Guillaume and Naoko have expressed a need for a Project Management Tool
and I though it would be good to try use a tracker with some project
management functionality or integrates easily with some project
Anyone tried FogBugz, Joel Spolsky's baby? I'm so curious... although
commercial software, who knows, you might get a discount or even a freebie.
The historical position has been that absolutely nothing goes into the
WMF software pool unless it is open source. As I recall, the only
recognized exception was the closed source firmware running the
routers at the server farm. By that standard, even a freebie is not
good enough if the system is closed source.
However, my recollection is based on discussions years ago. On
searching, I couldn't find any policy forbidding closed source
software (is there one?). So, it is possible that closed source might
be looked on as a more acceptable possibility for some functions now
(though I wouldn't bet on it).
