Installation issue. Please re-read the TracInstall documentation or post to a message to the MailingList if you have trouble installing Trac.

Summary: Trac reports an internal errorImprove Trac error reporting for misconfigured repositories

Here the error was that the repository_type was set to a repository path. It should instead have been something like:

[trac]
repository_dir = /var/svn/svpp
repository_type = svn

I suggest to not delete the ticket as this might help someone having the same error message.

Also in 0.12, I will take a look at making the error messages for the versioncontrol subsystem more helpful, as this is by far the kind of reports we get the most. And it will get even worse with the multirepos support if nothing improves on that topic.

Tentatively scheduling this for 0.11 if there's positive review.

As said above, this error is by far one of the most common support request, so getting more detailed help message would be very useful.

Still, there's no magic in there and it won't tell exactly how one has managed to mess up the install, only provide useful hints (reporting the actual ImportError, telling to look in the Trac log, etc.).

I've applied the patches in r7435,7436 but I'm leaving the TracMercurial patch for you Christian since I can't really test it myself.

Mercurial related patch applied in [7592] for 0.11 and [7593] for multirepos.

In [7592], I also took care that the plugin still works with 0.11.
