Which bug tracking and project management tool does Stack Exchange use?

Does it uses any of the existing open source tools or a premium paid one? Or better, have they created a tool themselves to manage this?

I can't speak for everyone; it depends on the group — but we generally use some combination of chat rooms, Trello, our meta sites with tag filters, Gmail, Google Drive, Fogbugz… and a Magic 8-ball.

The definitive source for similar questions is "Which tools and technologies build the Stack Exchange Network?" but no mention's made of any bug-tracking or project management tools.

However, I strongly suspect that they use FogBugz as it's the flagship product from one of the founders first company (Joel).


Community team almost certainly uses zendesk. Us mere mortals don't see what happens internally, of course, but chances are there's some degree of use of that, presumably in conjunction with trello
