Trac to gitlab migration notes

This section will track the effort of migrating from Trac to Gitlab.

The original question for this effort was the following: should we continue to patch Trac until we love it, or should we look around for a tool that might be able to do what we need? Is Trac the tool we expect to use for the next 3-to-5 years? Will the project continue to be maintained?g

The first step of this project consisted in identifying which requirements we have as Tor community for our wiki/bug tracking tool.

We conducted a survey with the objective to help us identify possible Trac alternatives and carefully plan the forthcoming migration process. The survey is still accessible at:  https://storm.torproject.org/shared/mgNGJd30HpN8IL5XvoC4QhloRgDGLcpr6VzR89byQsZ

The result of the survey were summarised in the following deck: https://dcpayab48nwuot9l9cir.storm.torproject.org/index.html#/

The second step was setting up a testing environment for the Network team to try Gitlab and see if it is something they can work with.

The Network team was a natural candidate as they have been using gitlab.com on their own for a while now, so they were eager to try a tor.tpo Gitlab and see it would make their lives easier.

Also note that a larger discussion of this project happens in #30857.
