What are the different project types?

in JIRA 7.3 server, when I create a project I am presented with 6 options.

  1. Scrum software development
  2. Basic software development
  3. Kanban software development
  4. Project management
  5. Process management
  6. Task management

What are the ramifications of each choice?

What workflows, permissions, etc. will result from each of these 6 options?

I have checked the "documentation" here: https://confluence.atlassian.com/jiracoreserver073/creating-a-project-861255642.html

It does not document the options.  It provides one example for how to create a project, a project named "Dragon Design Tees".

Any documentation on these 6 options would be remarkably useful when faced with deciding which option to select.  Please, someone tell me that I'm just blind, and I'm missing the documentation page that describes these options!

Found half of the answer here:   "Business" projects:

https://confluence.atlassian.com/jiracoreserver070/project-types-and-workflows-777015800.html

 

Also, I'm guessing that Scrum software development and Kanban software development are similar except for sprints (i.e. Scrum is a template for using sprints and kanban is a template for managing tasks on a board with periodic releases). 

 

Still looking for information on "Basic software development". 

Pages like these (or one page with this data side-by-side), but for all 6 options would be a welcome addition to the 7.3 documentation.

Task Management

Project Management

Process Management
