Ouch, oh my that's a bolt from the blue, thanks for emailing! I had no
idea this was really on the cards, just assumed it was some background
noise/chatter from a few folks who never liked using trac.
Personally I've ignored Launchpad as I don't have time to burn on yet
another 'lets try some other misc thingamajig' cycle. FWIW, will
likely ignore Launchpad for a number of months more even if we

Not to my liking, but if some really smart/committed folks are willing
to do the work, have it well tested, say this is really worth the
pain, and don't mind some folks ignoring the move for a few months...

this is a good idea, and how the move benefits us.
