Mr.Wolfe is a tracker for support issues written as a Django application. It is not a tracker for software issues, like Bugzilla, Jira, etc. In the latter issues are related to software, and are tracked in terms of a life cycle from incoming to resolving in a specific software release (or closing without a release). Mr.Wolfe on the other hand tracks support issues, that may be questions, performance problems, software failures, etc. in terms of a life cycle from perceived problem to solved problem. An issue in Mr.Wolfe may or may not result in a software issue.

Issues in Mr.Wolfe are related to a Service Level Agreement, and are handled according to the services agreed in the SLA. Several services may be added to a SLA, like 'high priority, solve within 8 hours' or 'low priority, solve at your leisure'. The operator dashboard will use these services to determine the status of the issue, like 'critical' (deadline is soon) or 'normal' (sit back and relax).

Issues are read from one or more mail queues (let's face it, customers will just keep sending those issues per mail anyway) and dispatched to the proper SLA if one can be found. Otherwise, it is orphaned and shown on the operator dashboard.

The intended target audience of Mr.Wolfe is support teams and help desks; it is an alternative to the well known OTRS, although it is much simpler, offers less features and therefore also lacks the incomprehensible admin interface.

See the docs directory in the package for further reading.
