Will I get trac activity this way? I assumed not, only svn commits.
However, this way I won't be able to assess activity of maintainer without commit rights.

The other problem with your solution might be the footprint of the repo, especially with all the distfiles. I usually keep only trunk as a local copy. 

The Timeline is actually quite useful, however the queries take ages and &daysback parameter seems to be limited to 90 day. So you need to click through several periods, before you get some idea.
