Trac> milestone add "Big Beef Releaze"
Trac> milestone rename Big<TAB>
Big Beef Releaze Bigger Broccoli Release

won't work:
Big\ B<TAB>
doesn't expand, (in fact Big\ Beef\ Releaze wouldn't work even if it did complete)
and neither will:
"Big B<TAB>

so you need to manually type the whole thing, really

Well, <TAB> completion comes as a bonus from use of the standard library cmd.py, so unless there's is something to configure on that level to introduce support for words containing space (and at first glance, I don't see what), this is not something we're going to redo at the Trac level.

Propose a wontfix here.

Agreed with wontfix. trac-admin is useful, but this type of thing is easily accomplished using the web side of things as well. Seems like time better spent enhancing that..

Resolution: wontfix
Status: newclosed

I agree. It's a trivial bug, and I didn't realise how much effort it would take to fix. I've marked as wontfix?
