#3276 closed enhancement (duplicate)

RSS author default domain

Internal Changes:


RSS author fields currently do not work unless a user sets their email address (due to an RSS requirement for email addresses?)

It would be extremely useful to have a trac.ini setting, in much the same vein as smtp_default_domain in version 0.10dev that would add a default domain to usernames, and use that for the author field (Reference #2245 for an alternative).

… or may be make the smtp_default_domain not restricted to notification, but generalize it to any email address in Trac space ?

Would there be some use cases where a (default) domain would be different for ticket notification and RSS news ?

I'm not sure, but I think that the smtp_default_domain is never exported publicly. If we use it in a RSS feed, it suddenly will, so I imagine that this might not be desired sometimes.

Anyway, I think it's better to use a more explicit option name, like [notification] rss_default_domain. I think it's OK to reuse the notification section here, as RSS is also a kind of notification. Most of the mail notification options are prefixed with smtp_, so there won't be a confusion.

Milestone: 0.100.11

As there's no big enthusiasm for the idea, let's post-pone this to milestone:0.11

comment:4 by Emmanuel Blot, 15 years ago

I think it is fair to postpone it to 0.11, as adding default values may be a new source of new bugs.

I'm ok with the rss_default_domain option, although I do not think at the moment of a hidden RSS domain with a public SMTP domain. Is there a use case for this?

Btw, this ticket is a duplicate of #2639.

Here's what I propose: use the smtp_default_domain for that, until someone shows a use-case where it would be better to have a different setting…
