"Patch Welcome"

"Patch welcome" is a colloquial term to indicate that at least an initial stab at a solution to a ticket would be useful to have developers review the ticket.

For unscheduled tickets, where many "patch welcome" type tickets end up, the requirements are a bit stronger: as no Trac developer has shown interest in making the bug or feature request part of the Trac roadmap, the patch has to be very convincing:

  • well exposed rationale for the change
  • clarity and correctness of the code
  • unit tests, functional tests
  • etc.

See TracDev/SubmittingPatches#Whatisagoodpatch for more details.
