IIUC Alexey was not even able to log into Trac...? But the problem might
be related, yes.

Dunno. One would say Trac is independent from Git, i.e. it should work
just the same no matter whether you use Git or SVN?

Cool, this paradigm switch is great news ;-) But then we should really
adjust the bug reporting information we give to discourage use of the
bug tracker, at least until the issues are sorted out.

Also, IMO the mailing list is much better for discussion as well -- you
get every new message without need to periodically check the tracker (I
imagine there is some mailing notification integrated, but why, when you
could just use e-mail in the first place. And I find writing mails much
more convenient than using a web interface (I don't use webmail BTW,
despite my address suggesting otherwise)).
