The 100% open source alternative to Jira

Many agile teams have chosen Tuleap to manage their software development projects. Among the reasons why they opted for it, the open source feature of Tuleap has certainly played an important role in the decision-making.

There are lots of proprietary or open source software project development tool on the market but beware: too many Open Source tools are now completely out-dated, sometimes even obsolete. Some of them may appear to be very attractive at first, but they often have very limited features ; some of them only provide one part of the software as Open Source, and keep the rest of the product under proprietary licence. Well, for all of that, we advise you to trust true Open Source software providers that really grant you effective independence!

The Open Source at its best.
