Pivotal Tracker - Features Tour. Points and Velocity The conversation around assigning points to a feature is often as important as the estimate itself.

Pivotal Tracker - Features Tour

When points are determined based on the team’s estimation of how complex the feature will be to complete, they dial-in estimates that can help predict the future. This achieves the goal of steady velocity with low volatility. Story Work­flow Add stories to the icebox that are ready for prioritization by dragging them to your backlog, so they can flow into the current iteration according to your velocity.

It's pretty basic, but it works well for our small team and it's easy to understand and maintain. Note that the above wiki code contains some references to custom fields (notably review_issues) that we use to manage code reviews on a ticket-by-ticket basis.

In our small team, we've decided to allow commits of unreviewed code, but require code to be reviewed before it's cleared for testing. The Agile Coaching Company. Ivan Kuznetsov › Using Trac for agile project management.

Ivan Kuznetsov › Using Trac for agile project management

In agile projects, especially in large organizations, one needs to find the right balance between “post-it management” bordering with chaos and monstrous tools and processes for requirements and defect management and project documentation and reporting. Choosing the right tool can have a significant impact on team performance. There are multiple commercial tools available for project tracking in agile environment, but I still choose Trac in most of the cases for its openness, simplicity and customizability. Below I explain the reasons for this choice and highlight limitations we faced in large scale projects. Documentation Requirement management Defect management.
