Tinderbox allows developers and management to see at a glance what is currently going on in all aspects of the development process. The Tinderbox server prepares HTML pages which display the history of many different development variables. It shows at a glance the history of whether the source code builds and passes all automated tests, who has checked code changes into the version control system, whether the source tree is open or closed and when the state of the tree last changed, what trouble tickets have been closed, and the notices and messages posted by the developers or project manager.
Release Notes: Debugging the Bonsai and Bugzilla interfaces, and specfiles for RPM installation.
Release Notes: This is the first public Beta. This code is more flexible, portable, configurable, and feature rich than Netscape's original Tinderbox. A few companies are running tinderbox2 already, but this is the first public announcement of the project. The author expects people to run into some minor trouble with this version. The problems are believed to be the brief installation instructions and the assumption that the installer is familiar with Perl syntax.
