Some experiences with Jira:
- SF conversions seems to work fine.
- needs login for every user, even for read.
This is just a configuration issue. The Apache JIRA has public read enabled.
- can do convenient mass edits, for example, I could assign all issues currently assigned to "loewis" to "mloewis".
According to the licensing and pricing page for Jira, it is non-free software. We can't examine, improve, or commission others to do these things to it. Why are we considering a non-free tracker for Python?
The word on the street: "We want the best solution possible without being political." Sounds like a minor BitKeeper incident in the making, but then SourceForge isn't entirely run on open source software, either. -- PaulBoddie
