ALM Suite is a suite for developers to plan and control software projects. It delivers in a single installer four basic tools recommended for controlled development with standard integrations between them:

Version Control - Subversion with integration to CruiseControl and RT

Build Automation - CruiseControl with html pages pre-configured with the default Apache instance

Ticket Management - RT (RequestTracker)

Agile Planning - XPlanner

ALM Suite 0.7 is the second release of ALM Suite and adds support for Ubuntu as well as SUSE EL and RHEL. That being said, the installer works just fine on RedHat Fedora Core 4.

Installs a Subversion project with configuration files to replicate initial set-up
