Simon will help you out, though he is tied up right now.  GHC's trac was majorly spammed yesterday, so I think he may have switched off guest access

| Subject: Login problems with trac
| I am having difficulty logging in to GHC's trac. The situation is this:
| 1. I'm pretty sure I used to log in with username "greenrd" to file bugs
| (at least, that's what Firefox's password manager tells me!). That no
| longer works. I get the message below.
| ------------------------------------------------------------------
| Permission Denied
| To create tickets or edit the wiki, please login with username guest,
| password guest.
| TICKET_CREATE privileges are required to perform this operation
| TracGuide — The Trac User and Administration Guide
| ------------------------------------------------------------------
| 2. I cannot log in with username "guest" using Firefox 1.5 on my
| office machine. I just get the same message, when I click "login". This
| occurs even after I have cleared my web browser's cache. Maybe I need
| to do something else other than clear the cache?
| 3. I have been able to log in once as a guest *and* create a ticket -
| but only on Firefox 2, on my office machine, which is not behind a
| proxy.
| 4. Strangest of all, I have not been able to log in as a guest using
| Firefox 2 on my dorm machine which is behind a proxy - even though
| Firefox is *not* automatically supplying a username and password! When I
| attempt to login as guest, I get redirected to
| http://hackage.haskell.org/trac/ghc and I don't seem to be logged in
| - a "login" link is still there, instead of a "logout" one.
| This is all rather confusing. I have not figured out what is going on
| here.
