    v1 v2  
    1 = Welcome to Trac 0.11.3 =
     1Qt 4 application and UI framework for eCS, OS/2
    3 Trac is a '''minimalistic''' approach to '''web-based''' management of
    4 '''software projects'''. Its goal is to simplify effective tracking and handling of software issues, enhancements and overall progress.
     3Qt is a cross-platform application and UI framework. Using Qt, you can write applications once and deploy them across many desktop and embedded operating systems without rewriting the source code. (See
    6 All aspects of Trac have been designed with the single goal to
    7 '''help developers write great software''' while '''staying out of the way'''
    8 and imposing as little as possible on a team's established process and
    9 culture.
     5A few years ago hired Dmitry A. Kuminov (aka dmik) to port version 3 of the toolkit to the eCS and OS/2 platform. This port is working well and made it possible to port many applications to our platform.

     7Some time ago Qt 4 got introduced and more and more applications are using this version of the toolkit by now. To make sure we can port those applications again, we have to invest some more work into the eCS and OS/2 port, as Qt 4 redid a lot of things from scratch. Dmitry offererd us to work on the port again, our goal would be to hire him for about 5 months, but we cannot do that ourself without help from the community.
    17 "[wiki:TracAdmin trac-admin] ''yourenvdir'' initenv" created
    18 a new Trac environment, containing a default set of wiki pages and some sample
    19 data. This newly created environment also contains
    20 [wiki:TracGuide documentation] to help you get started with your project.
     9We do have some money in the queue but it's not enough yet. If you would like to contribute to this port, you are welcome to buy a sponsoring unit for that at Mensys, 100% of that money will be transferred to
    22 You can use [wiki:TracAdmin trac-admin] to configure
    23 [ Trac] to better fit your project, especially in
    24 regard to ''components'', ''versions'' and ''milestones''.
     11Silvan Scherrer will coordinate the work for this port and Dmitry will do the programming.
     13Some applications that by now use Qt 4: VirtualBox, SMPlayer, Psi, Scribus, LyX and many more.
    27 TracGuide is a good place to start.
