Sun: Finally Updating the BugParade, Looking for New Infrastructure

Take a look at how atlassian provides *free* licenses for opensource projects.

B.T.W. - I am in no way affiliated with atlassian or JIRA. I'm a heavy user of their software for opensource projects and think they kick serious ass.

@Ryan, I should have qualified "free". I remember (long ago) when people were just starting to propose using JIRA for bug tracking at the ASF there were a number of people who were against it because it wasn't "free" as in "freedom".


I've been won over by the tool itself, but that isn't to say that I wouldn't be excited if there was an open source tool that could compete. I just don't see it happening because as you have already mentioned "they kick serious ass".
