Yes, its a little tough, but Trac's Trac is at http:// So this is a good place to start:

Basically, there is a list of component extension points that you can  
implement (like Interfaces or Hooks in other languages).   So a plugin  
can get a chance to run code on every page load, ticket change, wiki  
rendering, whatever.

And yes, its all Python (v2.5 in our case).

Thanks for filing the tickets
