The Brief History of Trac

Trac is not an original idea. It owes much to the many project management and issue tracking systems out there, and particularly the excellent CVSTrac program and to its author(s).

The project started as a reimplementation of CVSTrac in python and an entertaining exercise, as well as toying with the SQLite embeddable database. Over time, as is common, the scope of the endeavor broadened, a goal formed and it was brought on its current course.

We intend and hope that Trac be a viable platform to explore and expand how and what can be done with wiki-based software project management with low ceremony.

Mostly though, we at the TracProject and EdgewallSoftware hope Trac will prove itself practical and useful to others.
