    *OpenProject - [OP] the standard I've been comparing things due simply due to having it already running and using it kinda (not a lot), for testing. Where's the stupid demo? Gah. Lame limitations on kaban when self-hosting. Good documentation/guides. Well supported/updated. Relatively customizable; but not overly so it isn't too complicated. There's a path to enterprise features/support/training if management ever wants to pay for stuff.
