Those of you who have talked to me in the last 4 months or so (or hang out in the FGIJ IRC channel) know I've had a little pet project that has been nagging me for a while. I actually started some of the preliminary work for this stuff a year or so ago, but was too busy to do much with it beyond theoretical garbage and test code. The project actually arises from general displeasure I've had over other issue/bug tracking systems out there.

It's late, and I'm entirely too tired to go into the details now (that will come later), but the basic gist of it is I'm working on a distributed/decentralized issue tracking system called "Swarm".

I normally wouldn't make a post concerning this without going into more detail, but I just got the Swarm site online and wanted to point it out. There you'll find links to the source code (which has been online for several weeks now, but would have been easily missed since I never referenced it anywhere :-) as well as how to subscribe to the mailing list.

Anyway... more on this later...
