Got it, there is no post-commit hook on Sourceforge. Either you can add
  trac-admin $ENV repository resync 
via cron or we need to migrate the sourceforge svn to our own hosting.
For now I’d say add the job to cron every 15 minutes or so.

This is now connected with the maintainers password file on „web“.
