New bugtracker live
March 2, 2011 by 4levels
After multiple IRC meetups we've decided to start using Redmine as bug-tracker for Diem.
What is Redmine?
Redmine is a flexible project management web application.
Written using Ruby on Rails framework, it is cross-platform and cross-database.
Redmine is open source and released under the terms of the GNU General Public License v2 (GPL).
Installing Ruby and Redmine was not a breeze on our Debian / Nginx box but hey, we managed after all! Using Redmine will allow all of us to follow up more easily and closely to the current and inevitable future issues.
Send in the bugs!
Please feel free to register an account on bugs.diem-project.org and start reporting those head-aching, PITA bugs that we all want to squash and forget.
Give us a break..
We're all in this together, so please keep in mind to provide as much information as possible when reporting new bugs. First of all check if no similar bug already exists by searching the existing ones. Do mention the steps to reproduce the bug and please address us in a friendly way to get things sorted out quickly. No one is getting paid for developing Diem, not to mention following up on bugs. Yes, they can be very frustrating but please don't use us to get this of your chest, we hate them as much as you do ;-)
Want to help?
We'll need to collect and verify all existing bugs reported in our forum, on GitHub and the mailing list to insert them into Redmine as well, any help with this is greatly appreciated!
A big thanks to Stéphane for pushing me to give the Ruby install another chance as I gave up before, a big holla to our founding father Thibault for creating the DNS records and big love to all of you enthusiasts using and improving Diem every day!
