Dear Dirk,

The Community is very interested in sharing our 
experiences around qa and release processes and tools.

(As an IBM consultant I would at work recommend Rational Build Forge, 
but let's leave that for now:) )

The Community has written a tool called QATrack, which a month back 
reached version 2.0. It covers these areas:

Build management
IssueZilla integration
RSS Feed
Authentication against main site (CollabNet)

The goal is not the technology, it's the information. QATrack is now a 
build information portal, it could be release portal, combining 
different systems to provide a single point of information (and be a 
record backwards in time).

You can look at the tool here (all info is readable)

To get the most out of the read-only experience (e.g set gui language) 
register for an acocunt here:

What different kinds of technologies do you use to keep track of builds 
today? Mailing lists/private emails? Wiki pages or Bugzilla for tracking?

Thank you,

Best Regards
Per Eriksson
