This afternoon, or team had an interesting discussion about our bug tracking system. For some time we have not been happy with the existing bugzilla installation, and the task of finding a replacement has floated on the to-do list. We started to discuss replacements again today, but this time it was different. For about a month, we have had no more than two or three bugs in existence at any one time, and these have been fixed very quickly. Perhaps we don’t have so much need for a bug-tracking system after all?
I was very interested to read that Elisabeth Hendrickson takes a strong stance in this direction too:
