Hey Nimbus devs-
We are interested in changing some of the tools we use for doing business.
First, we'd like to switch our github to Organizations mode (
http://github.com/blog/674-introducing-organizations). This will buy us a
few things: cleaner visualization that the "nimbusproject" account is not a
person, teams, and finer-grained authz for committers. For an example of a
project that is an organization, check out mongodb:
Next, we've been relying on the old Globus bugzilla system for too long now.
Cosmetic issues aside, this service is lightly maintained and it is
difficult for us to get administrative actions done. We'd like to switch
something that we have more control over and which we can brand better as
Github issues - http://github.com/blog/411-github-issue-tracker
This is pretty light on features so far, but is nicely integrated with
github. One benefit is that people don't need to juggle separate accounts.
Judging by the productivity of the github guys, I expect there will be many
improvements in the near future, but right now it is lacking.
Lighthouse - http://lighthouseapp.com
Pierre recommended this one and it seems good, but I haven't tried it much.
It appears to have good integration with github and email. For example, you
can close bugs via commit messages or by email.
Jira - http://www.atlassian.com/software/jira/
We use this on other projects and it is fine. I think we'd have to either
pay for the hosted service or host it ourselves.
There are about 50 other options. Anyone have opinions? My preference is to
give lighthouse a shot and see how far it gets us.
