Top 10 signs you need a new defect tracker
What's the death rattle of your current bug tracker? The dirge of the old defect tracker?
Since many of the newer tracking products far outpace the legacy systems of the 90s, I'm writing a brief article on the top 10 signs that you need a new defect tracker. So let's hear it, while staying brand agnostic, what are your gripes | nominations for the list?
Here are a few candidates so far...
- Limited (or no) Web interface
- Picklists are getting too long
- Modification requires more engineering hours than our own products
- Someone switched all records to ‘wont fix’ and we can’t tell who did it.
- Queries take minutes, more minutes
- Someone left code checked out and can't remember why...

Re: Top 10 signs you need a new defect tracker
You list is good for us. Here are two more.
1. How about support for the Macintosh
2. Engineers want to access from UNIX command line
They seem opposite, but we must be multi-platform
