About IBIS-PH and the Trac Application

This page is part of the IBIS-PH WIKI and is hosted within the "Trac" application.

"trac-admin yourenvdir initenv" created a new Trac environment, containing a default set of wiki pages and some sample data. This newly created environment also contains documentation to help get things started with the IBIS-PH project.

Please use the trac-admin to configure Trac to better fit IBIS-PH, especially in regard to components, versions and milestones.

TracGuide is a good place to start.
