Thanks for explanation. Makes sense, I agree with your decision.

I don't have a problem with slow development, but the current
version is probably not good enough to maintain it for some
years. I'm optimistic, that in some months or so 1.6.x will
be released, which should be fine. I'm planning to backport it
to Debian 11, so that users still can install trac easily.

I don't object.  Typically I am against releasing knowingly not
ready-to-ship software.  If one of the maintainers comes up with a
reasonable argument against this view, then we should listen to it.

I do not think that slowing down of development is reason serious enough
to remove a package which is otherwise fine. Or are there other reasons
that I am not aware of?
