This is most excellent. Thanks for all the work to set it up!

> Hi all -
> We've finally got a bug tracker running again. Since RT had some
> problems that we couldn't figure out how to work around (namely,
> sending tons and tons of e-mail when ticket status changed) and it's
> interface made it difficult to generate custom queries, we
> decided to
> look for other options. After some searching, it seemed that a
> project called Trac would give us what we were looking for, and has
> some nice integration with Subversion.
> The new URL for our bug tracker is:
> By default, you will see the anonymous view, which basically allows
> you to do nothing more than see the open bugs in the system. If you
> click on the "login" button and use your SVN username /
> password, you
> will be able to file bugs and see more information about the current
> state of the SVN repository. As we discussed, only developers with
> SVN access can create or modify bugs. In the future, this may
> change, of course.
> Using the system is pretty self explanatory. One thing I should
> point out is that a "milestone" is an upcoming release for which the
> bug must be fixed / implemented / etc. A "version" on the other
> hand, is where the bug was discovered.
> By default, the only people who are some how participating in
> the bug
> (either by creating it, being assigned the bug, or have added
> themselves to the cc list) will receive e-mail notification on
> change. If you want to receive an e-mail whenever any bug in the
> system changes, you can re-subscribe to the bugs_at_open-mpi
> mailing list.
> There are some nice reports that you can view to get information on
> current bugs. These include:
> - tickets without owners
> - "my" open tickets
> - tickets for each milestone
> It's quite easy to add new reports, so if you have ideas on what you
> would like to see, please let me know. Jeff has already suggested a
> milestone view that only shows bug reports (as opposed to bug
> reports
> + feature requests). I'll probably add that in the next day or two.
> Right now, we're still playing around with the integration between
> Trac and Subversion. But it should be possible to change the status
> of a ticket from a SVN commit message. It's also possible to
> associate a commit with a particular bug number by adding something
> like "ticket:1" (without the quotes) to your commit message to
> associate the commit with ticket # 1. The ticket will automatically
> be updated to reflect the connection.
> I'll add bugs as they come in on the users and devel mailing lists.
> I'll also be hounding people to pick up unassigned bugs. For now,
> plan on receiving e-mails about unassigned bugs on Mondays and then
> hearing about them on the weekly telecon ;). Please let me know if
> you have any questions about the bug tracker.
