The milestones and categories etc also need to be updated in the trac.
They still refer to Fedora 14 :P

Pingou pointed out that infra doesn't need to do anything. The trac
admins need to follow the steps listed here to enable it:

Like I said above. The milestones and components etc need to be updated
in the trac before we can start using it for these purposes :)

I noticed that the marketing trac does not seem to have fedmsg
integration either. You can't really have badges without fedmsg
integration as far as I know. Another ticket filed:


Hopefully we'll have fedmsg working for us in a few days. We can then
file tickets for marketing badges too.
