    One of the most important features of Jira as an issue track is, that I can very easy add a screenshot to the bug description (wysiwyg, copy-paste).

    GitLab comes with some great project management tooling. Sure, it's not as powerful as JIRA's, but it isn't totally bare-bones either. Some of the supported features are: Issues, Boards, Requirements, Epics, Milestones, Roadmaps, Burndown Charts, Time Tracking

    trello does not have the features to manage workflow in nearly the same capacity. It's fine for small projects and teams, but I can't see who's working on what, what the status of a task or story is, view burn down charts or any of the other functionality I would want for a large-scale project.

    Trello is more for a Kanban approach. JIRA alternatives should consider other things to be that, alternatives.

    Trello cant have filters for specific things, or any issue types with associated workflow. It's very simple and not good enough for running projects.

    Trello does not have true agile/scrum or kanban boards, it's just like a pinterest board of sorts.
