I'm completely fail to see why a Trac server shouldn't scale up at least as
well as the SF-hosted Python tracker...  (I mean, we're talking about one
project, not 116,757 ...)

I cannot find the message right now, but I'm quite sure that someone
recently suggested that the right way to try out a new tracker was to
use it for the Python 3000 activity.

my suggestion is to ask the python-hosting folks if they're willing to set
up a free pyk3 account:


if this works well for Python 3000, the next step would be to ask them
if they're willing to host the 2.X tracker as well (and optionally the SVN
archive, as well).  PSF might not be the Mozilla Foundation, but I'm sure
there's enough funds to pay for suitably large commercial account.
