RFC: Bug-tracker functionality inside Kiwi TCMS #699
There's an idea for Kiwi TCMS to be able to keep track of reported bugs directly inside the system. The functionality will be minimal, similar to what GitHub Issues provides. This will be useful to small teams who do no need tons of functionality (sort of like JIRA) or do not want to deploy a separate system for bug-tracking.

Use the comments below to describe the features and behavior you imagine this bug-tracker to have.
There are dozens of small free and even open-source bug trackers (see MantisBT for example). Implementation of your own wheel seems like a big overhead with extra maintenance afterwards. Also I assume that target audience of Kiwi is not the small team of 5 people who just started project\startup yesterday, so they don't have any tools and processes in place (?). I believe, if the team is mature to introduce test management, they should already have bug tracking set up and running. Having said that, it seems much more useful to support more of existing bug trackers to be able to integrate with Kiwi, instead of writing your own.
However, if you want Kiwi to go beyond TCMS in general, you may consider making some kind if plugins\extensions (in separated repos, with separated codebase), and here some basic bug tracker functionality could be an okay-idea for extension. So if one wants to install it, one can go to, lets say, admin panel - plugins - bug tracker - activate - and get it automagically.
