Gitlab is fine. However all the free tooling (Travis, Appveyor,
Coveralls) does not have Gitlab integration, Jenkins does not have
first tier support for gitlab, and all that makes life harder.

Trac's single most important feature for us is its security record:

Compare that to Redmine's:

This is why our ancient Trac (v0.12) still hasn't been compromised,
because nobody here is maintaining it. If that were a Redmine install
it'd have been smashed to bits years ago.

I hence vote to remain on Trac, albeit upgrading to v1.0 would be
nice :)
