about freedesktop.org and bugzilla/trac....

we established oscaf.sf.net in februaray to let anyone willing to work
on ontologies join there.
I find bugzilla too complex for the task at hand and I like the tight
integration of SVN + WIKI + Tickets in TRAC.
* endlessly complex loopholes to get an account (sending a gpg key to a
gpg server, creating an ssh key, creating a user account for bugtracker
to create a bug to .... ???)
* everyone has an account, if not it takes 1 minute to make one, only
complexity is remembering your name and password
personally, I am much more in favor of sf.net because its the platform i
also used for aperture and other projects I am member of. I also like
TRAC and SVN as we use it a lot.
Also we basically know how ontology management with SVN+TRAC works based
on the experience in dev.nepomuk.semanticdesktop.org
But I thought since all the others are freedesktop.org and git fans, we
must use that. If the question is up to discussion, I much more favor
we can reuse the oscaf.sf.net project there or make a new one if you
don't like the name, then suggest a better one and sign us up.
Setting this up is piss-easy, as you all probably know from past sf.net
experience. performance may suck from time to time, but so be it, they
do a good job otherwise.
I would not "vote" about this, I would rather like to have an agreement
where everyone understands the problems and personal background and
preferences of all parties involved, and then come to a conclusion that
fits our small group best.
