I think this sounds pretty sane. Getting approved for trac should
simple as having the CLA complete, or something similar. I think
its a good
policy discussion to see if we want to involve the CLA for project
I know its stifled some of the work in Kadischi according to some
users that would like to contribute but don't want to go down the
Also Trac can be used pretty easily in anonymous mode.
Thinking about it some more (now that I realized it's in the context
of hosting projects) - you're going to want to have a separate
account system group for each hosted project.
I don't know whether it's the CLA or something else, but you should
work with RH Legal to make sure that there is some sort of legal
agreement in place between the project contributors and Red Hat to
define the relationship.
