My memory was this was actually a strong unaminous consensus. The
only benefits of the current setup of static HTML and Trac is it is
virtually impossible to hack into, and therefore the maintenance cost
is very low - so low we've lost root access because nobody needed
root access for so long. I remember strongly advocating that any
alternative to the existing setup needed support and maintenance
costs factored into the decision matrix, and I had understood that
was exactly what Michael was going to go investigate so he could give
us some options.
