Summary0012544: [REQUEST] Augmentations to MantisBT
DescriptionPlease read:


For example, on github there is a list of MantisBT repositories that have
plugins built by the MantisBT users. Address is:

Some plugins that immediately caught my interest:

to users on a global or per-project basis, and allow users to dismiss
individual messages." Very nice way to communicate with Scribus bug
reporters for example asking them: "Have you read <link>How to file a bug
report</link> on the wiki before filing ?"

"New shiny look for Mantis. Skins, custom company Logo, custom CSS and
This is by far the most 'blingy' request of them all. I think it would be
refreshing to add a more modern look to mantis, something more inviting.

Also, looking at the websvn, it looks like there was a command line tool that allowed folks to report bugs from the command line.
