That's a very good point. TRAC will also handle Git, Bzr and Mercurial.

I've never used it.

Personally, I think Launchpad is probably overkill for anywhere under
200 contributors. Trac is probably fine up to that point.

I did a talk at OggCamp about resources for FLOSS developers. I know
the company you work for will therefore probably not be that
interested in many of the hosted options available to FLOSS
developers, but there are some interesting bubbles around GitHub,
Trac, and Savanne that might be of use.


All the best,
