CVSTrac

Serious software development requires keeping track of “issues”: bugs, feature requests, unresolved support incidents, code snippets, prototyping results, URLs, etc. A few months ago, I dumped my home-made FileMaker database for CVSTrac, and I couldn’t be happier. The developer has shown enormous restraint in keeping it simple, and the result is one of the most elegant pieces of open source software that I’ve seen. (Apparently, the code is elegant too.) If you’re on a huge project, you might want something heavier, but CVSTrac is more than enough for most smaller teams, I think. You can try it out on CVSTrac’s own server. I’ve posted a Mac OS X build. Hopefully I’ll have time to write a full review soon.
