Someone else's time to setup and maintain it.  In particular, it won't
take any time away from any python developer.  Plus it's just a chance
for me to learn.

If someone setups and maintains an instance of Trac, I'd use that too.
 I suppose I could use Roundup on python.org, but I don't know if it's
working.  I've used Roundup before, but it was an old version and
obviously not tailored to python's setup.

Like I said, I won't be prepared to use any new tracker for some time,
at least a couple of weeks.  If people want to setup systems for me to
test out, I'm willing to be a guinea pig.  The only thing I really
care about is what makes my life the easiest.
