Trac is an open source, minimalist and web-based project management and bug-tracking tool, inspired by CVSTrac. It is developed and maintained by Edgewall Software. Trac should not be confused with Track+, another web-based and open-source project-management tool.

Trac allows hyperlinking information between a computer bug database, revision control and wiki content. It also serves as a sophisticated web interface to the Subversion version control system. In the current version, the web front end presentation of Trac is handled by the ClearSilver template system. Newer versions, starting with 0.11, will use an in-house template system called Genshi, although compatibility with plugins using ClearSilver will remain for several versions.[1]

Trac is written in the Python programming language. Until mid-2005, it was available under the GNU GPL; since version 0.9, it has been released under a modified BSD license.[2] Both are free software licenses.

Among the many users of Trac is NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, which reports that it uses this tool to manage various deep space and near space projects.
