Sorry about that. I was hoping for someone to say, oh yeah, check out
srsly, a requirement tracking django project. it has everything you
need including email and eliza.

Sort of like learning about reviewboard.

Depends. If you need to drop IDEA into a system that follows the APCO
OTAR protocol? hells yess. and if you have to have someone from the
government come over to review your code anytime you make a change?

If you need to do something at a 1000 company, maybe yes, maybe no.

10 people, not so much.
