As far as I understand, getting a Trac ID is a very manual and vetted
process, and only recommended if you're a significant contributor.

If you don't want any bug reports at all from mortals, sure, limit it to
registered users. Even if the requirements to get an user is relaxed,
you're going to lose a lot of reports.

Userids are normally granted to maintainers and authors of prospective
(“sandbox”) and accepted Boost libraries, people working on the Boost
website, and people contributing significant content to this Wiki.

As a side note, what happened to the discussion on considering
Github-based issue tracking? Did the Boost Cabal (Steering Committee?)
ever say anything definitive on that?
