To clarify for people who do not know much about the tools mentionned:

  - repo management
  - pull-request/code-review management

 - issue tracking
 - can be combined with other ihntegrated tools from the same company
   to do review and repo management and wiki (most of the time for free)

 - issue tracking
 - wiki
 - forum
 (very close to TRAC features in general)

Phabricator (didn't try it yet, in the process to do so soon):
 - issue tracking
 - wiki
 - repo management
 - (advanced) code review (pre and post commit)
 - patch/pull-request management
 - discussion forum

Although if the main issue is sysadmin skills/time, upgrading TRAC first
might be less expensive.
If I remember correctly, TRAC upgrading process is documented in their wiki
I don't have sysadmin skill and I'm still poor at understanding how linux
works, however I did do several upgrades
some years ago and there was'nt any issue I can remember.
That being said I didn't have a hundred projects to manage...
