ditz version 0.2 has been released!

* <http://ditz.rubyforge.org>

Ditz is a simple, light-weight distributed issue tracker designed to work with
distributed version control systems like darcs and git. Ditz maintains an issue
database directory on disk, with files written in a line-based and human-
editable format. This directory is kept under version control alongside
project code. Changes in issue state is handled by version control like code
change: included as part of a commit, merged with changes from other
developers, conflict-resolved in the standard manner, etc.

Ditz provides a simple, console-based interface for creating and updating the
issue database files, and some rudimentary HTML generation capabilities for
producing world-readable status pages. It offers no central public method of
bug submission.

Release notes:

In ditz 0.2, we store issues per file. This avoids many unnecessary conflicts
that occur in the single-file case.

To upgrade your bugs.yaml to a bugs/ directory, you must run


# set up project. creates the bugs.yaml file.
1. ditz init
2. ditz add-release

# add an issue
3. ditz add

# where am i?
4. ditz status
5. ditz todo

# do work
6. write code
7. ditz close <issue-id>
8. commit
9. goto 3

# finished!
10. ditz release <release-name>
