Ditz is a simple, light-weight distributed issue tracker designed to work with distributed version control systems like darcs and git. Ditz maintains an issue database directory on disk, with files written in a line-based and human- editable format. This directory is kept under version control alongside project code. Changes in issue state is handled by version control like code change: included as part of a commit, merged with changes from other developers, conflict-resolved in the standard manner, etc.

Ditz provides a simple, console-based interface for creating and updating the issue database files, and some rudimentary HTML generation capabilities for producing world-readable status pages. It offers no central public method of bug submission.
