Unfortunately RT is non-trivial to set up on DreamHost (see
http://wiki.dreamhost.com/Request_tracker), we don't want to do this
since it'd be a nightmare to maintain (shame, since I'm used to
working with it too).

However, they do offer dotProject and Trac, I've never used either one
and I'm not sure how well they'll do for this use case but if we want
an issue tracking system it would be great to have someone look at
them. If neither one of these work we'd probably need to look into
alternate hosting for RT where it would be easier to maintain.
