Re: Bug Tracking Software

At PhoenixMUD we have gotten very luck.  We have an imm who runs a Lotus
Note DB site.  He has some ftp scripts that nightly get the bug/idea/typo
files, parses them, and inserts them into a database that allows us to set
the status of an item (available/assigned/resolved/rejected/moron) and
set who is responsible for the item.  Is a great system, especially because
Notes has a web interface.  You don't need that god aweful client.  The
best solution I could think of would be perl parsing into MySQL with a web
front end.   I don't know if this exists though.

For every crash there is a reason.
Regrettably, "Cosmic Rays" qualifies as a reason.
