Product Perspective

YakTrack should be a self-contained project. It is the first attempt at an issue-management system by myself, and contains or involves a number of technologies which are new to me (XML, Python, etc.). Ideally, it should work with a variety of configuration management systems and not require any external software or database backends, although the Python subsystem (free software) will be required to operate it.
