(apologies if you receive multiple copies of this)


We are currently about 95% done with a transition over to our new Redmine tracking system, to the point where we feel comfortable in going ahead with opening it to developers:


All edits to bugzilla reports on our old system (http://bugzilla.open-bio.org/) are now disabled and the system is now read-only.  Any new bugs and comments to old ones should be reported on the new Redmine server.

For current Bugzilla users, we have migrated login IDs to Redmine (this is normally an email address), but we have reset user passwords for security reasons.  There are two ways to access your account:

1) When logging in (http://redmine.open-bio.org/login), click on the 'Lost password' link.  You will be prompted for your email address (this should be the same as your bugzilla login).  An new email will be sent out containing directions for resetting your password and logging in.

2) It is possible the above may be automatically detected as spam.  If the above doesn't work or the reset email isn't received within a day, contact support at helpdesk.open-bio.org to receive your new password.

Also, note that Redmine has a different syntax for those who want to add links to their reports; see http://www.redmine.org/projects/redmine/wiki/RedmineTextFormatting.

Let us know if you have any questions.
