It's a small 8-guy, Linux-based operation that develops web services for financial transactions. All of our source control is done via RCS, code reviews and bug-tracking are non-existent, and testing is done by ourselves. I would like to submit a proposal to my boss to set up a serious software development platform with Subversion, JIRA, et. al. as well as good development practices. Given that it can be done with OSS tools, what does the Slashdot community think are the strongest arguments I can present to my boss?
