I guess Jesse should be more updated about the timeline of the 2.0
release.  We're currently using the development version of RT2 locally
(the current CVS version), and it actually works quite well - so I would
encourage any body who have some extra time and patience, and who doesn't
need ACLs that desperately to do the same :)

Well, yes and no ... we're basically using Bugzilla for bug tracking at
the moment.  We've managed to put up some kind of linking between Bugzilla
and RT2 that works well here.  It's at least in my long-term plans to make
some "add-ons" to RT to make it better for handling bugs.

We have made a client that has a built-in bug submitting tool that
reports to RT.  This tool includes the callstack in the bug report, and
I've just hacked together some tool that checks for equal callstacks and
link together those with equal call stacks.  Later a support worker
transfers the most relevant data (through one mouse click) and links up
the request ticket with a new bug ticket in Bugzilla.

Indeed :)
