Not only trac, but also the repository at
<https://svn.inf.ethz.ch/svn/lecturers/a2/> seems to be gone.

There seems to be an old (2015) copy of it at
<https://github.com/btreut/a2>, but unfortunately without history.

If anyone has an svnrdump of the repository (with history), or can get
it from the people who maintained trac and/or the repo, and needs help
converting the history for importing into GitHub (or GitLab or
elsewhere), I can certainly help with that conversion.

Would be a shame for the history of this interesting piece of software
to be lost forever.

(The certificate for the community repository at
<https://www.ocp.inf.ethz.ch/svn/ocp/> seems to be expired since 2016,
but when ignoring the certificate warning it is still possible to dump
the repository. But compared to the A2 repository, there is not much in
that repository - svnrdump is about 40MB uncompressed.)
