There are many defect tracking and process automation systems that are out there. One issue could potentially be integrating with your version control system (VCS). What are you using for your source code management.

ClearCase integrates nicely ClearQuest and RTC comes with its own (robust) workflow automation tool.

Trac is very popular and there are lots more.

We using CVS & svn both. Guess redmine wont suffice the qualities bugzilla have for defect tracking.

what are your views?

Thats a subjective question that can't be answered. It really depends on your needs and what you want to accomplish, basically your requirements.

Obviously bugzilla isn't working for you or you wouldn't be looking at other options. So I recommend this, write down your requirements and see what tool best meets those needs, then you will have the "best" tool for your group.

Thanks Joe.

My requirement is kinda project management & sending releases directly from bug id mapping instead of referring any other tool like we use CCR(change control manager).
