[wp-hackers] How do you manage your plugin development?

I have been developing two plugins for a while now, no shameless
plug ;), and I have been wondering how other developers are
managing their plugins.
I'm thinking about bug tracking, project management etc.

Personally I'm using the following:
I run Linux and use Eclipse for writing my plugins. I created a local
git repository in which I do my development and when I have a release
ready I copy the contents of the git repo into the trunk of svn repo
@ wordpress, create a new tag and commit the svn repo.

I have a forum where people can report bugs, but people also report
bugs in the comment section on my blog. I usually fix the bug within a
few days. And don't really keep track of them.

For project management, it's big word for what I'm doing, I use
OpenOffice. I just have a document in which I set my goals for next
I started a release schedule just a few days ago and I put the dates in
