My experiences are with Trac. Alas, since we already use Bugzilla, we
don't actually use the issue tracking at my own site. If you want to see
a heavily used Trac installation, go to http://svn.mythtv.org

The managerial end of the team love the Timeline feature, as it lets
them keep an eye on what is going on in the repository. I haven't told
them about the RSS feed, or I'd never get any peace :-)

We also use the wiki as a source of documentation and download links for
our internal toolset.

Trac also supports plugins for git, perforce, mercurial (on a branch),
darcs, and bzr, should you want to move to another VCS.

(at the moment, bzr is appealing to me the most, particularly it's svn
integration ; I use svk for offline work, at the moment, and I've tried
git, but they both have a killer issue with svn interoperation - they
mirror large revisions VERY slowly because they don't support the replay
API. Bazaar at least has a branch to support replay ; svk has support
but it doesn't work on Windows because of perl/apr thread issues, and I
don't think the code for git even tries to use it).

Of the others, I only ever heard of jira.
