Apache Bloodhound is an open source web-based project management and bug tracking system. The program is built on top of Trac.[3] It is developed and maintained by volunteers at the Apache Software Foundation.

The project was initially submitted to the Apache Incubator by WANdisco[4] after integration with an issue tracker was the most requested feature for uberSVN.[5] Bloodhound graduated from the incubator on 2013-03-20 and became an Apache Top Level Project.[6][7][8][9]

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:[10] management of multiple projects,[11][12] 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,[13] providing full text search and search navigation by facets and incorporate many plugins optional in Trac out of the box.
