I agree with Frank, the internal part is hidden and not obvious.

Jason, can you elaborate a bit on how what your are suggesting would impact the FDO site?

I'm in favor of merging the drupal site contents into Trac and
making that our face.  I find the current split confusing for
a rather developer oriented thing like FDO.

I'm under the impression that part of the problem is our use of
sqlite backends for Trac and that it is easy to get database
locking issues.  We are contemplating using a real multi-user
database like postgres or ingres for Trac in the future to alleviate
