Ok, that's close enough to a majority :)

Auke, can you please take care of locking the PT down so that only
logged-in users can access it?

I would agree.  In practice most "light weight feedback" will be via the
help at support.osgeo.org email address rather than as proper tracker bug
reports.  The overhead to tracker bug reports is already quite high even
when logging in is not required.  So locking down guest permissions such
that one has to be logged in to submit tracker requests should be fine.
