Dear Wiki user,

The "BloodhoundProposal" page has been changed by HyrumWright:

Comment:
Link to some reception by the Trac community

  
  The [[http://trac.edgewall.org/|Trac project]] is a BSD-licensed collaboration tool used
to assist in software development.  It has a wide user base, a pluggable infrastructure, and
is generally considered stable.
  
- By it's own recognition, however, the development community surrounding Trac has largely
dissipated, with little mailing list traffic, and very few commits to the source code repository
(see [2]).  Private efforts to engage the existing developers in implementing features have
been negatively received.  At the same time, other individuals and companies, such as [[http://www.wandisco.com|WANdisco]],
have expressed interest in helping continue to develop Trac.  These entities would prefer
this effort to be at a vendor-neutral location, with the clear process for intellectual property
management that comes from the Foundation.  As such, the Apache Software Foundation feels
like the best fit for this new project based on Trac.

+ Discussion about this proposal on the Trac developers' mailing list has been largely ambivalent
(see [[http://groups.google.com/group/trac-dev/browse_thread/thread/14268355c6e1d494|this
thread]]).  Trac has already [[http://trac.edgewall.org/wiki/BloodHound|included]] a potential
Bloodhound project on the list of its derivatives.
