Open source solution
A combination of a version control system [Subversion | Git | Mercurial] and
a bug tracking system [Jira <http://www.atlassian.com/software/jira/> |
Trac] - a large number of open source projects use Jira and many companies I
have worked with really like it. - http://www.atlassian.com/software/jira/

Online solution (free/commercial)
Assembla.com - an online developer service with subversion and git
repositories, wiki, ticket tracking system and a whole host of agile
sounding stuff.  You can get free public service or paid for closed service
- I currently use this for training projects and coding dojos

Software as a service
Service-now.com - a very flexible service management tool that can be easily
configured and included incident, change and release management
functionality - you would need to add a version control system to this

Commercial / Microsoft solution
Microsoft Team Foundation Server - this is not great for very large project
and is not as nice as Team City.
Team City - http://www.jetbrains.com/teamcity/ -  (free for 20 users) - very
easy to set up and use, not as expensive as Microsoft I believe.
