Re: [info] Moving Mailing Lists + Project Management Tools


Today (since I have ALL day to CODE, lol), I'll be finalizing the transfer
of tasks from Launchpad to our task management system. It's available at
http://touchlay.net/tasks. It's recommended that:

   - You create an account (it doesn't have OpenID support yet),
   - Look through all of the tasks currently available,
   - Update them with information you think is appropriate for each,
   - Tag the tasks with more tags to better formulate a network of
   bugs/issues/feature requests
   - *CLOSE* some of the darned things.

I'm working on having the task management system do the following:

   - integrate with our git repositories so that people can just write
   "fixes bug #XXXXX" or "resolves issue #XXXXXX" and have the issue tracker
   be updated as well.
   - allow the user enter "issue:XXXXX" and have it turn into a hyperlink
   wherever it's listed.
   - implement a IRC bot that spits out information from Mantis (though
   this, again requires editing the system a bit more).

Any ideas? *USE THE TRACKER*. lol (http://touchlay.com/tasks)
