Back in June, the Python Software Foundation's Infrastructure Committee
asked for help in the search for a new issue tracker to replace SourceForge
(see http://wiki.python.org/moin/CallForTrackers for details). We asked
people who wished to help with the search to install their favourite issue
tracker and import a data dump of our issues from SourceForge. We placed a
deadline of August 7th to have the installation up and going. We realized
that this was a large request to make of the community, but we needed to
make sure that we got to evaluate any candidate trackers with the amount of
issues that Python has so as to get a real-world feel.

Not surprisingly, the community stepped up to the challenge with four
different test tracker installations by the deadline! We have one for JIRA,
Roundup, Trac, and Launchpad. The current schedule calls for the
Infrastructure Committee to spend the next month evaluating the four
trackers and making a decision on which one to go with. This might slip,
though, since this overlaps with traditional American and European vacation
time. But the slippage will not go beyond October 1.

On behalf of the Infrastructure committee I thank the people who took the
time and effort to set up a test tracker to help improve the development of
