GitHub for Public Bug Tracker

NOTE: THIS IS NOT A PROGRAM THAT YOU NEED TO DOWNLOAD

In an attempt to help clean up, centralize and overall revamp the way our community reports issues in preparation for bigger things (Steam Build testing, etc.), I've created a GitHub 'Issue Tracker' for the project.

Why did I do this?

  1. Git is the most popular way of distributing and handling projects, in some ways it's better than SVN. In this case we'll probably upload some specific files for users to check out (.cfgs, .dlls, etc.) in a centralized location.
  2. If you created an account on GitHub for other things (such as submitting issues on Valve's page), you can start submitting issues right away in our repo (unlike Mantis or BugZilla where you essentially have to make individual accounts for each site.
  3. It's easy for the developers to browse through quickly
  4. It's pretty simple to use.
  5. Valve uses it.
  6. We will definitely use this when we start to send out Steam keys to test out NMRiH in closed Steam beta, your chances of getting early access to the Steam Build increase by quite a lot if you happen to have a preexisting GitHub account AND have already submitted some tickets on our repo
  7. It's pretty

Here's a link to our Organization

And here's a link to our bug repository (complete with a readme and directions)

And here's the link to the actual issue page if you're lazy

At best, if this succeeds we'll be able to easily monitor and track issues that you guys submitted; at worst I'll be the only one who'll be using it at all :P

Give this a shot, we'll greatly appreciate it!

So basically like MantisBT but with color codes under a category (eg. green -nVidia) but with mantisBT it show different colors of issues that are assigned and fixed making it easier to identify them in my opinion, although people will still post in this subforum especially those who just register. Can zip files containing dump files be uploaded?

I want to download this pong game: https://github.com/essbuh/pong/tree/master/pong

No this is public, and for the public to use

When the Steam build's open for closed testing, ideally the alpha testers and developers switch over to this, and the public too (hint: get a github account and start reporting issues properly)

FYI...the reason my company decided not to use GitHub for issue tracking (after a hefty trial period of 3 months and tons of contribution/coordination/failings) was the lack of a system to sort issues by priority and lack of project management features. The milestones are a weak excuse for this.

It would be nice if we could sort by a priority, or even sort by a custom list of labels. Combine that with the ability to add estimates, and see summaries of the time needed for milestones and it would be a half decent tool for managing issues.

Sure you could say that you should probably bundle your issues into groups that are then inserted into another project management software but having multiple systems is clunky.
