Subject Re: Bug tracking -- a solution (was Re: Any progress on the bug trackingsystem?)
Date Wed, 19 Jul 2000 01:12:57 GMT
So did someone step up willing to host a bugzilla
instance?

If no one has, I have a machine colo'd in Minneapolis
that has a 4GB travan drive and a few hours I could
set aside to setting bugz up, fixing the security
holes and managing a backup scheme. Does everyone want
this? If so, I will do it.

Thanks Jon, Craig and Costin, etc.
