Description (last modified by Christian Boos)

pls add support for clearcase and a way to port existing projects that are currently using clearquest (i.e., dump the clearquest db into sqlite in a format that trac can use).

Thanks.

Status

Adding ClearCase support to Trac or writing tools to help migrating away from CC/CQ to Trac is certainly possible, but is not part of the scope of the Trac project. See comment:6 and comment:12.

Please don't add another "me too" here, only update this ticket when you'd like to announce the availability of a plugin or migration tool. Thanks.

Version: 0.8.40.9.4

Not sure if this is the right place to "vote" for this feature … but I'd like to see clearcase support too (ideally w/ ClearQuest migration tool).

There is AFAIK no wiki that supports linking to clearquest or just clearcase, this would be pretty awesome.

Resolution: wontfix
Status: newclosed

As support for VersioningSystemBackend has been made more modular, this could now be implemented as a plugin (even more so after the upcoming VcRefactoring).

As there's little chance that the TracTeam will work on that, I think we can close the ticket as won't fix. However, if such a plugin gets written, it would still be nice to mention it on this ticket.

Another reason for reopening this ticket (in case such a plugin gets written) would be to request specific changes in the version control layer, to enable or improve support for that system.

I'd love to see support for a ClearCase backend! CC provides the CM functionality we need, but if Trac could sit on top and let us reference version information and correlate source with tickets, that would be awesome!

I figured I'd let me voice be heard too. I've love to see some integration with clearcase/clearquest and trac.

Oh voting? Yes, well our linux based organization uses Clearcase and Python where we can, so count us in as hoping for Clearcase support.

Use the voting links on the top-right.

I really don't think that ClearCase will ever supported with Trac.

Clearcase is outdated, provides very poor libraries that only run on some hosts, is a commercial product but poorly supported, etc.

At best, it could be implemented a plugin, I really don't see such an error-generating product being officially supported.
I don't think any Trac developer will spend weeks trying to support this outdated SCM. Do not expect too much from this ticket, even with a high vote count.

Too much work to support an obsolete commercial product. Finally, it's a pre-changeset SCM system which would not fit right into the Trac repository model.

Your best bet is probably to pay Rational/IBM a lot of money to make a plugin for it. At the very least someone would need to be willing to pay for licenses for the people working on it (Trac core team or otherwise).

This is not true. ClearCase supports changeset in the form of baselines.

I think there are still more Corp. working with CC/CQ now. But, if Trac support muti-projects and figure out some way transfer CQ data into Trac, it's exciting. ohh,my wishes come?
