Why did I write bugtrack?
I am currently using bugzilla and was also responsible for setting it up on our system. We primarily use postgres and had never used mySQL before. Setting it all up was a bit of a challenge. The database design is not portable either.

This was partly "just for fun" and to make a more portable program with a simplier interface. I have tested this with postgres/apache on linux and access/omnihttpd on windows. The only non portable data type I believe I used was "serial" for postgres and "counter" for access. Also more of the parameters are user definable.

Setup should be easier too. There are only 6 required files (over 60 for bugzilla) and no dependencies on other stuff like bonsai, etc.

Again, it was fun developing and I'd definitely appreciate ideas!

How is this different?
How is this different from Jitterbug and Bugzilla? Why should I use this instead?
