April Project of the Month: Mantis Bug Tracker

April 2010 Project of the Month

April showers bring May flowers – and a new Project of the Month. All year we’ll be honoring projects that have been with us at least ten years, and this month’s nod goes to Mantis Bug Tracker.

If you’re not familiar with this project, you owe it to yourself to get acquainted. Mantis BT is a web-based bug tracker that’s easy to deploy and that has a lot of history and maturity under its belt.

Project developer David Hicks says, “The MantisBT project has a significant capability to change the way software developers run their own projects. Our users are exposed and captive to the operation of the MantisBT project itself. The reason they’re visiting our web site is that their job is typically one that requires them to set up development infrastructure for a project. They see us using Git for version control and MantisBT to manage the project. Thus I think many of our users (sometimes unknowingly) look up to the MantisBT project as a role model for their own projects.”
