Same opinion here, better squashing bugs than collecting bugs, and I
have to say that I like trac much better than I was used to like
roundup, so I don't like the idea of going back to roundup (also if we
don't have the complete DB it is not going to work anyway).

Having a RO roundup may sure help (with write permission rights to
developers in case they want to close/inspect them), also consider
that many issues were imported (manually) by Carl into trac, but given
the lack of manpower I'd say that's not high priority.
