FYI, I've successfully setup integration from my 
mail agent (Mutt) and all of the OSGeo trac instances
using Cartman. Detail are here:


The referenced script could be used to integrate to other mail agents.

It's much easier to set such gateway locally than it would be to
setup a mail-to-trac service on the OSGeo machines as it removes any
need to implement an authentication method for incoming mails.

Of course it's more work for users, who have to set things up
themselves on each machine they read mails from, but it requires
zero intervention from SAC.

Shall you really want to be able to use trac via email and find
this method too complicated, please make your voice heard
(and time spent) here:


Long live the OSGeo infrastructure !
