Thanks for the suggestion Nicklas.
We also have an hybrod system, but we never enabled
the ability to log into Trac or Gitea with GitHub
credentials (technically possible) to reduce attack

Automatic closing of tickets is currently implemented
by Gitea parsing git commit logs ("Closes #xxx" with "xxx"
beign a trac ticket number).

Having pull requests automatically open tickets could
be useful but sounds complex (the script would need
to tell if a ticket already exists, to avoid duplication)
