I definitely plan to release more frequently. But seriously... 2.1 was
in October, so was only a little over four months...

Whic seems to be a very similar subset. The ones helping the most with
support are Jan and Lubomir at this point... well, that's the ones I
see. I'm sure there are others in native language forums that I don't
see, like Linus on the Finnish board :-)

I have given in to hat use. And there is a mailing list where you can
get all the trac updates... subsurface-trac - you can sign up via the
list manager :-)

My browser happily remembers my password and my sessions. Not sure why
this isn't possible for you.

I'll look into a plugin to allow users to change their password.

If others want accounts on trac, let me know (but you shouldn't really
need them - most things can be done without an account).

With the addition of the spam plugin the frequency at which spam makes
it onto the site has dropped nicely.
