Dear All,

I have been in discussion with Stefano over the last couple of days, about
building a Bug Tracking system for Cocoon, in Cocoon.

After going over various ways of handling this, we decided that the only
technique that really makes any sense, is to store bugs in an SQL Database.

I am offering to build the project, but the first problem is that I have never
used SQL before .... consequentially, it will probably take me longer to
complete this than almost anyone else on this list ... ;-)

OK, this is what I plan to do.

1. In collaboration with you lot, work out what it is we want the bug tracking
system to be. What fields are stored, using what DTD, providing what
functionality etc. I have ripped off the input forms for both the Mozilla and
Apache bug systems and will use these as the starting point for discussion. 

2. Prototype the system using something quick (for me) like FileMaker Pro,
running on one of my servers. With the aim that a useable system will be up and
running (and doing it's job) asap.

3. in the meantime, learn SQL etc. and get on with the Cocoon version.

I'll be working on this part-time.

My desired outcome includes the following:

- A solid bug tracking system that meets our needs.
- An example of how to handle HTML Form submission and DB writing within Cocoon
- A practical demonstration of the power of Cocoon
- A vast improvement in my Java skills .....
- A framework for building my own remote/dynamically editable sites

So, any comments so far?

Is there anybody out there about to say "I got one of those, I can set it up in
10 minutes!"?

I will no-doubt be asking lots of basic question, please have patience ...

regards Jeremy
