Compared to a solution like Bitbucket Server (granted Phabricator offers more options), it is difficult to configure. Settings are scattered everywhere and you must drill down through several screens to find some of them. Documentation is very complete but also not always in parity with the application itself.

Total chaotische Software. Datenbank-Struktur ist absolut krank. See More
Bernd Ruschkowski's Experience
The engineering workflow is far superior to Github style branching and merging. Phabricator separates local representations of the repository from remote, which enables a variety of workflow optimisations, like stacked diffs on a single branch. See More
Stash has a permissions system that has 4 levels that go down to branch level. Global Permissions: Decide who can log in, who the system admin is, etc... Project Permissions: Read, write, and admin permissions at the project level. Repository Permissions: Read, write, and admin permissions on a repository level. Branch Permissions: Access and write(push) on a branch level. See More
Stash is commonly used in conjunction with JIRA and Confluence to provide issue tracking and wiki/project management solution respectively. Nor does it have some commonfly found info on Github, such as: Project description Most recent commit message/contributor on top Most recent commit message/date for each item in the file browser Contributor information Commit count, no branch count See More
GitHub's UI is clean and intuitive. Each view is designed to not fill the screen with useless information. For example, the repository view displays only the most crucial data about that repo - on the top it displays the number of commits, branches, releases and contributors. When clicked, each of them will take the user to a page that displays more detailed information. See More
GitHub enterprise is available for Amazon AWS, VMware and now on OpenStack KVM as well. This facilitates the use of GitHub Enterprise for people already familiar with these platforms and allows teams to keep using their infrastructure of choice. See More
for an open source software, it does what its supposed to - the (free) support via Slack was very good. See More
Code reviews can be done via Pull Requests, or simply commit-by-commit. There are voting rules, random reviewers pools, and smart comment invalidation logic. Pull requests are also versioned so it's easy to review partial changes after the author has updated his code. When you create a Pull-request you can add set of reviewers. They all have to vote and approve the PR. There's some flexibility on how the voting is accepted, it can be majority wins, or all-agree. Good practice is to add BOT accounts like jenkins, that also will vote on the review, based on for example tests run, and can forbid a merge because of a negative vote. In addition users can leave special type of comments that will also prevent merges, aka TODO notes. Once TODOs are resolved a Pull Request can be merged. See More
Gerrit has the best review support, and is easy to setup. See More
Inaccurate installation instructions which did not reflect what was displayed on the screen, despite following the instructions step by step. Is it really so difficult for developers to test their own instructions against a fresh server to see if they work? Two hours down the drain before moving on to another product... Not as advertised :( See More
Issue tracking in Deveo is better compared to GitHub, Bitbucket or Gitlab. In Deveo you can define arbitrary states for issues, meaning you can model your team's workflow as it is in real life. In addition to arbitrary states for issues, you have free control over priorities and labels that enhance the experience. See More
Deveo has a project based built-in markdown based Wiki, that allows you to host your project documentation in one place. The whole wiki history is saved to a Git repository, which you can checkout and edit locally if you need. Deveo offers a unique split view for editing the wiki pages, that updates the preview automatically while you write. No longer do you need to guess whether the markdown syntax is right or wrong. See More
In services such as Gitlab and GitHub repositories are not grouped by default. When doing other than open source software development, however, we generally have at least backend and front-end in separate repositories that both connect to the same project. In Deveo, repositories always belong to a project and share the same Wiki and Issue tracking space, which makes it easier to find the project specific information. See More
Deveo supports using multiple authentication scenarios. You may use Deveo local user database for simple usage. You can authenticate Deveo against your organization's centralized user directory (LDAP, AD) and you can even integrate it with an SAML2 based single sign-on service. See More
In addition to Git, Subversion and Mercurial repositories, you can host WebDAV based binary repositories in Deveo. WebDAV is a technology that allows you to set up private dropbox type repositories where you can simply drag-and-drop files through OSX finder for example. It's convenient way to store binary packages, project documentation, specifications and more. See More
Deveo can be set up in three different modes: combo, where you have everything on one server, high-availability, where you have separated database server, and cluster, where you have multiple web nodes serving the load. The cluster setup has been field-tested with thousands of concurrent users. See More
Although the self-hosted version is completely free and unlimited, it's not open source. It's proprietary license is filled with errors and it's open to a lot of interpretations in the future. For example: IF YOU DO NOT OWN THE SOFTWARE, THEN DO NOT DOWNLOAD, INSTALL, COPY OR USE THE SOFTWARE. Should be: You further acknowledge that title and full ownership rights to the Software will remain the exclusive property of BigHit and/or its suppliers, See More
The design is minimalistic and based on today's standarts on material design. It uses colors which are pleasing to the eye and displays the information in an ordered way. The main view shows the latest activity sorted in a chronological order, displaying commits and pushes. Every repo has it's own view, on the top there's the repo's name and a dropdown which displays the current branch with the ability to change to another branch or to create a new one. On the right there's a vertical menu with links to add a new file, show the history or to download the current repository. See More
