[authz_policy] authz_file should be defined using PathOption

Reported by: Ryan J Ollos Owned by: Ryan J Ollos
Priority: normal Milestone: 1.1.4
Component: general Version: 1.0-stable

Release Notes:

Relative paths for the [authz_policy] authz_file option are resolved relative to the Environment's conf directory, rather than relative to the Environment directory.

API Changes:
Internal Changes:


The example in the documentation for AuthzPolicy shows:

authz_file = conf/authzpolicy.conf

and authz_file is defined:

authz_file = Option('authz_policy', 'authz_file', '',
                    'Location of authz policy configuration file.')

A relative path for authz_file is resolved relative to the environment directory: branches/1.0-stable/tracopt/perm/authz_policy.py@12054:175-17#L166.

On the other hand, PathOption resolves relative paths as relative to the directory of the trac.ini configuration file. It is probably reasonable to expect that authz_file would be relative to the $env/conf directory since it is a configuration file. This would also make the behavior consistent with [trac] authz_file, which uses PathOption.

$ grep -r "PathOption(" teo-rjollos.git/ --exclude-dir=.svn --exclude=config.py --exclude=*.pyc
teo-rjollos.git/tracopt/versioncontrol/git/git_fs.py:    projects_list = PathOption('git', 'projects_list', doc=
teo-rjollos.git/tracopt/versioncontrol/git/git_fs.py:    projects_base = PathOption('git', 'projects_base', doc=
teo-rjollos.git/trac/env.py:    shared_plugins_dir = PathOption('inherit', 'plugins_dir', '',
teo-rjollos.git/trac/web/chrome.py:    shared_templates_dir = PathOption('inherit', 'templates_dir', '',
teo-rjollos.git/trac/web/chrome.py:    shared_htdocs_dir = PathOption('inherit', 'htdocs_dir', '',
teo-rjollos.git/trac/versioncontrol/svn_authz.py:    authz_file = PathOption('trac', 'authz_file', '',

If the change is made, an environment upgrade step will be required to modify the value of authz_file in trac.ini:

  • Strip conf/ when path begins with conf/.
  • Transform other relative paths to absolute paths or prefix with ...
