Since 2003 we have been using SourceForge's bug report and feature request trackers. However, they have never been particularly nice to use, so we've finally decided to migrate everything to our own issue tracker site that runs on a better platform for this purpose.
Thus we are introducing the new deng Bug and Feature Tracker
! It runs on Redmine
and we feel that it is a huge improvement over the old trackers. Here are some of the nice things about the new site:
Reclaiming your user account
- The Roadmap will be automatically generated on the site based on features and bugs assigned to particular versions. We will no longer have to manually maintain the Roadmap page in the wiki.
- You can see an overview of all activity in the tracker.
- Many options for filtering issues to find what is relevant.
- Calendar view for looking at things from a time perspective.
- Right-click context menus for easily updating issue details.
- Supports mobile apps (look for Redmine apps).
- Extensible with plugins for our possible future needs.
While you are free to register a new account if you wish, all of the old bug reports have been attributed to user accounts created automatically based on the SourceForge user names found in the existing bug reports and feature requests. Here is how you can reclaim your existing, automatically migrated account.
All the migrated accounts have been given a randomized password. To reclaim your account, you’ll need to go to the new tracker's Lost Password
page and enter your SourceForge email alias address. This is the address “(SF.net-username)@users
.sourceforge.net”. A password reset link will then be emailed to the entered address.
Please check on SourceForge’s account settings that “Mail Alias Behavior” has been set to “Accept all mail”. Otherwise the reset link mail will not be delivered to you.
If you have any questions, problems or wish to supply a different email address for your existing account, please contact me at skyjake.code (at) gmail com
and I will try to help you.
At some point we will be integrating the new tracker into the main dengine.net site, however due to technical difficulties this isn't doable presently. Existing user accounts will not be affected by the upcoming move, though.
The old trackers on SourceForge are now in read-only mode and will likely be ramped down completely in the future.
