eXPlain Project Management Tool Publisher's description
from Jake Dempsey
eXPlain Project Management Tool is a web-based application built using the Ruby on Rails framework that supports the eXtreme Programming development methodology.
eXPlain Project Management Tool (or simply eXPlainPMT) is a web-based application that supports the eXtreme Programming development methodology (http://www.extremeprogramming.org). Although traditional XP advocates the use of ordinary index cards to keep track of development requirements (story cards), this practice is sometimes impossible or undesirable.
It's a practice that doesn't work well with geographically distributed teams, or developers with sloppy handwriting and/or cluttered desks (I certainly fall in the latter category. eXPlainPMT allows story cards to be filed via the web based interface and made accessible to the entire project team. It also allows the status of the stories to be tracked and for the stories to be planned in an ongoing iterative process.
The goal of the product is to support the methodology while staying out of the way as much as possible, so you'll find that there are few access restrictions or permissions settings. Just like with note cards, restrictions on who can view/alter the story cards are left to the consensus of the team.
System Requirements:No special requirements.
