Yes. It's here:

We chose flyspray because it's written in PHP, uses MySql (which are
requirements for us, so we can install it on berlios.de and/or
Other reasons:
- it's simple, has not zillions of features nobody ever
- it doesn't need a masters degree to get it to run
- users can work with it immediately, no big learning curve like some
other issue trackers
- it's fast. Many operations are done without a complete reload of the
page (e.g. if you close a task, change something in a task, ... it won't
reload the whole page but simply show "task updated" at the bottom).
- it has enough user roles so that we can prevent users from creating
new issues on their own. That's why we had to get rid of the
issuetracker on tigris.org - people kept using the issuetracker to ask
questions (and most of those questions could be easily solved by reading
the docs).

btw: I've updated our issuetracker to 0.9.8 now.
