            Roundup 0.2.4 - an issue tracking system

Changes: See the release notes on the website or the CHANGES.txt distributed 
with the source. This is another bug-fix and feature-add release. Existing

Roundup is a simple-to-use and -install issue-tracking system with 
command-line, web and e-mail interfaces. It is based on the winning design 
from Ka-Ping Yee in the Software Carpentry "Track" design competition.

Roundup manages a number of issues (with flexible properties such as
"description", "priority", and so on) and provides the ability to (a) submit
new issues, (b) find and edit existing issues, and (c) discuss issues with
other participants. The system will facilitate communication among the
participants by managing discussions and notifying interested parties when
issues are edited. One of the major design goals for Roundup that it be 
simple to get going. Roundup is therefore usable "out of the box" with any 
python 2.0+ installation. It doesn't even need to be "installed" to be 
operational, though a disutils-based install script is provided.

It comes with two issue tracker templates and three database back-ends. 
Back-ends for relational databases are being developed.
