e) Close trac for new tickets (as we are doing). Provide a script (like Roberts) that automatically transfers issues from trac to github for library maintainers that want to do that. Change the web pages everywhere to only point to github for issues. After a grace period of a few months, turn of trac. Maintainers who care about the old tickets will have moved them, others get rid of all the old and possibly outdated tickets and get a nice clean start.
