artifacts project is a is a text based project management and artifact (bugs, features etc), tracking suite.

It is also the format specification which allows developers and users to read, understand and even modify existing artifacts without needing any tools installed. artifacts is aimed primarily at open source based projects for which time allocation and deadlines are mostly meaningless.

The artifacts themselves and the format they use are designed to exist inside a projects repository or even to be shipped within a tarball release at packaging time. This allows end users or remote developers instant access to changelogs, todo lists and all outstanding bugs.

Developers need not go online or even leave the comfort of the projects directory. artifacts can be updated alongside the code, enabling a developer to create a single patch which not only accomplishes development goals but also, for example, marks a bug as fixed and closed.

artifacts is the project management tool I use for all my tracking needs, for all my projects on and off this site.

Here are some key features of "artifacts":

· artifact dependancies
· time/deadline independant tasks or milestones
· easily 'repositorised' and human readable text based format
· no internet required
· no explicit artifact types, all user definable (ie bugs,features,milestone,packaging etc)
· artifacts must be easy to locate and edit, even by filtering those assigned to just me, with no software dependancies
· the ability to quickly and easily generate TODO (and others) lists in plain text, or as RSS feeds on the projects home page
· easily "plugged in" to the web allowing online users to add new bug notes directly into the repository
