Depends what you want sort of ticketing you want. Will be overkill for
most situations and is a mongrel to configure and runs off Java
(tomcat) so the hatters are going to reject it on that and it's kinda
a resource hog too :D I'm really not selling it...

But when it comes down to it, it works great has features you don't
even know you'll need. If you aren't using version control heavily and
are developing services and solutions in house it's great.

If you are working with a lot of remote entities with different
systems it is overkill though if you are thinking along the lines of
bugzilla, redmine, trac it could be a good option.

It is very feature rich and customizable. It can connect to a mailbox and process emails as tickets, and assign them to staff for actioning. Or you can provide a portal for customers to connect to to create tickets.
