I've been working at a firm that uses the combination of Jira
(ticketing) and Confluence (knowledge management) - commercial, separate
products but integrable, https://www.atlassian.com/.
For open source, the old standby is RT, which includes an integrated FAQ
manager - http://www.bestpractical.com/ - the FAQ facility is referred
to as "articles"
Both are a bit "clunky" for my taste - but then, I've yet to find
anything in that space that isn't. And, of course, very few (if any)
are aimed at the library environment (Jira is aimed at software
developers, RT at IT/network operations, for example).
In theory, there is no difference between theory and practice.
In practice, there is. .... Yogi Berra
