I'm looking for a free (as in free beer) Scrum tool that integrates with private GitHub projects. It should also be hosted, there are a few open source (free software) projects out there but I don't want to spend too much time setting up and maintaining such tools.

Jetbrains has a free plan but only for public projects. Others like Pivotal Tracker are only free for 30 days, but that's not enough time to get a good idea. I'd be ok with it if it were free for one year.

I've used ScrumDo in the past but 20$/month is not an option for a bootstrapping startup project.

Looks like Taiga.io can be a good candidate. It's not as smooth to set up as ScrumDo but it's free as in free software and free as in free software until July 2015, afterwards 3$/month for a small project.

Update based on @chmac's comment.

    Looks interesting, but it's only free for private projects until July 2015, which is more than 30 days, less than a year.

  • I guess things might have been different in 2015, but self-hosting Taiga is free. And it looks nice, but their GitHub integration is quite limited.

Scrumfast.com is a good new resource in case folks are coming here looking for answers to this old question. $4 a month.

  • Can you describe why such program complies with the question?
