My limited experiences with Trac have never been great. It is slow and prone to failures. I have extensive experience with Redmine and can attest to its responsiveness and functionality. A co-worker has done conversions to Redmine from other issue trackers, though not from Trac, so I know such is possible and I might be able to offer some helpful information should Boost choose to make that transition.

I think the other message reporting on the limited functionality of git issue tracking relative to Trac sufficiently kills that option, so any Trac replacement must be found elsewhere.
