Nice... they provide the source as well.  I know this is contra to the FLO model... but, I have not seen anything that covers the scope of functionality as well.  Nice recommendation, noted!

For a managing web development projects more wholesale - beyond just ticket tracking - I've used active collab

which I must say covers all the bases right out of the box:
- teams
- milestones
- tasks
- document management with versioning
- discussion threads
- issue ticketing
and integrates with subversion.

Basic license is $249, don't need to reinvent any wheels.

Quoting Todd Grayson <>:

Yes, and I'm backing the use of

for those things you list, tactical, one off, or to-do check list items that have to be tracked from request to completion. IMHO a request for a new app could come in from something like this, but specifying and managing the development effort beyond it would be out of scope of the tool. Note that they dont mention "manage web development projects" as a feature in the explanation of the product.

This options was suggested Ticket/Project tracking system in the OWS Solutions list.

It's open source and seems to have all things you need:

RT is a/battle-tested/  issue tracking system which thousands of
organizations use for/bug tracking/,/help desk ticketing/,
/customer service/,/workflow processes/,/change

even more.

I don't have personal experience with it, but it may be worth exploring.

   I'll start looking around. A combo of project workspace as well

   We will need subversion/cvs infrastructure for managing

       Hi All,
       I know there is a push to get the new NYCGA.CC site up soon.

       In the meantime, Devin or anyone like to offer their advice on
       an open-source webapp that is project-building-centric. The
       following scenario was roughly sketched out. I would like to
       implement something for the Arts & Culture groups but possible
       all groups could use something with these project-centric

       - person or group proposes project to system.
       - project info goes onto database w/ # of volunteers and
       skills sets needed.
       - community members join project.
       - Once the a set number of members &/or skill join, the system
       emails all.
       - steps to move project forward are then worked out and posted:
       meetings/production phases/deadlines, are added.

       P.s That's truly the next step forward for web apps. I mean
       how many times can you "like" a funny photo on facebook before
       you feel like you should be harnessing the power of the people
       to get amazing stuff done.
