There are a ton of issues going on with trac that need to be resolved. The two major ones are:

  • The ticket commenter emails people who aren't a trac user. This may require a custom modification.
  • The always_email setting is taking things too literally and always sending emails even if it shouldn't.
  • The Git plug-in consistently spins, floods the jail with processes then the site dies.
  • Frequent, strange and random crashes.
    • This one is not a huge deal since it's just that request process users won't even notice when this happens.

Upgrading trac is a weeklong project usually I will start preparing for it and update here.

If anyone has any feature requests now is the time to do it!

Milestone: 5.1
Resolution: fixed
Status: assignedclosed

The first 2 items are fixed which were the most important.

The last two will only be fixed by a major upgrade which is a lot of work. There's a lot of custom glue we work and it will be a rewrite for most of it for 1.3. Not a bad thing since 1.3 is far superior to 1.2

I'll call this fixed and open a new ticket for the upgrade when the time comes I've made so many changes this ticket is no longer relevant.

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
