I'd like to see bug tracker activity monitored as well. Bug reports are the way most people get involved into open source projects for the first time. Many commits to a project originate from a bug tracker and were written by someone other than the cvs/git/svn committer. Maybe there are even some nice ways to query bugzilla, flyspray et al.
And, by the way, is there a way to search the forums for things that have already been suggested?
Yes, our original vision for Ohloh included the ability to monitor bug trackers as well as mailing lists. Once we get a handle on source code monitoring, bugs and mail are in our plans.
Forum search is possible, but it proves to be very hard to find. We're working on a site redesign now which will help here.
This page has a forum search box.
You can also just search in the box at the top of any page. It will take you to project search results by default, but from there you can click "Posts" to see forum search results instead.
Is there any timeline for this?
I've come across some corporations which really would like an easy way to address this, and in fact at mozilla.org, a non trivial amount of triage time is spent trying to find the tracker for various extensions/plugins/random applications which each have their own hard to find web sites.
I'd really love to be able to simply visit ohloh and get a link to the bug tracker. Even if the bug tracker isn't searchable.
I understand that at the beginning I'd probably be filling in the links more often than I'd be finding them, but this really doesn't bother me.
It's also not immediately important for me to be able to use ohloh to search the bug tracker, although I recently described to a large entity how such a feature could be useful.
And yes, Mozilla projects are still waiting to see Mercurial support from ohloh, but we're already growing tools to handle Mercurial. We don't have much interest in growing a tool to map the world of software projects to record where their bug trackers live - this is something that I eagerly await from ohloh.
I'd just like to add my support for this idea. Our project has many contributors who submit bug reports and patches on a regular basis, but myself and a couple of others claim their work here on ohloh. Also I'd like to suck up some kudos for my fleeting visits to other projects trackers :D
Yes, having this feature would be great.
Any update on the timeline ? It's been a year since it has been suggested.
I'd just like to add another support for this idea, I can't agree more with "Bug reports are the way most people get involved into open source projects for the first time. " ;-)
Four years gone after the original post, is there any process? I understand the ohloh guys are busy at this time, maybe a "patches welcome" is nice as well ;-)
I checked https://github.com/blackducksw/ohloh_scm but it seems not related to bug trackers, any one know if there is a similar library for bug trackers at this time?
Keep up the great work and thank you all!
