bug fix release. If you are upgrading from a release earlier than

If you're upgrading from an older version of Roundup you *must* follow
the "Software Upgrade" guidelines given in the maintenance documentation.
Roundup requires python 2.7 or later (but not 3+) for correct operation.
To give Roundup a try, just download (see below), unpack and run::
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.

project is [hidden email].
Roundup manages a number of issues (with flexible properties such as
"description", "priority", and so on) and provides the ability to:
(a) submit new issues,
(b) find and edit existing issues, and
(c) 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 2.7+ (but not 3+)
installation. It doesn't even need to be "installed" to be operational,
though an install script is provided.
It comes with five issue tracker templates
* a classic bug/feature tracker
* a minimal skeleton;
* a more extensive devel tracker for bug/features etc.
* a responsive version of the devel tracker
* a jinja2 based template based on devel
and can use any of four database back-ends (anydbm, sqlite, mysql and
