Amen! Were it not for Redmine, I have no idea what I'd do!

The biggest testament to Redmine is how I arrived to using it.

Tried Trac on a shared hosting provider. Didn't auto-create SVN, I had to issue people Subversion passwords. Eventually I found a workaround... that gave everyone who registered on my site SVN commit authority. Not good! Trac was hard to use, confused all my other developer friends, and generally made a mess.

Moved to a VPS and tried using GForge. GForge is massive, complex, and slow. It confused all my developers massively - they hated it. It was slow, and caused many things to just plain Not Work (TM). Advantages? It automatically created SVN repositories and controlled their access. Major plus!

GForge eventually became so bloated over time (it got worse with time... strangest thing I've ever seen in a web app) that I had to just declare it "broken" and move on. So I tried Redmine.

Took a week to configure. Ran flawlessly for 74 days. Updated it and Debian and ran into a million issues. Mainly my fault. Advantages? Simple, my developers can find their way around it, my Wiki Nazi developer (the one that really uses wikis, almost to the point of abuse) likes the Wiki a lot (second only to Trac). It automatically creates and controls my repositories. I don't have to do anything to it in order for it to continue working. In short: it's the godsend to my needs. Simple. Works.

It makes me proud of the site I maintain. Thank you so much for Redmine! It's really the best thing I've ever used - and trust me, I've tried 'em all (all the free ones, that is)!
