Keeping the trac instance accessible "for the record" is certainly fine.
But I'd keep it read-only, to encourage everyone to migrate to github.
It's trivial to migrate open issues. Or do we want to wait another ten
years before concluding the migration ?
The same argument holds for the wiki, by the way: I suggest we make the
trac wiki read-only, so whenever someone wants to add or change info, it
should be seen as an invitation to migrate. A few years ago I have
started to migrate a few pages to github. But as long as the trac wiki
isn't read-only, this migration will never conclude...
