I don't know, OSS is great and all, but sometimes a professional product is well worth the cash.  I tend to think of build (and/or support) vs. buy decisions the same way agile seems to think of features requests. What do you have the time/expertice budget for?

For commercial, you could try FogBugz for 45 days free. I like it, although still in that 45 day trial period and we are a very small team (5), but I am strongly leaning towards the purchase. Will cost you $25/user/month ($300/u/year) for the on-demand service and $199/user for install on your own server. Or for that matter, stay in the Ruby camp and support basecamp @ $25/month $300/yr all users (or any of the other basecamp clones) .

For OSS, I used to use Trac and it can be as light or full-featured as you want, and is a pretty easy install (for instance mac ports = "sudo port intall trac") . Either the wiki pages or tickets can be your cards. But it did not do so well with the email integration ( started implementing this with ticket requests (plus SVN commit  integration) and never finished (hence my comment on build and support.))

Hi all,

Does anyone know of an Agile project management webapp that they like?
Things like Rally, VersionOne and Mingle are > $500 per user per year
which seems excessive.

Maybe some of you are using DabbleDB for homebrewed things? The Excel
shuffle is kind of killing us right now.
