About the upcoming Project Management tool and/or Bugtracker
I'm posting this message to discuss about the upcoming Project Management tool. However, I think we need both a PM tool and a bugtracker.
So far, It's been suggested:
And I think that...
- dotProject: I like it a lot, except the tacky interface.
- phpCollab: A dead project, IMO.
- streberPM: I liked everything about this one.
- Trac: I think should be the bugtracker.
- Tracks: Isn't it too simple if we keep in mind that GGL is always growing?
The Bug tracker:
In addition to the Project Management tool, this one is a must-have, as we need a tool to keep track of the source code in GGL that also has built-in support for issue tracking and SVN. Thus, I think websvn should by replaced by Trac.
Maybe using an "All-in-one" tool (Project Management + Bug tracker) is easier to maintain, but I haven't found one of these suitable for our upcoming projects: Is Trac (for example) suitable for us to keep track of non-technical stuff such as embassies-related proposals? I don't think so; for these tasks, we need a PM tool. On the other hand, is streberPM (for example) suitable for us to keep track of our HTML? I don't think so either; for these tasks we need a source code tracker (such as Trac or Bugzilla).
Finally, I vote for:
- streberPM as our Project Management tool.
- Trac as our source code's tracker.
PS: Don't you think that all of our source code should be available from our SVN? It shouldn't be available for the Spanish translation only, IMO. Also, Olivier wouldn't have to maintain a zip file.
