Redmine is "trac on RoR", but it solves two significant issues over trac:
  - mass edit (e.g. moving things to a new mileston is simple and doable
from the UI)
  - REST API by default, so that we can build simple command line tools on
top of it (this changed since I made the wiki page)

It is a PITA to install, though, at least if you are not familiar with
ruby, and I heard it is hard to manage as well.

IIRC, roundup was suggested by Robert, but it is more of a custom solution
I believe.
