#3447 closed enhancement (wontfix)

[patch] Email Notification: Local users, Reply-To, Message-Id

Reported by: tuttle@… Owned by: Jonas Borgström
Priority: normal Milestone:
Component: ticket system Version: 0.9.6
Severity: trivial Keywords: notification email
Cc: tuttle@… Branch:
Release Notes:
API Changes:
Internal Changes:


Patch components:

1) I use Trac on Linux system, where I use UNIX usernames for web auth. With this patch and new boolean configuration option, my users do not have to fill-in their e-mail address to be notified (they're concated automatically for them).

2) Reply-To header is added to message only when reply-to configuration option is given (for nicer e-mail displaying).

3) 'trac.' is prepended to Message-Id for quick distinguish in maillog.

So far, patch is unix specific (uses module pwd).

Thanks for consideration,

Component: generalticket system

Some comments:

  • As long as it is platform-specific, there are few chances that the patch get merged. It would prevent Trac from running on other platforms (Windows, …)
  • Further changes in the 0.9.x branch are now mostly for security fixes. It is unlikely that new enhancement/features get merged into this branch. 0.10 is due soon, so non-security patches would better fit this upcoming release.
  • I'm not sure to understand the call to pwd.getpwnam(), as you do not make use of the results (?)
  • Notifications for 0.10 have been reworked, and a feature that looks like the fallback email option is already available.

Replying to tuttle@sandbox.cz:

1) I use Trac on Linux system, where I use UNIX usernames for web auth. With this patch and new boolean configuration option, my users do not have to fill-in their e-mail address to be notified (they're concated automatically for them).

notification.use_short_addr exists for that: See TracIni.

This is a duplicate of #395

Keywords: notification email added
Summary: Email Notification: Local users, Reply-To, Message-Id (patch)[patch] Email Notification: Local users, Reply-To, Message-Id

No, it is not a duplicate of #395.

comment:5 by Emmanuel Blot, 14 years ago

Well, either the ticket is about a patch, and should be closed as wontfix because the patch will never get merged (several issues, and not aligned on a supported Trac release), or the ticket is about missing features, and I do not think changing the summary was really required in this later case.

I think it should be closed.

Resolution: wontfix
Status: newclosed

Agreed, closing.

To tuttle@…: please have a look at the existing notification topics, and see if you can contribute to other topics (e.g. point 1. is somewhat related to #1359, although more general)
