When one is expected to close the ticket? When fix is checked into devel or
when fix is merges into master? Former is better for developer who can put
the trac number into commit message and be done with it. Later is better
for users, since there always will be some gap between commit and master
merge. Yet it requires more effort/discipline from developer. I am not
convinced which one is better. Maybe we can mark ticket as fixed at commit
time, and make it merged/publically available when fix is merged to master.
Can we tweak trac/svn hooks so that we introduce another state change?

For various reasons, what needs to be done here seriously exceed the volume
of regular maintenance, which I am fine with. Thus the delay. That said I
did ask for help with this work. One person replied and we are working on
making this happen. Now it seems more people are interested, so I can be
somewhat positive on claiming that you should see real process soon.
