The community behind Inkscape – the free software vector drawing tool – have chosen Launchpad as their new bug tracker!
Bryce Harrington, one of the project’s founders, explained why:
“The Inkscape project is gearing up for our next coming release, and based on our experience doing the past release, our current bug tracking system is really not up to the task of managing a large number of bugs.
“Launchpad has all the usual advanced bug management capabilities that we need. We’re also looking forward to making good use of the external bug tracker linking for keeping a watch on key bug reports in Cairo, Gtk, and other projects we depend on.”
Launchpad developer James Henstridge is working with the Inkscape team over the next few days to import their bug history from Sourceforge. If you’re interested in switching your project’s bug tracking to Launchpad – with complete bug history – drop us a mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
