    Hi Everybody,

    I am looking for a project management tool. Mostly what I need to do
    is tie together requirements, test scripts for one-off type requests
    and then organize those requests into a hierarchy and then be able to
    generate reports, e.g. this is what we worked on last week, last
    month, last year, etc., here are the projects we had an impact on, and
    here are the individual tasks that we performed (it would also be nice
    to have things like a way to enter how much time each task took and a
    way to be able to press a button and get a requirements document or
    test script for a given project).

    We are currently working in a one-off/XP kind of model where we get
    requirements one week at a time. Often requirements will be given
    during a meeting, tabled for several weeks/months, and returned to
    when the topic gets hot again. The tool would need to be a repository
    for these requirements so we could revisit what we talked about a
    month ago with out needed to troll through our email to figure out who
    said what several months ago).

    We do not need to do most of what MS Project does well (e.g. create
    time lines, dependencies, etc.).

    I'm thinking Bugzilla would be a good place to start but I'm
    wondering if there is something that has come along that would be
    better.

    Thanks,
    John

    I like <http://trac.edgewall.org/>. I see SourceForge uses it, too:
