I also asked Paul McMahon, author of Integrating CMMI and Agile Development for his take on defect tracking, which he wrote about in his tip:
My research on the topic unveiled so many informative tips that we put together a metrics guide for our readers: Quality metrics: A guide to measuring software quality.
