Research isn't what we need.  Performance comparison data is.

Yes, we know that.  Whether it actually achieved that goal or not is a
matter of opinion.

As they'd say in court, hearsay is not admissible as evidence. :-)

Personally I think Trac is a turd.  Their "wiki" syntax is completely
non-standard, their ticket system is underpowered, and their concept
of "milestones" is shaky at best.  I do agree that their source
browser is pretty nice, but I've seen better.  (Doxygen comes to
mind.)  But that's not the point, so I won't say any more on Trac.

Is your mirror offer still open?  Have you gotten one set up?
