The Roundup Bug Tracker

Roundup is a highly customizable Bug Tracker - and more - written in Python.

Roundup is a simple-to-use and install issue-tracking system with command-line, web and email interfaces. It is based on the winning design from Ka-Ping Yee in the Software Carpentry "Track" design competition.

The current stable version of Roundup is 1.5.x which has quite a comprehensive feature set. Roundup has been deployed for:

  • bug tracking and to-do list management (the classic installation)
  • customer help desk support (with a wizard for the phone answerers, linking to networking, system and development issue trackers)
  • issue management for IETF working groups
  • sales lead tracking
  • conference paper submission and double-blind referee management

It's been designed with flexibility in mind; it's not just another bug tracker. Roundup ships with a demo tracker to play with - after you've unpacked the source, just run python demo.py and load up the URL it prints out!

It is somewhat older than Trac, and some people think it's more mature in some areas (like email integration). Instead of Clearsilver or Genshi it uses TAL/METAL (known from Zope) as a template language.

In some projects both trac and Roundup are used; Roundup can be customized to support trac-style [wiki:...] links to a Trac portal.
