This award is truely deserved, and as manager of the Touchstone Development Team and a big fan of Trac, i am very happy that they have received the credit they deserve for producing, in my opinion, the best value Project Management Tool on the market.
Trac, for the uninitiated is:
"...an enhanced wiki and issue tracking system for software development projects. Trac uses a minimalistic approach to web-based software project management. Our mission is to help developers write great software while staying out of the way. Trac should impose as little as possible on a team's established development process and policies.
"It provides an interface to Subversion, an integrated Wiki and convenient reporting facilities.
"Trac allows wiki markup in issue descriptions and commit messages, creating links and seamless references between bugs, tasks, changesets, files and wiki pages. A timeline shows all project events in order, making the acquisition of an overview of the project and tracking progress very easy.
Trac really does speak for itself, and for anyone who might be considering an IT start-up, you simply cannot beat it. It's built-in support for subversion repositories, code/file browser, ticketing, wiki and plug-in systems make it simply one of the best Project Development Tools available.
Again, congrats Edgewall Software, and keep up the good work. You can learn more about Trac at the Trac Website.
