I would like to note that this migration has now finished, and you can now log in via GitHub. Legacy logins have been disabled, and previous admin accounts (except for a current handful) have been revoked in the name of minimising our security surface; if you once had access to our Trac and would like to still use it, please let me know what your GitHub user account is, and I can set those permissions back up.

If you've ever had your password eaten by our Trac instance, had your comment rejected by spambayes, or seen the amount of effort it takes removing random nulls from our htpasswd files, rejoice! With https://github.com/twisted-infra/braid/pull/192 , we are moving our Trac instance to log in using GitHub OAuth. This should mean we solve the issue of keeping passwords (making you and us more secure), being able to turn off the spam filter (as we don't have anonymous ticket submittal, and github is better at catching spammers than we are), and hopefully cause less ongoing issues with passwords suddenly not working.
What this means for you is that your username and password will no longer work for logging into our Trac, you will need to authorise your GitHub login to access it. This means that you may have another username, please contact me privately and I will see what I can do about migrating any ticket histories over, if you feel like it is needed.
