Trac is very strange to administer. It was weird coming from the Php world.
The callweaver project is currently using retrospectiva which seems to work
OK, I have not been administering that.  Mantis seems kind of lame when you
look at more recent efforts (Jira?) but if it does what you need, there you

Subject: [Cialug] Opinions on Bug Trackers

Hello Luggers,

Does anyone have any particular feelings about good or bad bug tracking
systems?  Some people here at my new work are talking about Mantis [1],
which I've never used.  (They're currently using some hideous primordial
hacked up database, and are looking to modernize.)

Anyone love/hate Mantis, or any other bug tracker?  (trac, bugzilla, etc.?)
