KForge is a project for managing software and knowledge projects.

It re-uses existing best-of-breed tools such as a versioned storage (subversion), a tracker (trac), and wiki (trac or moinmoin), integrating them with the system’s own facilities (projects, users, permissions etc).

KForge also provides a complete web interface for project administration as well a fully-developed plugin system so that new services and features can be easily added.

Here are some key features of "KForge":
Projects, users and permissions
Best of breed tools available out of the box including subversion, trac, moinmoin
Extensible with a fully developed plugin system and simple API
Opensource and python-based

What's New in This Release:
A system administration interface at /admin/.
A complete rewrite of the Web interface code to be simpler and cleaner.
Expanded and improved documentation.
DAV access is fully functional, and there are fixes to access control: tickets 11, 8, 15, and 16.
The command line interface has been rewritten and centralized in kforge-admin.
Support for trac >= 0.9 (while maintaining support for trac 0.8).
Improved logging for development and sysadmin purposes.
Other minor fixes/improvements: tickets 1, 5, and 3.
