  • I too spent more than a few hours hacking bugzilla into something more usuable, and have recently revisited it with the Mayfly project - essentially porting it to Class::DBI and Maypole.

    I haven't had a chance to build the maypole side yet but I have some CDBI classes that work with an existing bugzilla database.

    I am giving very serious thought to breaking backwards compatbility and providing a migration script rather than keeping the bugzilla database exactly as it is.

    let me know what other bits you'd like

    @JAPH = qw(Hacker Perl Another Just);
    print reverse @JAPH;
    • Well, if mayfly doesn't fix the serious usability issues with bugzilla's interface, not mentioning the unability to write plugins and so on, I don't think it's worth considering. Have higher goals! Even if your project approaches 10% of RT it will still be much better than the bugzilla abomination.
      • I have been thinking about setting up a bug tracker and a support ticket/tracker and have been mentally debating whether or not these two needs should be served by a single application. I usually think of RT as being more in the support ticket category but obviously it can be used for both ( How well, though, does it compare against other tools designed specifically for bug tracking?
