We’re approaching the end of this phase of the poker game project. The client has started reporting lots of little things that don’t quite work how he’d like them to. Some are bugs, most are feature requests, either way there’s suddenly more of them than I’m comfortable managing with lists on paper and email trails. I decided that I needed a proper way to track these things.

I looked at Bugzilla but it looked like I had to invest thinking time in it; I looked at FogBUGZ and it didn’t. I bought FogBUGZ early in the week and it installed nicely and so far ‘just works’. Already it’s helping to manage the open issues and allows me to prioritise them and keep track of what I’ve done to try and deal with them.

Well worth having, should have done it ages ago.
