I really haven't ever used anything other than ViewVC so I don't have
a good basis for comparison.

However, this brings up an interesting (if somewhat offtopic, sorry)
point - if we used Trac, could we integrate our package bugtracking
directly with our repo, so that the issue could associate itself with
the package in SVN?  Would that even be useful?  There was talk about
how flyspray sucked recently, IIRC, so this could be an integrated

Additionally, I've been thinking of unified login stuff recently. Trac
has a plugin for OpenID support[1], and punBB is looking to have a
similar plugin in their 1.3 version[2], so it might be something to
consider - OpenID seems to be gaining lots of traction.
