Yes, please. I will not change anything but I guess I'd need to
register in it.

Sure, to send people emails is not what I've asked. So I'm proposing a
workaround that is already adopted by other projects migrated from one
issue server to another. For example just make a quick look into:
Instead of "anonymous" they used "gopherbot" and it looks like:

gopherbot commented on Nov 14, 2009
  "Comment 6 by Yuriy.Shirokov:"
  [original message as citation]

I'm thinking about a following simple algorithm to prepend the messages
of all anonymous with their old account name and spam protected e-mail

for issue in trac.issues():
    for message in issue.messages():
        if message.account_id not in gitlab.accounts()
            issue_num = issue.number()
            msg_num = message.number()
            trac_account = trac.accounts(message.account_id)
            author_name = trac_account.name
            author_email = trac_account.email
            gitlab_msg = gitlab.issues(issue_num).messages(msg_num)
            text = gitlab_msg.body()
            if (author_email):
                text = author_name + 
                       " (" + spam_protect(author_email) + "):\n" +
                text = author_name + " :\n" + text

Maybe something like this is already implemented somewhere:

I'm wondering how big the trac and gitlab databases are, so that I
could download them to debug this algo.

I fear, there are more of these.

Strange, that only gitlab (and perhaps bitbucket) adopt this
restriction for git:// kind of access.
