I'm in that system. I knew it was hosed years ago (like 7), when, immediately after registering, I began to receive boatloads of spam related to govt contracts. It's likely been wide open for ages.
reading the comments in this thread reminds me why i rarely read comments on slashdot.
mirah is java, with a friendlier type system and ruby-like syntax. like jruby, but without having to drag around a huge runtime library, or maintain language compatibility with a language with no spec (ruby).
mirah compiles directly to bytecode, just like java, so it's as fast as java. it has type inference, so types are still there if you want/need them. the syntax is a matter of religion and/or taste, i tend to like it. you also get the entire corpus of java frameworks and libraries for free.
i personally am _more_ excited about mirah than i am about jruby (or even ruby for that matter).
charles nutter is one of the main (the main?) guy behind jruby for those who (for some reason) think this is some sort of attack on jruby.

Tikal Bugzilla is available for download from Tikal's project at SourceForge.
While Bugzilla is considered an excellent and reliable bug tracker, it is lacking in usability and flexibility. On the other hand, extreme flexibility can be a drag on usability (see Scarab). Balancing all, Tikal has released a "crowd pleaser" version of Bugzilla which includes:
- New, easy to use GUI
- "Custom Fields" creation via a GUI, no coding needed
True multi type issue tracking
- "Easy Orientation" via a personal dashboard
- Sub task fields (each can be attributed to a different user)
- "View Version Control Activity" feature
Tikal's Bugzilla lets you manage and process the myriad of issues that are part of the development process — change requests, tasks, patches, features etc. Each issue can have several sub tasks, each can be attributed to several owners.
Certified versions and full support is available for Tikal subscribers.
Tikal previously released Tikal Update Manager (TUM), a YUM Extender like, GUI based update manager for Eclipse IDE.
Tikal provides additional open source high performance tools for application development and life-cycle management.
