I also don't have this problem.  But I know we had a few people who
had local patches back in the CVS and SVN days that they wanted to
carry over, so surely a few people have local stuff in mtn as well.
(I'd hope this is committed, since mtn *is* a DVCS!)

Yes, there are standard hooks for commit mails.  Trac integration was
a pain, as there was no included hook and I had to bisect to find a
working revision of the hook script once I found an external one.  The
trac integration may need some tweaking to get our milestone auto-set
done, but that shouldn't be too much trouble.  My bit with borrowing
from guifications.org is mainly using it as reference to remember what
I set up, since it's been a while.  We'll also surely want this stuff
to be global on pidign.im.  We wanted it per-repo for guifications, as
we have many more repos than we want commit mails and trac integration

No.  We'd have one system user account.  All permissions are
determined by the ssh key in use and the permissions granted in the
