FusionForge helps you manage the entire development life cycle

FusionForge has tools to help your team collaborate, like message forums and mailing lists; tools to create and control access to Source Code Management repositories like CVS and Subversion. FusionForge automatically creates a repository and controls access to it depending on the role settings of the project.

Additional Features:

  • Manage File Releases.
  • Document Management.
  • News announcements.
  • Surveys for users and admins.
  • Issue tracking with “unlimited” numbers of categories, text fields, etc.
  • Task management.
  • Wiki (using MediaWiki or phpWiki).
  • A powerful plugin system to add new features.
