Speak up if you disagree, but we could sure use a task tracker for the
One idea Mike suggested is, this Trac instance is gathering dust and
available to take over (and re-customize):
We could start using this immediately, and switch in the future. It is
Trac, I've had varied experience with it; I know how to admin it
fairly well, and we can customize it to this team with minimal effort.
(Nice to not have to invest too much in making a workflow.) My biggest
concern right now would be running at a larger scale - what happens
over time? What happens if other project teams want an integrated task
tracker? (The latter would make project management and getting an
organized release out the door easier.)
I looked around at the current state of FOSS tools that are offered as
a service, and didn't get too excited.
I've also looked at teambox.com in the past, but their no-cost
services are limited. (They also haven't released any timeline or
roadmap about open sourcing the latest version, the older versions are
FOSS; I haven't looked at what it would take to run the service
There are several services that are FOSS and we could run ourselves,
such as the above Trac and Redmine.
I strongly urge us to avoid using services that are not FOSS. There
are many competitive ones in the proprietary markets, and a few offer
no-cost usage for open source projects. I get concerned about locking
our data and workflows in to a particular vendor. I would rather pick
the best-of FOSS and be a strong user to support more development on
our choice. Unfortunately, this does limit our choices in what is
offered as a service.

As discussed with Karsten las week, I've been looking for a wordpress plugin that would support something like marketplace.redhat.com
Found nothing specific, but there are plenty custom type plugins, like Types (http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/types/)
I have installed it locally, and it looks quite usable.
Karsten, can we move ahead with this?
