Web Software Architecture and Engineering – Life on the Bleeding Edge

I need your help and input! We’ve been using SourceForge OnDemand (now a part of CollabNet, the people behind Subversion) since 2006! Even though our team is smaller now, we’ve still outgrown it. There are so many new players in this field now, especially those that are cheaper in this tight economy.
So I’m putting together a list of features that I’d like to have in this new tool. I need your help in letting me know if I’m missing anything, or if there is a tool you’d like me to take a look at and consider. Your experiences would be helpful as well.
So without further ado, here is my list of must haves (will keep updating this list):

  • SVN Repo Hosting
    • SVN 1.5+ (if not 1.6)
    • Code Browser
    • Integration w/Eclipse via Plugin
  • Some sort of Issue/Artifact Tracker
    • Track Requirements through lifecycle
    • Track Help Desk issues
    • Track Bugs
    • Track General Tasks
    • This feature should have customizable statuses, etc.
  • Simple Project Management
    • Simple Project Pages w/ Highlights
    • Milestones
  • Collaboration
    • Wiki
    • Forum/Messaging
    • File Repo
    • Email Alerts
    • RSS
  • Extensibility
    • API
  • Administration
    • Distinct Permissions
    • Flexibility
  • Cost
    • The lower the better!

Do you have some recommendations! Should I add/drop features? Comments appreciated!
