    Open Source Bug Tracking Software


    Looking for some opinions with regards to Open Source Bug Tracking software.

    I'm looking to implement a bug tracking solution for my business to use with some of our projects.

    Do any of you have any experience with some of the open source ones?

    I've used FogBugz before, but it's not open source and is expensive.

    Thanks!

    bugzilla and flyspray are ones I've come across before (in the $0 camp).

    Or a list of them -> Compared and contrasted

    Personally, I despise Bugzilla. Mantis is marginally better, but still has a terrible interface.

    JIRA is hands down the best bug tracking software I've ever used. It's not free, but it's well worth the price. If you have a small company it's really cheap too.

    Bugzilla does just about everything tracking-related, but it's a bit of a monster. I've had great success configuring and modifying osTicket for my employer a couple of years ago.

    Hi guys, thanks for the tips. I will check them out. Just from my brief glance at them, JIRA looks like it might be a winner.
