Roundup - Issue Tracking System

Roundup is a simple-to-use and and powerful issue-tracking system with command-line, web and e-mail interfaces. Roundup is being used for bug tracking and TODO list management, issue management, customer help desk support, and sales lead tracking.

This appliance includes all the standard features in TurnKey Core, and on top of that:

  • Roundup configurations:

    • Installed via pip into a python virtual env, within it's own user account. See /var/www for links to file paths.

    • Roundup served via Apache mod_python.

    • Disabled registration confirmation via email (requires mail server).

    • Includes Xapian full text indexer (recommended for large issue DB).

    • Includes full timezone support and documentation.

      Security note: Updates to Roundup may require supervision so they ARE NOT configured to install automatically. See Roundup documentation for upgrading. Please note specific user account and location of virtual env when updating.

  • SSL support out of the box.

  • Postfix MTA (bound to localhost) to allow sending of email (e.g., password recovery).

  • Webmin modules for configuring Apache2, MySQL and Postfix.
