Project description

I’m proud to release version 1.4.12 of Roundup which fixes a number bugs.

If you’re upgrading from an older version of Roundup you must follow the “Software Upgrade” guidelines given in the maintenance documentation.

This release includes:

  • Support IMAP CRAM-MD5, thanks Jochen Maes
  • Proper handling of ‘Create’ permissions in both mail gateway (earlier commit r4405 by Richard), web interface, and xmlrpc. This used to check ‘Edit’ permission previously. See Add regression tests for proper handling of ‘Create’ and ‘Edit’ permissions.
  • Fix handling of non-ascii in realname in the nosy mailer, this used to mangle the email address making it unusable when replying. Thanks to intevation for funding the fix.
  • Fix documentation on user required to run the tests, fixes issue2550618, thanks to Chris aka ‘radioking’
  • Add simple doc about translating customised tracker content
  • Add “flup” setup documentation, thanks Christian Glass
  • Fix “Web Access” permission check to allow serving of static files to Anonymous again
  • Add check for “Web Access” permission in all web templating permission checks
  • Improvements in upgrading documentation, thanks Christian Glass
  • Display ‘today’ in the account user’s timezone, thanks David Wolever
  • Fix file handle leak in some web interfaces with logging turned on, fixes issue1675845
  • Attempt to generate more human-readable addresses in email, fixes issue2550632
  • Allow value to be specified to multilink form element templating, fixes issue2550613, thanks David Wolever
  • Fix thread safety with stdin in roundup-server, fixes issue2550596 (thanks Werner Hunger)

About Roundup

Roundup is a simple-to-use and -install issue-tracking system with command-line, web and e-mail interfaces. It is based on the winning design from Ka-Ping Yee in the Software Carpentry “Track” design competition.

Note: Ping is not responsible for this project. The contact for this project is

Roundup manages a number of issues (with flexible properties such as “description”, “priority”, and so on) and provides the ability to:

  1. submit new issues,
  2. find and edit existing issues, and
  3. discuss issues with other participants.

The system will facilitate communication among the participants by managing discussions and notifying interested parties when issues are edited. One of the major design goals for Roundup that it be simple to get going. Roundup is therefore usable “out of the box” with any python 2.3+ (but not 3+) installation. It doesn’t even need to be “installed” to be operational, though an install script is provided.

It comes with two issue tracker templates (a classic bug/feature tracker and a minimal skeleton) and four database back-ends (anydbm, sqlite, mysql and postgresql).
