Web-based bug tracking system

'Bug-A-Boo' is a bug reporting and tracking system that runs on any Web server that supports CGI. It can handle any number of projects, users, and bug classifications, and is really flexible in their setup. It features fast fulltext search, query storage, themes, and bug watches. It uses the tdbengine as a database backend.
