Doxygen integration

I like to write documentation, bug info, and todo's directly in the source code using doxygen style comments. It's very convenient and I'm not sure if I want to stop doing that. The Doxygen program reads these comments and then produces documentation about all functions, classes and files which includes bug reports and todo's.

Doxygen style comments are very convinient and not something I want to give up. Does FogBugz work with doxygen?

I don't see a lot of history of Doxygen in our correspondence with customers, but where I do, they seem to be minor Subversion integration issues, not issues with Doxygen itself.  So we can say that, yes, we do have customers using Doxygen, and no, there are no known roadblocks, though there's no explicit integration that we're aware of.  Other forum participants might have other experiences.

That makes sense. I suppose one can write doxygen comments in the code and then copy/paste the produced documentation into the wiki & bugtracker.

Or I might have doxygen output everything in xml mode & write a script to automatically insert new bugs and new pages in the wiki or something like that.

Or, I could probably just use doxygen as my bug/todo/documentation system & use fogbugz for the rest. (As it does quite a bit of useful things.)

I would rather use fogbugz than dotproject.

On second though, I reread the features of fogbugz and found that it's still pretty easy to add new bugs to fogbugz. Bugs can be added even by email apparently.

I'm going to try a trial of fogbugz see what I think of using it versus doxygen.
