CVSTrac implements a low-ceremony Web-based bug and patch-set tracking system for use with CVS. Features include automatic changelog generation, repository change history browsing, user-defined bug database queries, Wiki pages, and Web-based administration of the CVSROOT/passwd file. CVSTrac operates either as CGI or as its own Web server. It automatically generates a patch-set log from CVS check-in comments, and includes a built-in repository browser. It is simple to setup and has minimal memory, disk and CPU requirements, so it runs effectively on old hardware. Access permissions are separately configurable for each user, and anonymous users are allowed. Since the program uses a built-in SQL database engine (SQLite), no external RDBMS is required.
