#2140 closed defect (fixed)

"trac-admin <env> upgrade" does not upgrade old global macros

Internal Changes:


If a global macro has already been installed by trac-admin during a previous upgrade, then subsequently updated, trac-admin will fail to require an upgrade to the latest version.

This is fiddly and the fix may not be obvious, because you then have to manually delete the .py/.pyc from every Trac environment before again initiating an upgrade.

On a related note, it may also not be obvious to many that installing a global macro will require a trac environment upgrade.

After messing around with this over the last few days, I have found this to be more and more of an annoyance.

The most irritation occurs when you have a mix of global and per-environment macro's, forcing one to manually delete only the global macro's if you wish to upgrade.

I've found the upgrade stuff for wiki-macros rather annoying/irritating myself.

How about we just make the UserMacroProvider use both the local and the global wiki-macros directory to serve macros? That would probably be a lot more intuitive.

That sounds like an excellent idea.
