    If you want more functionality, such as a ticketing system and the ability to manage source code repos, look at Redmine ( which also has a wiki feature. Trac is older but also has a wiki ( - Source: Reddit / about 2 months ago

  • A brief history of Source Control
    Over the years I installed various web interfaces to allow “browsing” of source code, some even had bug trackers built in. The ones I can remember are Trac and Redmine.

  • Devs please make dev branch a permanent thing where we can test new features before they are complete
    Set up a proper development tracking/ticketing system such as Trac and give access to it to players on the dev branch. This will be miles ahead of the current spam on #game-feedback on FOD, and can be used as a proper platform to actually offer structured feedback to devs. Everyone will benefit from this, the devs and the players alike. - Source: Reddit / about 1 year ago
  • Auto-linking to issues (like github or trac) based on regex?
    In github, you can link to an issue just by typing #500. Trac had similar auto-link types for linking to source code lines, issues, etc. - Source: Reddit / over 1 year ago
  • Show HN: Monte Carlo simulation for predicting project timelines

  • Ticketing system
    As long as I remember should be able to receive emails and create tickets. - Source: Reddit / almost 2 years ago
