Re: [SLUG] Open source Requirements Tools


If we're going to plug "This suggestion completely contradicts what
you said you were looking for,  but..." solutions, SLUG's hosts
Atlassian have some products that seem to fit the bill - Jira
(http://www.atlassian.com/software/jira/) probably being the best
match.

It's written in a real language, Java, and is also free for
open-source projects and community groups. The licence gives you
access to the source and the right to make your own modifications
forever (and when the licence expires, it just means you don't get
access to new source any more - your existing install still works, and
you still have the right to make your own modifications) (at least, I
think it does, check before you hand over cash though).

(obdisc: my partner works for Atlassian. I was an Atlassian fanboy
even before he started working there)
