We figured out that the bounty-thingie is the _only_ thing which is not
supported out of the box by TRAC, yet. However, I believe that for this
bounty-thingie it would be enough to use a custom field where you can mark
issues as bounty-thingie.

There was no word about activating the bounty-thingie any time soon during
the meeting I attended.

That was not discussed at all. But I have shown a possibility in my last
email that we could use mod_auth_mysql to access the fe_users table from
TYPO3.org for the TRAC logins. Which leaves us only with a handfull of
accounts which would need higher priviledges than just submitting an issue.
Which can be done using trac-admin on the shell.

Well, I don't see any huge benefits that could come from the bounty-thingie
compared to consolidating the server infrastructure, user intferfaces login
credentials and so on.
