trac has some good features and some bad ones too:

It's UI is poor because it hides things like "new ticket" unless you're
logged in.

It has no protection against mid-air collisions.

If you hit the back button or a link by mistake, you can't go back to
the previous page and have your painstakingly entered comment still be
there.

yadda yadda.

It's not that it's doing things right, it's just too cost prohibitive to
create something else to do the same things in the same predictably
wrong way (:


That's actually pretty funny when compared to the reaction I get here to
comments regarding API and functional changes in fedora itself.

But, lots of people like trac these days.

or if you edit the perms to allow anon users to add tickets.

i think the point was from a UI standpoint...even if you want people
to login before letting their ticket in the system..its still a good
idea to expose the new ticket button even if the new ticket button
then throws you to a login/registration screen.
