I was looking at the changes in 0.11. in trac and I found a trac
commandshell (I just found it, I didn't try it out, the google code
source is very recent)


Also the trac instance of edgwall.org has ticket query by last
modified date. So, in comparing ticket systems the current trac
release and not 0.10.2 should be compared to the alternatives
