweaking of that section in the upcoming weeks; software is the Open Source Mantis system.

Any way to combine the username/password from DonationCoder and the username/password required to access mantis?  There are too many passwords, pin numbers, and irrevelant trivia to keep track of... one more and I explode!  Looks like a good addition to the site though,

Great ... will people be able to read what is going on here or will it be private support etc. ?

Good idea, kfitting ...

Again - add to the menu bar?

we've been discussing this - i definitely agree it would be a nice thing to do.

Hey Mouser,

Just a thought.  I love Mantis.  I found it a few years ago and keep going back to it anytime I need a tracking application.  Good job for finding and using it.

i have to say i've been quite happy with mantis; it may be a tiny bit of overkill for us here but it's definitely a very nice thing.

i do have to say that the very fact of having a bug tracker has made much more of a positive difference than i expected.  having a central list of bugs to be fixed really helps focus attention on them and keep track of them.  i definitely recommend a bug tracker for any non-trivial project.
