NAME

Git::IssueManager - Module for managing issues in a git branch within your repository

VERSION

version 0.1

DESCRIPTION

Git::IssueManager is a Perl Module for using git as an issue store creating a distributed issue management system. It uses the Git::LowLevel Module to store issues in a issue branch using trees and blobs.

EXAMPLE

  use Git::IssueManager;

  my $manager     = Git::IssueManager->new(repository=>Git::LowLevel->new(git_dir=> "."));
  if (!$manager->ready)
  {
    print("IssueManager not initialized yet. Please call \"init\" command to do so.");
    exit(-1);
  }

  my @issues=$manager->list();

  for my $i (@issues)
  {
    print $i->subject . "\n";
  }

MOTIVATION

Issue management is an essential part in modern software engineering. In most cases tools like jira or github are used for this task. The central nature of these tools is a large disadvantage if you are often on the road. Furthermore if you are using git for version control you have everything available for distributed issue management.

Advantages:

save your issues within your project
manage issues on the road, without internet access
write your own scripts for issue management

Disadvantages:

no easy way to let users add issues without pull request yet
not all functions implemented yet

FEATURES

add issues
list issues
assign workers to an issue
start and close issues
delete issues
