A Survey of Web-Based Software Project Portals

An interesting read came across my twitterstream the other day.

A Survey of Web-Based Software Project Portals

It’s a survey of web-based tools specifically in the realm of software development.? They included the following as their final list of portals:

  • Acunote
  • Assembla
  • BaseCamp
  • DotProject
  • Google Code
  • IBM Jazz
  • Mingle
  • Rally
  • SourceForge
  • Trac
  • VersionOne

Note this was done July-Sept 2008 and things move quickly in this realm.? If nothing else, this gives you some guidance as to options available if you are looking for something like this.

I’d like to point this out:

“…possible research directions derived from this work could focus on understanding how these portals are really used.”

This would be excellent.? The configuration of the tool and how it is used seems to me the best measure of utility.? Key features will not be used if they are burdensome.? Undocumented features that emerge through application can sometimes be very powerful properties of any software package.? I would like to know more about these things.
