      Quuux It has all the features JIRA has, and some more you need add-ons for, already built in. There is (and will be) an on-premises = self-hosted version, and it ties in perfectly with the JetBrains IDEs. (Only drawback is the UI, which is slightly less polished, but still good to use - and even better, after you learn the keyboard shortcuts.)
