I suggest that the SVN mirror and TRAC will be hosted by Punkt.de. Since
TYPO3.org is hosted by Punkt.de already this will make some things easier.
Let's ask Punkt.de if the are willing to offer the server and the needed
bandwidth for this.

I do also suggest that Michael Stucki and myself could be the persons in
charge for coordinating this.

The bugtracking- and bugbusting-team had a meeting during T3DD06 where the
possible usage of the TRAC issue tracker was discussed. The result was that
it is possible to use the TRAC issue tracker because there are no features
missing compared to the features used in MANTIS already. Still, there are a
few things to test before a migration can happen.

SSO will not be possible any time soon, but we could authenticate against
the fe_users table from TYPO3.org using mod_auth_mysql (IIRC). That is one
of the reasons why I suggest to ask Punkt.de if they can provide another
server and the needed bandwidth. Anyhow, the authentication process needs
to be discussed in more detail.

Enabling and disabling of TRAC plugins can easily be done. Which of the
plugins we need / want needs to be discussed.

The server could be configured to use mod_python which is also faster than
using CGI.

I suggest Michael Stucki and myself will prepare a document which describes
the current situation, outlines the options TRAC offers and which of the
options will serve the development of TYPO3 best and shows a list of tasks
which need to be done to use TRAC as a development tool for TYPO3.
