comment Is it good to keep the bugfix comments within the code?
In our team we have a post-commit hook that sends an email to the issue tracker. The issue tracker looks for the commit log message for the issue number and adds and entry to that issue.

comment How do you handle bug tracking in a manner friendly to programmers and non-technical staff?
See here for the available options: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_issue-tracking_systems and decide for yourself which will best suit your needs. Also there is this opensource implementation of Stackoverflow: ra-ajax.org/… which is also a nice option

Is this you asking the question for yourself or you really asking for your friend? ;) In any case, send a link to this question to that BIG boss.
