   19 '''Roundup - issue tracking for knowledge workers.
   20 
   21 This is a simple-to-use and -install issue-tracking system with
   22 command-line, web and e-mail interfaces.
   23 
   24 Roundup manages a number of issues (with properties such as
   25 "description", "priority", and so on) and provides the ability to (a) submit
   26 new issues, (b) find and edit existing issues, and (c) discuss issues with
   27 other participants. The system will facilitate communication among the
   28 participants by managing discussions and notifying interested parties when
   29 issues are edited.
   30 
   31 Roundup's structure is that of a cake::
   32 
   33   _________________________________________________________________________
   34  |  E-mail Client   |   Web Browser   |   Detector Scripts   |    Shell    |
   35  |------------------+-----------------+----------------------+-------------|
   36  |   E-mail User    |    Web User     |      Detector        |   Command   |
   37  |-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
   38  |                         Roundup Database Layer                          |
   39  |-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
   40  |                          Hyperdatabase Layer                            |
   41  |-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
   42  |                             Storage Layer                               |
   43   -------------------------------------------------------------------------
   44 
   45 1. The first layer represents the users (chocolate).
   46 2. The second layer is the Roundup interface to the users (vanilla).
   47 3. The third and fourth layers are the internal Roundup database storage
   48    mechanisms (strawberry).
   49 4. The final, lowest layer is the underlying database storage (rum).
   50 
   51 These are implemented in the code in the following manner::
   52 
   53   E-mail User: roundup-mailgw and roundup.mailgw
   54      Web User: cgi-bin/roundup.cgi or roundup-server over
   55                roundup.cgi.client and roundup.cgi.template
   56      Detector: roundup.roundupdb and templates/<template>/detectors
   57       Command: roundup-admin
   58    Roundup DB: roundup.roundupdb
   59      Hyper DB: roundup.hyperdb, roundup.date
   60       Storage: roundup.backends.*
   61 
   62 Additionally, there is a directory of unit tests in "test".
   63 
   64 For more information, see the original overview and specification documents
   65 written by Ka-Ping Yee in the "doc" directory. If nothing else, it has a
   66 much prettier cake :)
