comment Distributed Issue Tracking
I expect the field changes to be part of the header of a comment, and not change the existing fields. When an issue is parsed, the newer changes will overwrite the older ones, so the reporting will handle up-to-date meta data, but the recording just puts it all in sequence, like telling a story in chronological order.

I think that the integration is good, but requires connectivity. I like the idea of working on several things, one after the other offline, then uploading it all together. Also, I like the idea that the issue tracker is easily extensible, so individuals could have plugins just for themselves, like specialised reporting, that is not shared with the group whom it might be irrelevant for. This is made easier, if the issue tracking software can run locally in the user's computer.

Tight integration with the VCS, would allow the issue tracker to be easily kept up-to-date. If I code something whilst offline, I can have the integrated issue tracker updated - perhaps closing an issue - and later when I am connected again, I push all the changes to the code, and issues together. Do you think this is realistic/problematic/useful?

I imagine for small projects/consultancy work it would be very useful to be able to add issue tracking to the project in a distributed way. It then becomes part of the project archive automatically, and also makes it easy to have some form of issue tracking in place, without managing it as a separate entity. Do you see this as a potential benefit?

Do other people use issue tracking before there is a repo to share code - or before the repo is used to track code?

I don't think merge conflicts will be a big issue, as each new entry in an issue will be accompanied by a timestamp, so merge conflicts should be easily resolved (automatically by the program) by using these time stamps. I don't expect existing content to be changed much. Do you think this is realistic?

I imagine the distributed issue tracking to work as a server too, in the same way as git. I would expect developers to use it, with their local (potentially offline sometimes) setup, and other people to use it from the central server only. Do you think that mitigates some of your concerns?

Have you tried to contact the author - could potentially add a copyright notice for you.

@AaronMcIver thanks. So I might expect more questions about making an app work on various platforms/devices for example? Do you have any good resources (besides wikipedia) that go over this broadly?

Yes, I am aware of Stack Overflow. Thanks. That's great... however, I would really like some more general information.

comment Distributed Issue Tracking
@WyattBarnett it is hard to speculate how people would react to a well formed tool. Perhaps they would be more likely to submit issues if it were possible to do offline, and without connection/explicitly logging in. Perhaps people who submit issues online would end up delaying their postings if it was available offline. My intuition, is that if it is made extremely simple to push, people will do it frequently, because if they have created an issue, they will want the world to see it.
