Jesse Vincent announced that Best Practical has released the source for rt.cpan.org. All the general magic that Jesse &. co. use to make the de facto bug tracking system for the CPAN is now available from BestPractical's Subversion site.
Jesse says "If you've been hankering for a new feature in rt.cpan.org, now's the time to start sending patches. After 3 good patches, we'll grant you a commit bit to the rt.cpan.org extensions." Kudos to Jesse for opening things up and helping spread the workload of maintaining this crucial tool.
