Apache Bloodhound is an open source web-based project management and bug tracking system. The program is built on top of Trac.[2] It is developed and maintained by volunteers at the Apache Software Foundation.

The project was initially submitted to the Apache Incubator by WANdisco[3] after integration with an issue tracker was the most requested feature for uberSVN.[4] Bloodhound graduated from the incubator on 2013-03-20 and became an Apache Top Level Project.[5][6][7][8]

Bloodhound is written in the Python programming language and released under the Apache Software License.[citation needed]


The software inherits features from Trac and initially set out to resolve three long-standing requests with Trac:[9] management of multiple projects,[10][11] ease of installation,[citation needed] ease of use[citation needed] and also supports embedding of Google gadgets.

In addition Bloodhound has integrated the Python library Whoosh in version 0.5,[12] providing full text search and search navigation by facets and incorporate many plugins optional in Trac out of the box.
