Yes, that's true.  It seemed very good at the time though and it
integrated well with trac.  Personally I don't see the 3rd-party state
as an issue.

It being implemented in Ruby-on-Rails, which I've /read/ has bad scaling
properties, could be a problem.

I'm also not convinced support for multiple projects is an important
feature.  It could even pose a problem in the future since, depending on
how it's done underneath, it could make migrating a single project off
the site more difficult than tarring up a directory and copy it to its
new home.  I'm somewhat sad to learn trac might be going in that

On the other hand Redmine does look cleaner somehow and I've never seen
a trac site that is as easy to find my way around as www.redmine.org.
