DjTracker
Introduction:

    DjTracker is meant to be an issue tracker built with Python and Django. I hadn't personally seen an active one that
    suited my needs, so I set out to build this. Trac is great and all, but it's a jack of all trades and not a master of
    issue tracking. Below is the proposed feature list of DjTracker with their completion status. Everything marked as
    complete is 'done' at this time. This doesn't mean it won't change in the feature as new needs arise, but they're
    functional at this point.

    *NOTE*
    Extensive testing at this time has not been completed. In fact, a tests.py doesn't even exist yet. That'll come
    soon enough though.

Project Creation:

    Every issue in DjTracker is attached to a corresponding Project. Each project is built of the following parts:
        Components (complete):
            Components are separate pieces of the overall beast that makes up a project. For instance, you may have a
            cart component in your ecommerce site.

        Versions (complete):
            Track multiple versions of your application by creating different version instance of your project. This way
            you can track issues against the latest version, while you also can continue to supporte users using legacy
            versions of your software.

        Milestones (complete):
            This is used to help you keep track of issues as you're working towards a major milestone in the product
            development. This'll allow you to view all issues still open before you reach the milestone completion
            point.

        Permissions (90% complete):
            DjTracker supports a permission scheme involving row level permissions. There are 3 levels of permissions:

                View:
                    Allow users to simply view an issue. This is the base permission, and is required for most all other
                    permissions. You can't edit what you can't see.

                Modify:
                    Users with modification permissions can change the status of an issue, and otherwise adjust the
                    issue anyway they see fit.

                Comment:
                    This'll be the permission that you give to most users. This will give them the ability to create an
                    issue, and comment on the issue. They will not be able to modify the issue though.

            These permissions break down into three methods so that you can give groups, individual users, or anonymous

Issue Creation (90% complete):

    Issues are attached to projects via foreign keys. You can comment on issues, change their status, and the like
    assuming you have proper permissions. You can also "watch" an issue if you're an authenticated user. This means that
    you'll receive email updates on any comments to an issue. In the future you'll get notified on status changes, and
    other modifications of the issue as well.

User Profiles (80% complete):

    Currently I don't see an excessively large need for these, but that could change depending on use cases. As a result
    I went ahead and built a user profile module just in case. It's currently very limited, but you can view your
    profile (and the profile of others) to see what issues they have assigned to them. 

Installation:

    Currently you can clone the github repository for your installation needs. Just clone it, and then run "python
    setup.py build; python setup install". This will install it to your python path. You can then enter the example app
    path that's included with your clone, and run the following "python manage.py syncdb; python manage runserver" to
    get up and running. If you wish to other plug the application into your setup you can do the following:

        Dependencies:
            django-registration

        Settings:
            There's only one setting addition you'll need:
                ISSUE_ADDRESS = "user@example.com"

            This is the address issue updates will be sent from.

        URLs:
            You'll need the following URL pattern:
                (r'', include('djtracker.urls')),

            Feel free to change the path to suit your needs. Keep in mind it's only been tested at a root path thus far.
            It should work fine at other paths though.
