Project intranet

Hi all,

I was wondering if someone could point me in the direction of an open source project management intranet/portal?
Im looking for somthing basic that might let some users log in and be given access to information relating to a number of projects. After that maybe it could have some sort of structure that organises project info. e.g. source code, documentation, references, basic notes pages that to which we could add informal development notes which dont fit nicely in other project documentation etc....

Cheers,
John

Sounds like Confluence to me... It's free for certain non-profit organizations (see pricing).

Thanks, but we're a for-profit organisation so that wont apply to us.....

I've heard good things about Zope - IIRC, it has modules for wikis, authentication and authorization, bug databases, planning etc. all tightly integrated. Don't know any specifics, though.

You may like to check out TUTOS, which is GPLd. I know of someone who used it and found it stable and useable (a good start for OSS you've never heard before, I reckon), but I'm not sure of its usefulness.

I think I might relocate this discussion to the Other Open Source Projects forum. Let me know what you think but I guess you would get more replies there

I just read my response and I dont think I phrased it very well. I didnt mean it to sound like I was questioning the quality of the responses I have gotten up to now. I have looked at both TUTOS and ZOPE but the more options I have the better. Anway thanks for your help guys

If the backend tech doesn't matter, you could check out Drupal. They have a Projects plugin that allows you to create projects and issues related to whatever project. It's really a CMS but with plugins it turns into a lot more.

I am running it at http://www.embeddedthought.com.

Well it depends on for what you want your users do. If you have a large number of user who actively contribute with review features than I would choose buletin-board based one with portal layout as frontend. And I would choose PHP and mySQL one because there are fast and hast great community.

I had just finished the intranet portal for a company.
Although there are many good opensource CMS portal: I have choosed phpBB (http://www.phpbb.com) as the basis. It has many mods incl. the portal layout (http://www.phpbbhacks.com). Just I should remind you that the some of the mods are poorly written and some are great and clean. You should be picky in order to make your system stable.

If you have small contributor than Mambo is a good one: http://www.mamboserver.com/

Or you can also merge both of them. Mambo as the frontend and phpBB as the forum as part of your intranet.
