I just came across an eclipse based project name Mylin.
Its basically a project/task managment system tightly integrated with the version control and your IDE.
So you enter a task named "Add an undetected backdoor to kernel" and it will automatically create a proper branch for it in the backend VCS(git supported) and will manage its lifecycle.
Its basically what i had hoped teamgit will be one day but never came around to finish it (or even start in the direction).
Good to see there is now an alternative (serisouly? java based?).
