Trac Wiki and Tickets

We use Trac for time and ticket management.

See wiki:WikiFormatting and wiki:TracWiki for help on editing wiki content, please note that:

  • This wiki uses CamelCase for pages, don't create all lower case page names or pages with underscores or dashes in them as this breaks automatic links.

See TransitionTrac for Transition Trac information including ticket management and time management.

Servers and Websites

The Transition Network rents Debian virtual servers from the Webarchitects Co-operative, which are powered by Good Energy, these servers run multiple free libre open source software applications.

Services provided: Data, Views & API

NEW: The Transition Network sites are opening themselves to all kinds of other sites, providers and clients to share data and services. See WebServices and wiki:website/about/contentTypes for more.

Git & Release Process

NOTE: We have migrated to Git and the repository is hosted on GitHub.

For information on how to use the Git repository and the process we use for releases to the various servers, please see BoaCodeManagement.


The Transition Technology group works like a free / open source software project, we do most our activity in public, on this wiki and ticketing system. The key meetings are documented on the web project blog.
