The issue tracker and the source control repository are usually very closely
coupled. Hosting the issue tracker somewhere than than the version control might
be confusing, especially if we do not have any control over usernames (as it
would be at GitHub).

Our Trac has some customizations (e.g. the port field and CC button), but we
always wanted more. The maintainer should automatically be notified when the
port field is set, tickets should be closed when a commit messages contains a
"closes #xxxxx" string. We even have scripts ready for some of these, but just
could never deploy them.
