I already have trac, and some integration code that pulls the current 
tickets out of there via RSS and displays it in wordpress, and some more 
code that generates  download links from an automatically updated YAML 
file,  and a lot of other stuff that I dream at night and code while 
sleeping, and I also use bazaar-ng instead of svn; while I can push to 
svn repositories brom bzr, I'd like to be able to only (automatically) 
publish metadata to the plugins directory and be able to see stats, 
comments, ratings, etc. I also currently have enough spare time to help 
with the design and implementation if needed ;)
