The aim of the dist-bugs project is to investigate and develop distributed bug tracking systems. We bring together people interested in breaking bugs out of their centralised data silos.
We want it to be possible to manipulate bug reports offline, just as DVCS allows committing to code while offline. We want forks of a project to automatically also fork -- and share back -- their bugs. We want bugs information to be shared scross the bug trackers of all the linux distributions. We want bug reports that can be passed around from one project to another (ie, from a distribution to upstream). And we're sick of needing to register at each new bug tracking system for each new project.
