Description

Parameter file of configuration file [inherit] section has no default value. This leads to 2 problems when migrating a configuration using a global configuration file :

  • trac.ini must be edited for all projects to include this section/parameter, else the global configuration file is ignored.
  • When creating a new project, the global configuration file is not referenced and a lot of parameters are duplicated. This is a step back from 0.10 where trac-admin was detecting parameters in the global configuration file and adding them to project trac.ini commented out.

Among both problems, the second one is the real issue.

IMHO, there are 2 possible solutions :

  • file parameter has a default value matching name used in 0.10 with ability to ignore it using a specific value like none. This may not solve the problem for site wanting to use several global configuration files, depending on the project.
  • Add an option to trac-admin initenv allowing to specify the global configuration file to use. This is probably a more general solution, even if not solving first point which is a one shot issue during the migration.

Replying to jouvin@lal.in2p3.fr:

  • Add an option to trac-admin initenv allowing to specify the global configuration file to use. This is probably a more general solution, even if not solving first point which is a one shot issue during the migration.

This is actually already done in #5651. I'm closing this as duplicate, and please follow up on other ticket if the solution is not working as well as expected.
