Sorry, I was assuming the things you sent to the list were relevant for
the subscribers. What you are doing locally on your machine is, of
course, your business.

Possibly. In any case it's a problem in Trac that should be solved
together with Trac upstream.

I do not know how privoxy works. If this uses some global filter rules,
please get in touch with the maintainers of these filter rules yourself.
Otherwise, adding an exception for trac.macports.org should be

GitHub allows 3rd party applications to use their login service, which
is what we are doing. See https://developer.github.com/v3/oauth/. Our
servers do not serve the GitHub login page, and we never see your GitHub

In a nutshell, we redirect a user to a special URL at GitHub and pass an
application ID and a nonce. That user logs in to GitHub and GitHub sends
them back to our webserver with a HMAC using a previously shared key
matching the application ID so we know the login was successful. It's a
little more complicated than that, but the OAuth standard should answer
all your remaining questions.
