That's probably fine for a certain set of developers, but I use Redmine because it's a replacement for both Basecamp and Trac (and fits the workflow of me and my company better than each), and I'm able to use it to manage non-technical projects with non-technical members alongside technical projects with technical members.

Usability is hugely important. Or even worse Especially in the second example, I have no idea what I'm looking at. Anyway, I hope this is useful.
