+1 for Redmine. I've used most of the open source ticketing systems out 
there at one time or another, and greatly prefer Redmine over all of 
them. I've always been a big proponent of open source and only using 
proprietary software if you absolutely have to (to the point of 
deploying Linux for internal small-scale firewalling and routing (i.e. 
VM clusters, test environments) before I'll concede that hardware is 
required), but I'll admit that Atlassian Jira is probably the best 
ticketing product out there right now. But it's proprietary and costs 
money. Other than that, Redmine is the way to go.
