Wouldn't updating the old Tuleap to the last version fix most of the problems?

Closing issues through commits is easy to manage with Github hooks. 

I tell you this because Github's issues are not as powerful as having a professional bug tracker.

Few days ago, we decided to abandon our current bug and request tracker to follow Dolibarr bugs and features requests.

You must use now the Issue tracker of Github.
You will find here:  (click on link "Issue" on left of page).

Also don't forget to set tags on your report to qualify your report.


Using the old tracker was just a pain for several reasons :

* When closing a bug, we had to close the bug manualy into the bug tracker. It wasn't done or when done, it was a lot of waste ot time. This is past, now closing a bug into github with "Closed #xxx" into the description of the change automatically close the bug.

* The id of bug reported into the comment of github was an id into another system. So switching to code from ticket or to ticket description from code was just awful. Now, one click is enough.

* The old tracker was not public and not visible. You had to create an account making the bug and feature tracker difficult to use for "quick report".

* Our old tracker had a very bad visibility. I hope this will change.

* Our old tracker was maintained by the Dolibarr foundation. This need a lot of time spent by the core team. Removing completely this tasks should provide more free time us.

* Integration with IDE tools like eclipse was difficult. You may find plugins more easily with github.


* That is the negative point. But i think we must accept this to progress: Old tickets still opened, like closed one will just be forgotten. We will enter them back into new GitHub tracker day by day.

Enjoy our new tracking system. Who wil be the first to enter one issue ?
