Thanks a lot for your work guys.

Try my best.

Still think it would be nice to add a template to "new ticket" on trac
and advise them to use the link under Help->About which should use a
template and gather system information like the template-report does it
right now.

By the way, If you mark a ticket as duplicate, the reporter +
commentators should be added to the remaining ticket cc:-list.
(Enhancement for trac).
