#3464 closed enhancement (duplicate)

Enable trac to support multiline commit messages

Reported by: viktor@… Owned by: Christopher Lenz
Priority: low Milestone:
Component: version control Version: 0.9.6
Severity: minor Keywords: hooks
Cc: Branch:
Release Notes:
API Changes:
Internal Changes:


Currently trac-post-commit-hook relies on the commit message being passed in the command line. That is a limitation both in size and in number of lines limited to one (at least it appeared so on my (sorry) windows environment - trac received only the first line of the commit message)

Attaching modified post-commit-hook, summary of changes:

  • Add -f, —file to options
  • if -m was not given, look for file given in -f, read all lines into a message, adding newlines.

This makes sure that:

  • all newlines in the message are preserved
  • all keywords in all lines are found.

I've started learning Python just doing this, so I haven't done any error checking (i.e. file exists, anything can be read from it etc.)

All you have to do is modify the svn post-commit script to store the commit message into a temporary file and replace -m message with -f filepath.

Keywords: hooks added

I guess we could get rid of this environment-specific issues if we move the calls to svnlook into the Python script, using the Python SWIG wrappers to access the Subversion repository.
