Trac reminds me of Oracle

I just finished getting a trac installation up on my site, you can find projects here. And, while I love Trac, the install process just reminded me of Oracle. It took several hours, had a bunch of dependencies, and to get it to work the way I wanted it required several more hours of customization. Granted, if you need an "enhanced wiki and issue tracking system" that has integration with subversion and works pretty well, Trac is tough to beat. But getting it running on a slightly older system was no easy task. If they want that tool to become more widely used the developers are going to have to fix the installation issues and create some type of an automated installer. Of course, I really have no right to complain considering I haven't written a single line of code for the project.
