#902 closed defect (fixed)

Log messages don't strip leading whitespace

A lot of people around here, out of some weird reflex, enter one or two blank spaces or sometimes even entire lines on their commit messages, specially when doing it with a text editor on the UNIX command line.

I wonder if there's any harm in having Trac ignore leading whitespace while displaying the log messages on the Revision Log screen. As of now, all the entries with blank lines leading to the actual entry appear as "…" on the Revision Log screen.

I've been trying to fix it myself using util.lstrip, but not knowing much about python, I wonder what is the magical argument for "all whitespace".

Any ideas?

The magical argument is none, i.e. omitting the argument.

Resolution: fixed

The display of the log message in the revision log (and in the timeline) is now working as expected in this ticket, since the new util.shorten_line implementation made in [1561].
