We do this in the most simple way that we can. We lay out a project in  
the wiki using tabbed-sections describing each stage and what is  
needed. We have a simple indicator of the status of each project in a  
summary table (we could use a graph to make it visually more exciting  
but really only have the one project Gantt chart developed with the  
excellent GanttProject in our proposals to our clients) and then  
simply write the details of bugs etc that are still outstanding; when  
a bug is closed, its removed from the outstanding issues tab to the  
done tab. We link in separate pages for related work so have an easy  
reference when preparing for release.

The only thing that we don't use the Wiki for is tracking time and  
issues from customers.

No automated workflow. No project planning software.
