I finally pushed myself on doing some progress on ukolovnik task tracker. It got some wanted features, brand new setup script and there is core of database based configuration.
Setup script works only for MySQL >= 4.1 and I will probably raise requirements to this version as I can not check anywhere correct functionallity with older versions. Anyway if there is some user of older version, please contact me, and we'll find a solution.
I can not promise new release date, but I want to finish db config soon and it is only remaining issue for next release.
