> Hey coreboot folks,
> people were nagging me to set up a bug tracker for the project.
> Last time we dicussed that, we mostly quibbled over the UI and data
> model (whether the tracker should feature free form vs. structured
> data bug entry), and that's a discussion I don't want to participate
> in, so I'm staying out of the decision which bug tracker it should be.
> My offer is: Figure out (collectively) what issue tracker is suitable
> for coreboot, promise you'll help keeping it clean (so it doesn't
> become a graveyard like our trac instance), and I'll set it up.
> Only four constraints as far as I'm concerned:
> 1. It must be somewhat CPU efficient. Funnily that rules out trac.
> 2. It must be maintained. I have no interest in watching out for XSS
> issues myself.
> 3. It must be OSI friendly licensed. Jira and similar "special license
> for open source projects we like" stuff doesn't count.
> 4. It must run on Linux (since that's what the server uses)
> It also shouldn't be too esoteric. I reserve the right to simply give
> up if installing the tracker involves having to figure out how to set
> up an S/360 emulator, then build the open source issue tracker using a
> K compiler that can only be found on Abandonware websites that are
> written in scripts (as in character sets) that I can't read.

Quoting http://trac.edgewall.org/wiki/FlySpray "Flyspray's development
stalled in 2013, but restarted in 2015 with the promise to deliver
version 1.0 in April-June 2015." It's now at 1.0b2
