Hi Frank,

thanks for setting up trac; I would like to volunteer for the job you

Do you need this up front? I may not be able to deliver complete data 
now, but I guess we will be able to add anything we need as trac grows 
on us.

For a start, trac's purpose might be to replace the bug tracker at 
sourceforge. So here's what I can give you now

user interface

I guess the SVN account names of all committers should suffice. Do you 
have access to a list of these names?

I guess we will add more data as soon as trac is set up. Is that possible?

Thanks again, please let us know,
