Issues are a great way to keep track of tasks, enhancements, and bugs for your projects. They’re kind of like email—except they can be shared and discussed with the rest of your team. Most software projects have a bug tracker of some kind. Gitopia’s tracker is called Issues and has its own section in every repository.

A typical issue on Gitopia contains:

  • A title and description describe what the issue is all about.
  • Color-coded labels help you categorize and filter your issues.
  • One Assignee is responsible for working on the issue at any given time.
  • Comments allow anyone with access to the repository to provide feedback.
