Change Management/Control

Hi guys. I know a lot of you work in a development environment and I've been racking my brain looking at google and freshmeat to see if I can find some sort of change management software.

What I am looking for is some simple web based application where let's say a developer would schedule a 'code push' to our live servers, this scheduled task would then get emailed to the 'management team' for approval. The email would include a link back to the webapp where the team could then approve or deny the request, if approved all is fine and done with, if denied a reason must be given and the change is now on hold.

I worked at a large hard drive manufacturer before, and we used something like that for all network changes. It made things nice to know in advanced when other networks I was connected to were going to make a change to their routers.

It would be nice to have the same type of system where I am informed when a change is about to take place that could bring our production site down.

Thanks for your input..

We used remedy at my old job, but for a small start-up that's very tight with cash I can't justify getting it.. I was hoping for something open source. :)

Well, I installed it.. now I gotta mess with their ldap support because there's no way I'm creating 30 accounts and getting back to the multi-username, multi-password environment I've tried so hard to get away from.. :)

Looks nice so far though.. the trick will be getting people to use it..

No one likes building the non-sexy open source stuff...

Achievo is decent though, and you of course can add to it if you don't like something...

Yeah.. my php skills are about as good as yours.. so why don't we collaborate on that.. I'm sure that by the turn of the century we might get past the good'ol <?php part and maybe have some code in there.. dork!

Lucky for me, we do have a really good programmer that might help me out with this one.. he helped me tweak MediaWiki so it would authenticate via AD a few weeks ago.. if only he had more time available.. heh..
