Can you give some details of this? I browsed around for a bit and it
looks like it has pretty much the same features with a different
interface. Other than the Agile plugin.

It sounds from the front page like it has some nice features Redmine
doesn't have but they don't seem to pan out. For instance, "Code Review"
just means "repository browsing", not actual reviews.

Also, it seems to be the work of one guy...last two commits one and two
months ago. Nothing wrong with this per se, just makes sense to see how
likely it is to continue. (Redmine is far more active here -- they only
seem to have two committers to the main repository but they merge a lot
of patches in from outside.)

OTOH, it seems to be supported by the commercial entity where the guy
works. OTOOH this also means that its direction may be driven by that
singular entity, and if they go out of business, development may mostly
stop, unless the various people using it rally and form a project.
