Yes. At some point in the (near) future, we will migrate all of the
bug reports from SourceForge over to Trac, so that we get Subversion/
Trac integration. For example, when committing a fix for a Trac
ticket, one can write "Fixes #39" in the Subversion log message.
Subversion/Trac will automagically close ticket #39 and cross-
reference that Subversion commit with the Trac ticket.

Not to Trac, no. Trac is great for collaboration among developers,
but it does not make a very appealing user-centric site. There are
other plans for the Boost web site, but I'm not in charge of that.

Trac is *wonderful*. Very highly recommended.
