Python Software Foundation’s Infrastructure commitee has started the process of finding a new tracker system to be used by the Python development team as a replacement for SourceForge. The Python developers would like to use a new bug tracker for the Python project and want to run trials using various systems.
The development team is unhappy with SourceForge for several reasons like :-
* Bad interface
* Lack of reliability
* Lack of workflow controls
According to Brett Cannon, The Chairman of Python Software Foundation Infrastructure committee, “We will accept new trackers for up to a maximum of two months starting 2006-06-05 . If trackers cease to be suggested, we will close acceptance one month after the last tracker proposed. This allows us to not have this process carry on for three months if there is no need for it to thanks to people getting trackers up quickly.”
