Bug tracking system

phpBugTracker is an attempt to copy the functionality of Bugzilla while providing a codebase that, by using templates and a database abstraction layer, is independent of the database and presentation layers. Current features include bug history (changes over its lifetime), the ability to restrict projects to certain groups of users, the option to store passwords encrypted in the database, HTML templates for changing the look of the interface, flexible bug search capabilities, localization (status messages in your native language), file attachments for bugs, anonymous browsing of bugs, links to a cvs web interface from bug comments, and bug dependencies.
