You should have a look at Trac ( and
roundup (

Both are written in Python and provide excellent issue tracking.
They differ a bit in design and approach to issue tracking, so
you will likely need to investigate a bit further before you decide.

Both are easy to extend and adapt to whatever needs you have.
