[Systems] trac breakage

I was going to bring this up at the last SLOB meeting but we ran out of
time. We have serious problems with b.sl.o regarding user management. While
I can assign new users unmoderated status, I cannot actually enable their
accounts since I cannot access the user page (it is so full of spam users
that it times out before loading -- even though Sam increased the timeout a
few months back). The verification by email is broken, hence the need to
find a different way to validate.

My recommendation is that we look into alternatives to trac. We can keep
the old system running as an archive, but it seems time to move on. (I've
been told -- although I have not confirmed -- that trac is not regularly
maintained upstream any more, which would be all the more reason to move

Does the sysadmin team have any recommendations? Any thoughts from the
devel community?
