I'll be more careful how I express myself in future. I'm not good at lurking
quietly, will try harder. ;)

Understood. I don't necessarily have the skills to implement it, but I'm
confident that DeMuDi will be able to provide the information. Any system
that worked with the Trac Ticket system could be applied to projects with
alioth accounts, surely? Really I just need to know what we can do from this
end to minimise the amount of work it would take to implement such a thing.
I can see that it's going to take me a while to get up to speed on all these
issues. Thanks for your clarifications.
