Complete agreement here, I don't think anyone runs Trac with anonymous editing
turned on anymore. You'd want people to learn a little bit about the LedgerSMB
development process before creating meaningful tickets or contributing patches
in the proper format.

If it's made crystal clear for a newbie how to 'svn diff' a working copy and
attach to their ticket, lots of users can feel like they're contributing
without requiring svn commit access.

Rather than an automated signup, I'd encourage a page with contact info for
requesting trac access, and direct them to read other pages with ticket
reporting guidelines, patch creation guidelines, component definitions, etc.
