I agree that an admin should be necessary. That admin needs to make
a number of decisions:
- what URL the tracker should be available on?
- what mailing list get new issues be sent to? changes to existing
- what From address should the tracker use to send such email?
- what, if any, email address should the tracker use for incoming
  email (such as follow-ups to existing issue)?
  Notice that "None" is an answer that roundup die-hards cannot
  accept: some people strongly believe that the primary value
  of roundup originates from the support for email follow-up.
- what, if any, changes from the standard schema should be
- what people fall into the "developers" category?

I'd be in favour of getting these steps done for the pydotorg
tracker, to see how it works out. I understand that it doesn't
have the data migration issues that bugs.python.org has, so it
should be easy
