Trac – enhanced wiki and issue tracking system

Trac is an enhanced wiki and issue tracking system for software development projects. Trac uses a minimalistic approach to web-based software project management.

It provides an interface to Subversion (or other version control systems), an integrated Wiki and convenient reporting facilities.

Trac has an issue tracker which is similar in concept to Bugzilla. Tickets are used for project tasks, feature requests, bug reports, and other software related issues. Hundreds of companies and organisations use Trac on a regular basis.

Features include:

  • Allows hyperlinking information between a computer bug database, revision control and wiki content.
  • Serves as a web interface to a version control system like Subversion, Git, Mercurial, Bazaar and Darcs.
  • Project management (Roadmap, Milestones, etc).
  • Ticket system (bug tracking, tasks, etc).
  • Fine-grained permissions (since 0.11).
  • Timeline of all recent activity.
  • Wiki.
  • Customized reporting.
  • VCS web interface.
  • RSS Feeds.
  • Multiple project support.
  • Environment extensibility (via Python plugins).
  • iCal export.
