It seems that we don't need a cvs-like software at all. (?)

I agree that the tracking at gforge is ugly. But if we only need a
bugtracker and/or feature request tracker, I'd rather hack it myself
and not have $SOFTWARE with $EVIL_DEPENDENCIES installed. (Example:
Trac needs swig version < 1.3.22, I have 1.3.24 installed.)
