Track Software Changes

Does anybody have a suggestion for some software to track revision requests
etc for a project. It's just to track requests, status of the request, who
made it, who changed the software etc.

I could design something in house but i suspect there would be some nice
shrink wrap solutions out there.


Thanks,

Dale

do you mean in Visual Studio? or some other IDE?

I thought VS had this built in, but I have never used it, and am curious to see what the response is also.
but state your IDE name please

I use Visual Sourcesafe to track the actual software changes, versions etc.
I'm just looking for a stand-alone app. to allow production staff (the
users) to enter requests for changes to the program. Some kind of simple
database app with customizable fields.

oh, got it.
You will likely have to write one since I looked for that kind of thing a while back with no good results.
The ones I found were large and complex.

I don't know much about this, but I noticed it when I was downloading
Mozilla: http://www.bugzilla.org. Mozilla uses it for bug submissions.

Dale,

Good topic. I have always been curious what other folks use to submit and
track defects / revisions.

The company that I work for uses IBM Rational Software development tools.
The IBM Rational Software development tool that we use to submit and track
defects / revisions is called ClearQuest.

ClearQuest is used to track defects found during the development of software
projects. It can also be expanded to be used as a "Change Control Database",
which tracks not only defects found during development, but all changes to
the product including enhancements, features and upgrades.
ClearQuest is designed to integrate with other IBM Rational Software
development tools, such as ClearCase for code management, Requisite Pro for
requirements management, and Rational Rose for designs and architecture
work.

Since the price of sourcesafe is about to go WAY up, I am switching over to Vault and dragnet for integrated source control and defect tracking.
