In comparison to other solutions
========================
- It's not LotusNotes. We are dedicated to small open minded teams with 1 to 40 users. If you are IBM you will probably have to write your own solution.
- It's not Trac: Streber not entirely focused on handling programming projects. It still has no API, cvs or Subversion plug ins. If you only need to manage one software project without controlling efforts and companies we can recommend trac.edgewall.org/
