I'm doing my dissertation on evaluating BT as a complete penetrators toolkit.

One of my objectives is to talk about the tool integration process and if tools being integrated within Backtrack has spurred development and increased tool functionality.

One of my main sources for information for this was the redmine tracker, which held lots of information on when tools were added/updated and I could use this to see when tools were added and compare the development on the tool dev's github/googlecode site before and after integration to see if there is a correlation between tools being integrated within BT and if there is an increase in bug fixes/updates as of result of exposure to the BT community or if there isn't any change to the development.

As the redmine site has been retired and due to time constraints for my dissertation is there any other way I can access the repository information, eg when tools were updated/added to BT's repository?
