[wxPython] Bug Tracker

Robin Dunn
I've decided to go ahead with using bugzilla instead of waiting for
wxBugTracker to get into a more stable and secure state.  (But once it is I
think we will move to it at that time.)

Anyway, this is to announce the availability of a Bug Tracker tool for
wxWindows and wxPython available at http://wxwindows.org/bugs/.  Anyone may
enter new bugs, or add comments to existing items, but a valid email address
is required to do
so.  (A password will be sent to your email address to verify it.)

Please follow the instructions on the Bug Entry page as close as you can so
we can have a consistent set of data in the DB.

Thanks!

SciTech is now using Bugzilla internally and we are VERY happy
with it. I think it is going to make a huge difference in the
wxWindows effort as well. It make take a small bit of getting used
to, but it will be *well* worth the effort.

What is the status of wxBugTracker? What do you think about
making BugTracker essentially an offline client for Bugzilla? It
would be nice to get involved with that effort instead of starting a
whole new project. As a side benefit, those on the Mozilla team
would get great exposure to wxWindows in action. Maybe it would
start them thinking about wxMozilla???  ;)

Thanks for getting that rolling Robin. Keep up the good work!

There is quite a bit that is done, but quite a bit that is not.  It still
needs email integration, better security, easier adminsitration and
maintainability, (although it is lots easier to tweak and change than
bugzilla is, once you understand the templates it uses.)  It also doesn't
have a real DB on the backend yet, but stores things in structured text
files.

You'd probably have to completly rewrite bugzilla to do it.  And if you're
going to go that far there is no reason to keep bugzilla at all, but just
throw it all away and make something much better, which is what Aleksandras
is trying to do.

I don't know how many are aware of it but contrary to the wx in its name,
wxBugTracker is not and doesn't have a GUI.  It is a background deamon that
talks HTTP to your browser.  Even when you are running it on offline mode you
are still using a proxy version of the deamon.

BTW Aleksandras, there is a software design competition that you should check
out.  It could put some $$ in your pocket if you switch the templates to be
driven from Python rather than your current template language.  Or maybe a
GUI could be written for it using wxPython, that would probably meet the
requirement...  See http://www.software-carpentry.com/ for details.

Given one of the objectives of the above competition, there will probably be
at least a few Bugzilla replacements by the time it is over, so trying to
make it a front end for Bugzilla doesn't make sense since Bugzilla will be
dying soon.
