I can put you in touch with the IUOSL and OSUOSL people. A big part of this
job consists of "figuring out what to do," so you not knowing what to do
is part of the game, so to speak.

A number of us deal with IUOSL from time to time. I think the OSUOSL
interaction has mostly been me and Renée.

The website, meaning It probably depends what you
mean by "managing..." but in any case I don't think I know who's doing
it, and I'm not sure it's relevant to the bug tracker migration.

The moderators and maybe a few others have admin privileges on the Trac
instance via its web interface. For lower-level control, you have to
deal with Dong-Inn Kim, the IUOSL sysadmin.
