I am looking for bug tracking software for an application I have been developing which I now want to bring into pre-pre-pre alpha stages. Its around 80k lines at the moment and I haven't done any bug tracking for the three years that it has been in development.

What software can you recommend?

I only really know of Trac, which looks functionally quite nice. What experiences do you have?

I hope this is the correct location for posting as I don't think this question would be suitable on any other site...

I tried two on my site, BugZilla and FlySpray. I have to say I really like FlySpray for its ease of use and the management system is really good as well. I would highly recommend it.

If you don't mind spending some money, a fully web-based one that requires no install that I have used for other things before that is pretty easy is SquishList.com

  • I have never used Atlassian, but that looks nice. http://www.atlassian.com/software/jira/ I might try that, but if I ever go live, it would be very expensive... Kalyse almost 7 years ago

Redmine is my favorite open source bug tracker / online repository viewer. Keep in mind that even though it is a Rails app, you can run it in Apache using Phusion Passenger.
