    There's a free edition of the platform that supports up to like 15 users.
    Yea, i'm looking for something that can handle more users rather than having to pay per user.

    I'll see about giving 1.4.x a go when it gets to 1.4.1. Using fresh software and all that.

    Wow that's a big jump. Couple of suggestions:

    a) Use SVN 1.4.0 because it features a new binary diff algorithm which is faster and saves space
    b) Compare the size difference between BDB and FSFT databases
    c) Only import the trunk/CVS HEAD into SVN and then keep the CVS viewer alive for archival reasons; when importing from CVS -> SVN, the problem is that every single commit (even if they all went to the server at the same time) has to be its own separate SVN revision

    The sourceforge.net site is free for all open source projects:

    SourceForge.net provides free hosting to Open Source software development projects. The essence of the Open Source development model is the rapid creation of solutions within an open, collaborative environment. Collaboration within the Open Source community (developers and end users) promotes a higher standard of quality, and helps to ensure the long-term viability of both data and applications

    Out of curiosity - has anyone used microsoft project? I imagine thats more suited for an individual user than a platform for multiple users but still curious about it.

    edit: for fun, I was thinking about making a project management application in php/mysql. Any open source recommendations that I poke a stick at?

    The only bug reporting software I've had experience with is Mantis. And boy what a mess that thing was! Funny thing was, I ended up using vBulletin to manage bugs! And it gave me much more freedom to do whatever I want.

    What bug reporting software does vBulletin use?

    Trac is what I've been falling in love with recently, it has Tasks, Issues and Bugs as well as a Wiki for documentation / notes.

    The Timeline is also great too for generating reports and gives contexts to commits. Subversion is a bit of a beast, lets just say that 60mb of vb3 CVS became 4GB of Subversion during recent tests. There has been about 15,000 commits to vBulletin 3.x.

    The best project management software at your disposal is hiring a project manager A lot of "trained" project managers know what they're doing and will keep everything organised for you. I've heard basecamp is quite good though..
