I evaluated and ran a trial of this software a few years ago and it basically was a good tool for large IT shops that need to keep track of all their projects in one central repository.

The best thing about Waffle is that it connects labels and issues easily with Github. That integration makes it really easy to track issues and the code that goes into resolving those issues.

Microsoft Project has been a standard for tracking projects of various sizes. The dependency chaining works quite well and helps visualize resource and task scheduling. Good for milestone tracking at a high level, while also designating resources to...
