Tools and Resources for CFers, Part 5: Bug/Defect Tracking Tools
Note: This blog post is from 2008. Some content may be outdated--though not necessarily. Same with links and subsequent comments from myself or others. Corrections are welcome, in the comments. And I may revise the content as necessary.I wanted to offer a quick second posting today of the next in my series of blogging categories from my list of over 700 tools and resources of interest to CFers, broken into more than 100 categories. To see the list of all categories, see Part 1 of this series.
Returning to the tools section, and continuing in alphabetical order, the next category is Bug/Defect Tracking Tools.

This tools/resources list is a perpetual work in progress. I definitely welcome additions or corrections to it. If you have any to offer, you can leave them here as a comment on this blog entry and I'll move them to the list on my site.
BTW, before you offer an update here, please do check the category on the real list. I won't be coming back here to update these blog entries to sync them if I add new items to the real list.
About this series
This entry is part of an ongoing series, sharing each of the 100+ categories and the tools and resources I (and others) have identified. They're designed to answer the questions we hear, like , "does anyone know of tools or resources to help with ...?"
Someone may ask why I'm blogging each of these categories, when they're available online anyway. It's just that, through aggregation and feeds, blogs present a way to reach a wider (and new) audience who may not otherwise come across the list of tools and resources. This also widens the pool of eyes for possible updates to the list. I want it to be as accurate and up to date as possible. I may in the future offer an RSS feed of any updates made to the list.
Otherwise, I hope people will get great value out of the lists, here or on the tools and resources page.

Anyone old enough to remember the old Natural Light beer commercials from the 70's, that had the catch phrase: "you can call me Ray, or you can call me Jay..."? :-) You can see it at http://www.youtube.c...
That said, I can understand someone in a role of a supporter (or even employee) finding all places where their favored product is mentioned to add more, or to mention where it isn't and perhaps it should be (as was in this case).
Plus, in this case at least, he didn't say it was good, just that it was simple. :-) So I'll cut him more slack.
Just to be clear, though, when you say you are surprised to see him commenting "on an a post that is nearly a year old", I'll assume you're not referring to this one, which is just a month old. Maybe you meant one of the others you've seen him write on. No worries.

But I have changed the URL in the place where the list of bug tracking solutions above (and hundreds of categories like it) is updated and maintained permanently (by me). Here's the big tracking link:
