This module provides issue tracking for projects created with the Project module.
It allows users to submit issues (bug reports, feature requests, tasks, etc) and enables teams to track their progress. It provides e-mail notifications to members about updates to items. Similar to many issue tracking systems. You can see it in action at the Drupal.org issue tracker.
Drupal 7 version
There is a D7 port of drupal.org happening *right now* and anyone can help! Read the Drupal.org D7 upgrade community initiative page first, then search for issues tagged with both 'Drupal.org D7' and 'project'. However, the port is still under heavy development, and there's neither an upgrade path from the Drupal 6 version nor a guarantee of upgrades working from the current 7.x-2.x-dev release to future releases. It is not recommended to deploy the D7 version on a production site until the 7.x-2.0 official release is created.
In addition, the "Comment", "File" and "List" core modules must be enabled on your site.
Drupal 6 version
The '6.x-1.x' branch of this module is running on Drupal.org. However, there are still some issues to work out before we create an official 6.x-1.0 release. Production sites are discouraged from upgrading until there's an official release. If you're going to try using the 6.x-1.x-dev version of Project issue tracking you must use the latest official release of Views 6.x-2 (not Views 3).
In addition, both the "Comment" and "Upload" core modules must be enabled on your site.

A few other modules are known to extend the functionality of Project issue tracking:
- Comment alter taxonomy (provides freetagging for project issues using issue comments to alter the tags)
- Project issue file test (a.k.a. "PIFT" -- provides automated testing of patch files attached to issue comments)
