At the company I work at, we've been using Trac to document quite a number of things and it's worked really well— thanks for your hard work! One thing that would be nice to have which is missing is a way to do links to UNC/Network paths in the Wiki. For instance, something like:

[network:\\server\sharename Documentation For Servers]

That way we can document all of the various network paths for installing software, documentation, corporate forms, etc.

Make sense?

Formal version of your suggestion is to use file URL, like file://///server/sharename or file:///c:/temp/foobar.txt

Best of all, this is already supported - only thing you need is support from browser client you're using.

And with 0.9(b2) you can write such an extension yourself if you want to - but you will just endup to rewriting your "niceform" path.

Problem with this approach is that it's client dependant.

I'll still leave this open.
