After four weeks of hacking, the completely renewed patchtracker integration into PEAR's bugtracker went online. Working with patches is much smoother now, the patch feature being integrated fully into the bug tracker.
Up to now, using patches in pearweb felt like using a standalone tool apart from the bugtracker. Now, everything is integrated making it a pleasure to upload, compare, override and download patches.
Apart from the patchtracker enhancements, many bugs have been fixed - the page is completly xhtml valid, an (early) print stylesheet for bug lists has been added, and links are finally underlined, which makes them much easier to detect on the page.
