Whilst we planned to use Launchpad as the main development-support tool, we needed to supplement this with a Wiki since LP doesn't include one yet (there are many requests to have this gap filled).
We need the Wiki for:
- Blueprints development
- Developer documentation
- User documentation (in time)
Trac is an excellent development-support tool with integrated Wiki, Bugtracker & Roadmap/Milestones.
The focus of the project at this point in time is one on development, so choosing a Wiki to meet this seems the most appropriate
Comparison of Projectmanagement-Software says "Even missing basic project management features, Trac is probably the best tool for managing software projects of any size. -> Highly Recommended!"
Trac can also be used as a general-purpose project management tool (use instead of BaseCamp):
- Tasks can be added as Tickets.
- Milestones can be put into the Roadmap.
- Milestones & Tickets can be displayed in a Calendar view
A nice feature of Trac is the integrated Timeline which helps provide a consolidated feed of all current activities in the project.
This could be a good basis for a manual newsletter in time but stands-alone well-enough as-is.
Trac is extendable: BluePrintTrac
Once we get to User documentation, then perhaps we should switch to Dokuwiki, as per the current Sahana:
(Another option could be MoinMoin to keep the Python/WSGI infrastructure instead of adding PHP)
