Bug tracking system

GNU GNATS is an easy to use and flexible bug tracking system.

GNATS allows problem report management and communication with users via various means. GNATS stores all the information about problem reports in its databases and provides tools for querying, editing, and maintenance of the databases.

Thanks to its architecture, GNATS is not bound to a single user interface – it can be used via command line, e-mail, Emacs, or a network daemon, usually used with a Web interface. And users can add their own additional utilities using standard GNU tools.
