I think that I would recomend a "yes" vote. It seemed to be nice and
offered a lot of tools. Not all of the tools are useful (IMHO) -- by
default, if enables all the tools, so you might want to disable some of
them (e.g. the patch manager -- who the hell does patches these days?).
And so on. It has nice bug tracking, gives you lots of resources (e.g.,
the compile farm), etc., etc.

The only thing that I *didn't* like about it was the mailing list web
archives -- I thought they kinda sucked; no threading, no searching, etc.
But you already have web lists setup, so that's probably not an issue.
