Dephecto will be a web-accessible issue tracking system implemented in Ruby on Rails, licensed under the GNU General Public License. In order to define the features of Dephecto, a bug tracking system is being used to drive the definition and development of the product. This is referred to as bug-driven development, and is fairly common in open source projects.
If you are familiar with Ruby on Rails and would like to get involved with this project, by all means, contact me. There is a lot to do and I am just getting started in learning both the Ruby language and the Rails framework.
In case you are wondering, the name refers to defect. Adding an 'o' on the end makes for an amusing name, but defecto is the Spanish word for defect, so the spelling is a little different to set it apart from the many web pages written in Spanish which refer to defects.
