Researching a decent bugtracking system Mantis vs RedMine



  • For our small business and team, I am researching a decent bugtracking system. I have narrowed it down to two that seem to fit our needs (easy to set up, easy to post bugs for non-programmers, SVN integration): Mantis and Redmine. Mantis kind of has my vote because it is PHP/MySQL and I know that best, see installing and administering will be easier. However, if I search "Mantis or RedMine" in Google, I only find people who are migrating to RedMine. What are your experiences with Mantis / RedMine? Is it worth the effort of trying to get RedMine to work (add repositories, install Ruby, etc) on our production server? How easy does the SVN integration compare (I found posts on the internet saying the RedMine integration "just works" and I have to setup/program the Mantis integration)?



  • Redmine is fantastic. Easy to use, with a very nice SVN viewer. There are a lot of nice plugins for it too. It doesn't need a programmer to setup or maintain.
