#1025 closed enhancement (duplicate)

Description (last modified by Christopher Lenz)

Where multiple projects are stored in the svn repository:


it would be nice if Browse Source could link directly to the top of each within the repository, rather than always linking to the top level.

Perhaps I'm missing something, but I couldn't find how to configure it to do this.

I'm not so concerned with multiple repositories, but multiple source trees within the one repository. We are already using multiple trac databases, but sharing a single svn repository (as we don't want the overhead of one repository per project). This works fine, except for the minor inconvenience I'm describing below.

My suggestion is merely that instead of the Browse source linking from




and then always having to click on ProjectA to get to


to get to where I wanted to be, that it be possible to link there directly.

If I understand you correctly this is the same as #586, right?

That sounds more like it, yes.

(We are actually evaluating trac on a pilot project (consisting of 5 subprojects) and I'm thinking ahead to how we might roll it out to the rest of R&D.)

We may actually go the multi-repository route after all, but not divide each into subprojects. But that's what pilot projects are for, to discover the right granularity for your purposes.

many thanks.
