We have been using Redmine for the past year or so. We use it for
issues and for code repo integration and for tying issues to commits.
We don't much use the wiki/doc functionality and we do not create
issues via email, though I do believe it supports both of those
features out of the box.
We're very happy with it and would recommend it. It runs on Ruby on
Rails, so make sure you can support that in your environment, needless
I've also used Trac in the past, which I also liked very much but I've
found Redmine to be a little less fiddly though I recognize that is
highly subjective. If it's easier to support Python/wsgi apps in your
environment, Trac might be a better choice than than Redmine assuming
its feature set matches your needs.
