So we're looking for the best FLOSS project management software to use.

I'm liking Redmine (Ruby on Rails)
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Redmine
http://www.redmine.org/

OpenProject
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/OpenProject
https://www.openproject.org/
A fork of Redmine, more active developer community, more features though not sure if we need them

Teambox version 3 (Ruby on Rails)
Company behind it went closed source in version 4 which seems way better. Not sure if it's worth it considering this fact
https://github.com/teambox/teambox

Any other ones?

Would like to hear your opinions.

Arianit

Hi there,

for some projects you might want to keep it simple, just use a wiki,
maybe semantic media wiki.
other things can be done with pure git, or use a nice tool like
http://gitlab.org/ it has basic project management with a git repo
system

now for redmine,
https://www.chiliproject.org/ might be a nice alternative.
we were experimenting with open-atrium, it looked promising.
otrs can be used, but it is very bulky.
openerp might be a solution, but I am not convinced about it.
see this older post for more ideas.

we (rrota) are using achievo. it's rather good for service companies which need to track time for their service, I wouldn't say it's good for project management in general because it's to much focused on time tracking.
Take a look at http://scrumy.com/ as well, It's simple it's agile but you have to do it the scrum way.

Thank you Besnik and other for engaging in the discussion.

I had another look and here are my conclusions of what has been suggested so far. I like Scrumy for its simplicity but it's proprietary, we can't host it and free accounts are are public and editable by anyone. So no go.

Among the open source ones, OpenProject and ChiliProject are forks of Redmine. They all go beyond our needs but ChiliProject and OpenProject have an UI advantage over Redmine. OpenProject seems to have the highest number of developer activity with lots of add-ons and many users, including many big ones. Long term, this seems the safest way to go.

Any takers in installing OpenProject in stripped-down configuation?

Thank you,

Arianit

You have a server to put it on? Should be simple. Send me the access codes.
