It interests me. They use a wiki as part of the solution. 21:42 < hvxgr> It's thrown me off a bit though, in that now for some reason (ie my interest in perl), now I want to look at foswiki. But I will keep reviewing other issue management tools. 21:42 < srevilak> ah, you're JAPH :) 21:42 < hvxgr> I thing 'trac' probably would be fine. 21:43 < hvxgr> (think) 21:44 < srevilak> shall we motion to adjourn? 21:44 < hvxgr> right "just another perl hacker".
