It would be nice to see a keywords field for wiki pages, same as the one for tickets. This list of manually chosen keywords can serve multiple purposes:

  • for searching and ranking, grouping, …
  • to automatically generate the "See also" list of links at the bottom of a page, listing all other pages that share 1 or more of the keywords. Currently this seems to be done manually, so if a wiki page changes such that it should not be related anymore, then one would have to hunt down and change all other pages that "See also" to it.

It's a neat idea though… every 'resource' in trac (2.0+) could be 'taggable/keywordable' a'la del.icio.us … that'd be pretty cool

In the TracObjectModelProposal, the specific object fields and custom fields management logic would be promoted from the Ticket module to the generic Module.

Implementation of #695 in this model could be done in several ways, depending what the consensus says about a keywords field:

  • if it is generally seen as being not that important, a trac administrator could nevertheless add that field very easily for his own trac environment by creating a keywords custom field for Wiki objects
  • if it is seen as a good idea for the wiki pages in general, the field could be made a specific field of the Wiki object (adding it to the wiki table)
  • …one could even consider that the keywords field is so important that it should be attached to any Trac object (adding it to the trac_object table)

Leaving the porn spam in the DB doesn't reflect well on the trac developer's care and loving of their DB… :)

You can also try the TagsPlugin to do part of this.

Replying to mario at ruggier.org:

… to automatically generate the "See also" list of links at the bottom of a page, listing all other pages that share 1 or more of the keywords.

This could probably be done by a generalization of the TicketQuery macro, although that wouldn't be trivial: it should be the union of matches for each of the existing keywords. We probably need a query language for that, maybe derived from Python expression like Genshi does?

distinct(x for x in resources('wiki:*') for k in self.keywords if k in x.keywords)
