GitHub is rapidly becoming the Distributed Software Code Management (DSCM) of choice for software dev teams. While it offers limited, built-in work item tracking capabilities, teams can easily outgrow the feature set. OnTime Scrum provides GitHub integration that allows users to attach change sets to items being tracked in the OnTime system.
With OnTime, it's easy to hook into your team's GitHub repositories and get back to coding and committing. Every time you commit, you add a little bit of item data to the summary, and GitHub will send that data immediately to your OnTime database. From the OnTime app, it's easy to track who committed to items, the amount of work spent on each commit, and even use commits to move items through your workflow.
For OnTime, all you need to do is generate an API key. You can also import your repository's issues, if you only want to track them in OnTime.
Head to the settings for your repository, and go to Service Hooks. Select OnTime from the list, and enter the URL to your OnTime database, as well as your API key. You're all set!

OnTime also supports importing your existing GitHub repository issues directly into your OnTime database, to help you get up and running right away.
OnTime is perfect for teams that have outgrown the built-in GitHub issue tracker feature set.
OnTime also offers the Tortoise plugin, which offers true integration between your Tortoise Subversion code repository and OnTime. While you and your team are updating files and committing changes using TortoiseSVN, you'll be able to link those files to defects, user stories, or tasks within OnTime. This takes place inside of the Tortoise interface without having to launch OnTime.
TortoiseSVN is a free download for Windows only and works with the OnTime Web server.
