Currently Reviewing Open Source Agile Tools

Looking for the best open source tools for running agile projects.  The goal of this little experiment is to create a CI / CD pipeline including planning, task management, source control / versioning, triggered build and test and deployment to the cloud.

Today I’m experimenting with Taiga an open source planning and task management tool.  So far the interface is intuitive and it has most of the features and data points that I would expect to capture during planning.

For free you can have 3 team members and 1 private project (unlimited public projects).  There are Epics, Stories and Sub-tasks to track.  There are Sprints, Backlogs and Kanbans to view.  It even has an issue tracker and a wiki.  You can even link your project timeline to a slack channel to share project updates.

So far this tool is looking pretty good for free.  Are there other free tools that I should be looking at?  Looking for integration with Git and Jenkins to automate builds and tests.  The golden feature is Gated Checkins!  If there is a free open source solution that allows association of an assigned sub-task on checkin to version control then triggers a build in Jenkins and creates an issue (bug) in work item tracking if the build or tests fails or deploys to the cloud if successful the contest is over!  If you know of this magical free toolset please leave links in the comments.

I’ll post a video and screenshots shortly with a more detailed review.
