Select Projects from the top left corner of the website. You will see projects that you are a member of, as well as those that are public.

Although there is not a clear division in the software code between Appion and Leginon, we use these as project names to be consistent with how the products are presented to the rest of the world.
The single svn repository holding the code for both products is available from both Redmine projects.

Available Projects:
  • Appion
    • loosely everything related to image processing
  • Leginon
    • loosely everything that has to do with image capture

4 Add a new issue

  • Go to the project that you want to add the issue under. Select the New issue tab.
  • Select a Tracker: Bug, Feature, Support, or Task.
  • Write a descriptive subject line.
  • At this point you may select Create at the bottom of the page. If you can fill in more information, please do.
  • To link to another issue maintained in Redmine, type # followed by the issue number (#17).
  • To link to a subversion changeset, put a lower case r in front of the revision number (r234).

When you are ready for the next level of issue settings check out the Issue Workflow Tutorial.
