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.

0.7.5 is a bug fix release, including:

- - force lookup of journal props in anydbm filtering
- - fixed lookup of "missing" Link values for new props in anydbm backend
- - allow list of values for id, Number and Boolean filtering in anydbm
- - fixed some more mysql 0.6->0.7 upgrade bugs (sf bug 950410)
- - fixed Boolean values in postgresql (sf bugs 972546 and 972600)
- - fixed -g arg to roundup-server (sf bug 973946)
- - better roundup-server usage string (sf bug 973352)
- - include "context" always, as documented (sf bug 965447)
- - fixed REMOTE_USER (external HTTP Basic auth) (sf bug 977309)
- - fixed roundup-admin "find" to use better value parsing
- - fixed RDBMS Class.find() to handle None value in multiple find
- - export now stores file "content" in separate files in export directory

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.

About Roundup

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 seven database back-ends (anydbm, bsddb, bsddb3,
sqlite, metakit, mysql and postgresql).
