I apologise if I've jumped the gun here.
My intent was 2 fold: 1. To find out what trac options we had from SAC, 
and 2. To define what we should do, from the LiveDVD list.
Hence posting to the 2 at the same time.

Feedback from Frank W. on the telascience IRC was
* He was against setting up a new instance of trac, as it requires more 
* He suggested instead that we use the "keyword" free text tag to 
specify release and version.

So if we are to create a new issue, we would set the component to 
"LiveDVD" (set via the pulldown list), and keyword typed as freetext to 
"arramagong_3.0alpha1" (or similar). We can then search for all keywords 
which contain "arramagong_3.0" to get all issues for the 3.0 release.
