Trac Migration

Oh hey, awesome! I gotta say I haven't been paying attention, so this
is a bit of a pleasant surprise.

For bitlbee we're also using trac and we're also very unhappy with it,
and have no one to do the required sysadmin work. From time to time we
get users on irc complaining about not being able to submit issues at
all because the captcha is broken.

So, hell yeah, I want in. I don't even care if the migration mangles
things. Literally anything that can accept tickets is an improvement

- What would it take for us to move our trac instance to this?
- Do I need some sort of admin-level access in the youtrack instance?
- Should I just send you a tarball of the trac environment?

Wilmer also gave me the OK and is similarly happy about the idea.
