We use JIRA and Greenhopper, Jenkins as CI all hosted in the cloud by cloudbees, and we deploy to a cloudbees as well.

Ironically we've been looking to ditch MantisBT for years... Can't integrate with our internal systems (e.g. accounts) very easily.

We have JIRA for internal issue tracking. Until recently it was 4.1 or 4.2 and the main problems were with organising stuff - things either did nothing or didn't do what we were asking for. 4.4 is far more reliable and gives expected results at last. If only their upgrade procedure was simple...

Have a look at Mantis. http://www.mantisbt.org/
I use it for years and it is great, IMHO.
Be warned: It's PHP, on top of Apache.

At work I use JIRA and I'm constantly frustrated with it. :(

Hi Kim,

CI: 
I recommend Jenkins (formerly Hudson), it is free and plenty of plugins, works with most vas and build tools maven, ant, gradle, grails etc.
I also can recommend Bamboo, very good when you have a large number of projects as it scales nicely but it costs money.

Code Review:  FishEye & Crucible - very easy to use

Bug tracking:  I have been using Jira for the past couple of years and I really don't like it.  I don't know of any alternatives and would love to hear about some.  It is over complicated and I have yet to come across customisations that ever seem to work.  I prefer cards on the wall/board but you need to bare in mind cards can go missing.  Amazing what havoc an over zealous cleaner can do to an iteration.

Cheers,
Aaron

Hi

We're looking at setting up a nice new development and deployment process and I am evaluating different tools to use in our Agile[ish] environment.

We need:
- project management + bug tracking
- code review
- ci 
all hooked in and integrated together along with a vcs (ideally git or svn).  The most obvious solution is the Atlassian set with JIRA w/ Greenhopper, Crucible etc.  

Does anyone have any personal recommendations of toolsets that work well together and are nice to use?  

I'd appreciate any feedback - even if it's "Don't use XYZ! It's a nightmare!"

Thanks,
Kim
