Re: [scrumdevelopment] What is FogBugz and is it Agile-friendly?I’ve worked with two companies who have used FogBugz. It’s a great bug tracker; very well designed, and very easy to log bugs. However, in both companies:
- They very quickly accumulated an enormous backlog of bugs
- They kept creating new bugs and not worrying about this because it was so easy to keep track of them.
Obviously if you have software being used by customers, you should keep track of the issues they find. But a key component of success with Scrum is ensuring that whatever Product Backlog Items are accepted at the end of the Sprint are bug-free. Sure, log bugs you’ve found in old features. Logging any bugs on new features is a slippery quality slope.

their version of common sense syncs up happily with ours?
Can anyone here offer an educated opinion on whether FogBugz is
