BugKick - Free, open, and simple bug tracking.

Who and Why

The engineers behind Musopen have spent years trying every bug tracking, to do list, and project management site in existence. Some are great but expensive, others haven't changed in years, most are too complex and are re-hashes of the same product.

We hate reinventing the wheel, but we are also very unhappy with the current state of bug tracking apps. So we began work on BugKick.com - a very simple web-app to handle 90% of most users's task/project management and bug tracking needs. More importantly, being visual people, we have a slightly different take than what you see today which we think you will enjoy.

The idea for this project began after using BugKick for a while just for ourselves. Slowly friends of ours began asking to have an account, then friends of friends, and so on. Soon we realized we might have something others would appreciate. So we're here to ask for your help to finish and release the project as a free hosted and open-source project.

What does Free mean
We're very proud of the tool we've built and want everyone to be able to use it. Since free might not be sustainable depending on how many users we get, to help cover the costs of hosting we will offer a $9 a month plan with a few extra bells and whistles (custom branding etc.), but otherwise we will always offer an unlimited free plan: unlimited users, unlimited tickets, as well as the open-source code so anyone can always host it themselves.

The Plan
We want just 1 to 2 months to tighten up and polish the site for an initial beta release just to our donors. It needs some more functionality, design tweaks, and a security and bug sweep. After feedback from our donors, and seeing what work remains, we will open the site up to the public and release the code (we're assuming 1-3 months post a beta). 

Thanks for reading and your support.
