BaseCamp By 37Signals, the company of Ruby-On-Rails inventor David Heinemeier Hansson.
FogBugz It is intended as software bug tracker and project management but works for just about any use. It is free for one or two person teams. For more users it is $25 a month.
bitbucket offers a free plan that allows you to have unlimited private and public repositories shared between 5 users maximum. You would need to use Mercurial or Subversion to manage the files though, but if you're familiar with source control tools it should be easy enough. Pros Unlimited space and repositories Integrates with other services (ex: with ...
Trello Trello is used for all kinds of project and task management. It’s based on a simple board and card metaphor. Trello supports Chrome 9 and above, Firefox 4 and above, Safari 5.0.5 and above, and Internet Explorer 9 and above. Trello blog is here.
I've written a (very basic) front-end to AWeg's version of the copy script. You can use it here: http://asana.kothar.net It works for small projects, but at the moment I don't have any large ones to test it with - I suspect it will time out on the server, since it tries to do everything in one go. Sourcecode is available of course.
CodeBase Codebase is your software project management tool with fast, reliable Git, Mercurial & Subversion hosting baked right it.
Redmine if you don't mind self-hosting
http://www.redmine.org/ you could give this one a try, it covers most things you might need.
I ended up using ProjectLocker. Mainly cause it was super easy to use! They provide Source Control, Automated Builds, Trac, Wikis.
Regarding question no. 1, as per Trello's page on Privacy, Security and Data: Free... for how long? Trello is free forever. We may add pay-only features in the future, but everything that's free today will be free tomorrow and forever. Regarding question no. 4, it's subjective and thus not fit with the StackExchange policy on questions type. See ...
Assembla also offers free SVN or Git repository hosting. Their free plans have unlimited users/repos (public or private) with 2GB total disk space.
I have a free SVN account on a site called Unfuddle. Works great with both Eclipse and Visual Studio. They also provide GIT and Trac support. While their free plan is good enough for me, most of their plans look quite affordable if you have a team.
I agree with your friend about not dividing up into separate boards by type of job. With your examples such as 'Design ideas' etc, I think they really do fit naturally within different lists on the same Board. It's exactly the sort of usage that Joel demoed in multiple videos about Trello. The only thing I can think of, to help manage very long lists, is ...
I just went through an exhaustive search and trial of the tools out there (about two dozen or so) that include most of what you're looking for plus a few more, such as horizontal 'swimlanes' or pipelines. I was also looking for customizable columns, which is surprisingly rare, open RESTful APIs, integration with Google Apps, esp. gmail, built on a solid ...
The last company I worked for used redmine hosted at https://www.hostedredmine.com/. Looking into it now, it appears it's actually a third-party service. Redmine's wiki lists a couple other alternatives: BitNami Cloud Hosting makes it easy to host your own Redmine installation in the Cloud. It provides automatic backup and monitoring and allows you to ...
LiquidPlanner seems quite good. It has a nice feature that shows the spread of task completion times based on past performance. The again there is always FogBugz ;-) Neither are free, although FogBugz does have various free for academic use options.
I'm a big fan of http://www.trackmyhours.com. They are always updating based on user requests, and since they aren't a huge player, the guys who run it seems to respond to feature requests quickly and efficiently. We currently manage 3 consultants, and 6 employees using the software, not sure if its effective for bigger teams than that... but definitely ...
We've been using Pivotal Tracker for a few months and have found it quite good.
Have a look at trac as a issue/bug tracker tool, it is very similar to redmine (or so I have heard, never tried redmine). It supports integration with MediaWiki and SVN, which together is quite a powerful combination. Have a look at Things if you are looking for a personal todo list manager. It is the best todo manager out there, and well worth its cost.
You could consider the usage of Teambox which has a twitter-like experience for project management. It is open-source and you can install it freely on your server.

GitHub tends to be the most popular as of now, its only drawback being that any free project has to be open source.
I am using Beanstalk - they have a free plan and I like it. Some features included in all versions: Private Repositories - By default both Git and Subversion repositories are private. SSL Encryption Enables 128-bit SSL encryption over HTTP (HTTPS) for more secure checkouts and commits. Daily Backups Daily backups of all customer data.
Project management software? a simple web app that maps tasks, people and time. You can try Redmine which has Gantt charts support.
Redmine comes to mind. It started as a Basecamp clone, but it now has a lot more features like source control integration (SVN, CVS, Git, Mercurial, Bazaar and Darcs).
To move a story, or a group of stories: Select them first, using the selection check boxes to the right of story titles. Then, select the 'Move to Project...' option in the Stories drop-down menu, and choose the project to which you'd like the story or stories moved.
Unfortunately, you simply can't! Quote from Asana (source): Workspaces are self-contained: projects and tasks cannot move between Workspaces or be moved into Organization. I had to create the projects from scratch in the new workspace - but was obviously unable to preserve the projects trail of comments from the initial workspace.
For an open source web app, I would suggest Trac. It even has a GIT Plugin. If you don't really care if it is open source and that somebody else is hosting it, I would highly suggest Github.
Pivotal Tracker is free and fits the "quite minimal" definition, it's simple but it just works. It's an agile, iterative workflow and story management. I love the concept of "velocity" that helps you plan future iterations.
