SC-Track Roundup 0.6.3 - an issue tracking system

I'm pleased to announce this maintenance release of Roundup which fixes
some bugs:

- added script to help migrating queries from pre-0.6 trackers
- fixed javascript for help window for only one checkbox case
- Date +/- Interval now works, and Date - Date also works
- handle socket timeout exception (thanks Marcus Priesch)
- fixed retirement of items in rdbms imports (sf bug 841355)
- fixed bug in looking up journal of newly-created items in *dbm backends
- fixed detectors fix incorrectly fixed in bugfix release 0.6.2
- added note to upgrading doc for detectors fix in 0.6.2

If you're upgrading from an older version of Roundup you *must* follow
the "Software Upgrade" guidelines given in the maintenance documentation.

Roundup requires python 2.1.3 or later for correct operation. Python 2.3.1
or later is strongly recommended.

To give Roundup a try, just download (see below), unpack and run::

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 2.1+ 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 (a classic bug/feature tracker and
a minimal skeleton) and six database back-ends (anydbm, bsddb, bsddb3, sqlite,
metakit and mysql).
