Trac Rockz

Recently, the pre-pre-startup team I am working with decided to start using Trac, from Edgewell Software. It is amazingly simple to use, and provides exactly the level of SCM and Project Management we want – minimal, agile, and unobtrusive.

Within minutes of having our site up we had modified the wiki, added new pages, and started tracking tasks through the ticket system.  With the integration to Subversion we now have an industrial strength SCM solution that just plain works. As a professional I am work within the confines of the clients local software environment, and  usually this means costly (in terms of both capital outlay and learning curve/backend maintenance) softwre suites. Henceforth, when I am asked for tools to use my answer will be Trac, Subversion, and MyEclipse.
