Sounds good.  I don't know a lot about drupal, does it include  
basically wiki and forum type capabilities?

I must caution you that I've seen a lot of talk of "Trac is terrible,  
we need to move away from it" in a couple of lists, like the Twisted  
list.  See the thread called "trac's reliability" here:

thread.html

Beyond that, sounds good.
