You're right. You need to request a trac account. Once you have been granted a username, then authenticate your trac account via SSH and finally link your public key to it. See the following for details on how to do that. https://doc.sagemath.org/html/en/developer/trac.html#chapter-sage-trac
Note: you can comment on tickets without authenticating through SSH, but if you want to commit code, you will need to do this first. Best, Arpit.
