Trac is extremely popular to track bugs and requests, and is much
more modern and clean than Bugzilla. It's free/open source etc, and
integrated with Subversion, the current leader in version control for

As far as a secret URL is concerned, that is not secure for a wide

a login and simple permissions, whether through HTTP auth or through
a regular form system.
