In my situation, I wanted more than 10 priorities (because we're all corporate and stuff here).

for i in `seq 1 15`; do 
    trac-admin /path/to priority add P$i

results in their order appearing as P1,P10,P2, etc.

Pleaese reference:


to see that it uses a numerically increasing "value" field, but "value" is a text field, so if you do a

select * from enum 
where type='priority' 
order by value

it will not do as one wishes above ten items, since (lexically) 1 and 10 appear next to one another.

In 0.10, you can specify the order of appearance for priorities. This can be done using WebAdmin, or from trac-admin using:

trac-admin priority order <value> up|down
