Reshad already commented that we use the wiki for status tracking in BFD.

The main feature I find helpful in the ietf wiki is that document names
resolve to links to the documents without having to require explicit URLs.
This is a desirable, but not required feature.

The one time I tried to utilize trac for issues, I found it a very awkward
workflow.  Most of our motivation for using it is subsumed in github
tracking for documents maintained there.
