[Twisted-Python] trac / website woes

I hate Trac. Especially the one on twistedmatrix.

- My previous login ("smurfix") seems to suffer from a lost password. The
website does not have an obvious place to request it.

- I tried to create a new login. Reporting a bug with it requires an email
address. The page to enter the email address does not have a Submit button.

- Not entering login data results in an empty page.

On to the real bug; somebody else can enter it into Trac.
Or, even better, fix the source.

It seems that Deferreds are tricky.
