Bug database Wars

How should I choose a bug database? Should I base my opinion on how many people have experience using it? Or how long the company that wrote the database is going to survive?

Should I use fogbugz?

Provided you don't have to administer it, yeah, Jira is ok.

The only problem I have with Jira right now is when altering a lot of issues at once, it spews email at everyone.

What about Trac?

Trac is my favorite wiki/bug tracker/source control browser of all time.

Partly because it's so minimalist (rather like this forum) and partly because it does all three very well.

Easily extensible with a little bit of python scripting too.

mantis is the best I've seen. Really clean and simple, installs in about 5 mins, sweet UI.

I'm a trac user.  It's about right for the job.

What kind of extensions did you add to it Colm?

Gantt chart (though never used it), and backlinks (shows what pages link to a particular wiki page).

I planned to do one to create a virtual market for issues/features but never got around to it.

Roll your own. Everybody else seems to do so.
