When following process specifications most new projects look alike when starting.

It would be useful to add the capability to the trac-admin script to process commands supplied from a file.

My current workaround is to build a script that calls trac-admin multiple times, but it would be much more elegant to have trac-admin read the commands from a file.

trac-admin reads from stdin, so you can pipe your batch to trac-admin, eg.:

echo "milestone rename milestone1 M1
milestone rename milestone2 M2" | trac-admin $TRAC_ENV

You don't even need to use echo, since you can directly pipe a file into the process:

$ trac-admin /path/to/env < trac-commands.txt
