SC-Track Roundup 0.4.4 - an issue tracking system

Note: If you have an existing roundup installation, make a backup of your
database. Make sure you read doc/upgrading.txt!

This is probably the last 0.4 maintenance release, since I hope to release
the first 0.5 beta next week :)

Roundup requires python 2.1.1 for correct operation. Support for dumbdbm
requires python 2.1.2 or 2.2. 2.1.3 and 2.2.1 are recommended.

This is a bugfix release, fixing:

 . bug in database opening
 . sf bug #596155: bug with multilink
 . sf bug #600699: documentation in doc/getting_started.txt
 . sf bug #600700: doc/upgrading.txt: no info about 0.4.3
 . sf bug #603696: Mail followup not inserted
 . sf bug #603703: way to unassign issues

About Roundup

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.

Note: Ping is not responsible for this project. The contact for this project

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.
