New Tools for AppFuse Project: MarkMail and FishEye/Crucible

We've recently added some some new features to the AppFuse project. The first feature is the good folks at Mark Logic (primarily Jason Hunter) has setup a kick-ass mailing list archive for us at

This is an easily searchable set of archives and goes all the way back to when our mailing list started in March 2004. In the future, they hope to provide RSS/Atom feeds and allow posting (like Nabble does). I've added a link to these archives to the mailing list page. To learn more about MarkMail, please see Jason's announcement of the service @ Apache.

The second feature is we've installed FishEye and Crucible (a code review tool) on AppFuse's server at Contegix. We've used FishEye in the past, but now we have it on our own server.

FishEye for AppFuse

Thanks to Mark Logic and Atlassian for supporting the AppFuse project.

Excellent that you're using Crucible. You may have installed it a day early though as we just released 1.2 which has some handy features for OS projects. Notably anonymous access to reviews, user groups, default reviewer sets, self signup, setup multiple projects (inc. jira style project keys), and the ability to simplify the workflow a bit (i.e. disable the moderator role). Another notable improvement (and reason to upgrade) is an improved FishEye plugin for JIRA that includes reviews is imminent and requires Crucible 1.2.

A vastly improved line counting strategy was on the cards too, but unfortunately wasn't quite ready for prime time in time. When that comes out you'll definitely want to get the contegix boys to upgrade again (lucky it is easy ;) )
