Roundup has gone through two incarnations. The most recent is based on Ping's design submitted to the Software Carpentry Open Source Design Competition. It's being developed by Richard Jones, not Ping. The blurb for it is:
Roundup is a simple-to-use and -install issue-tracking system with command-line, web and e-mail interfaces. It has an extensive list of features.
The first version of Roundup, developed by Ping, was described as:
Roundup is an issue-tracking system with a reasonably decent user interface (i'm sorry, but i just don't like any of the other ones i've seen) and a very simple innovation in e-mail management called the nosy list which has worked very nicely in practice.
Roundup is written in Python.
This project has the following developers:
New HTML Parser: The long-awaited libxml2 based HTML parser code is live. It needs further work but already handles most markup better than the original parser.
