Hi Andreas,

DigitalDistrict is doing a good job with hosting the mailing list server, I
have no objections if they want to keep Trac running under a *.typo3.org

Mantis can remember my login, and I'm sure Trac can do so as well. I
personally have no problems with different logins as long as the number of
admin / privileged accounts stays at a reasonable amount.

SQL authentication could also be established through a tunneled connection
from other servers, I'm sure there are technically no restrictions about

I must admit that I don't know Trac good enough yet to be able to argue
about this. I even don't know if my favourite Mantis annoyances are real
bugs or just misconfigurations.

Instead I think we should ask someone who knows each or both products very
well if he can make a comparison of them.

What we need to decide right now is if we want to wait until we can switch
to a complete Trac solution (source code browser + wiki + bugtracker) or if
we introduce these pieces step by step, starting with the SCB which it
seems we all agree about.
