Simple to setup. Integration with Subversion. Has a Wiki, allowing
documentation to be readily available to the users.

Trac also "understands" Subversion log messages, and automatically
creates links. For example, if in a log message I put "Closes #1", #1
will be a hyperlink when viewed over the web, linking to issue #1.

There are other hyperlink conventions built-in.

There is also a Python post-commit script floating around that reads the
committed log message, and updates the issue database accordingly.

Doing it now ;)

I enter a bug about once every other month... Except for an initial
flurry of activity. At the moment, I don't think there is anything I'm
missing in it.

Works like a charm !

Hope that helps !
