Painless Bug Tracking Painless Bug Tracking by Joel Spolsky Wednesday, November 08, 2000 TRS-80 Level-I BASIC could only store two string variables, A$ and B$. Similarly, I was born with only two bug-storing-slots in my brain. Keeping a database of bugs is one of the hallmarks of a good software team. If I can bend your ear a moment, I'd like to explain a pretty painless way to do bug tracking, in the spirit of my previous articles on painless schedules and painless specs. First of all, you need a real database. Let's follow a bug around, for the purpose of illustration, from the moment it's born until someone finally puts it out of its misery. Here's what happened. Mikey the Programmer is hacking away on the new FTP client feature of his groovy Macintosh software. Bad things happen when you don't reuse code, Mikey. Later that week, Jill the Very, Very Good Tester is banging away at the code, rolling her forehead back and forth on the keyboard or some equally cruel test. Jill squints at the list of repro steps.

Chapter 3. Setting Up A Server To use TortoiseSVN (or any other Subversion client), you need a place where your repositories are located. You can either store your repositories locally and access them using the protocol or you can place them on a server and access them with the or protocols. The two server protocols can also be encrypted. You use or svn+ or you can use with SASL. If you are using a public hosting service such as Google Code or your server has already been setup by someone else then there is nothing else you need to do. Move along to Chapter 4, Daily Use Guide. If you don't have a server and you work alone, or if you are just evaluating Subversion and TortoiseSVN in isolation, then local repositories are probably your best choice. If you were thinking about setting up a multi-user repository on a network share, think again. You can always find the latest links on the Subversion website. You can find further How To guides on the TortoiseSVN website.
