milestone URL persistence
|Reported by:||Owned by:|
I've been struggling with Milestone URL persistence. It a maintenance nightmare changing milestone names. Our implementation of Trac oversees a large number of disparate university groups each with multiple milestones. Each group has their own wiki pages linking to their milestones as well as milestones of other related groups.
I see ticket #364 mentioned this (jamesm about 6 years ago)
I realize its ugly, but I think that the ability to link to the milestone outweighs the benefits of a pretty-url. I would say go with a fixed integer (like tickets do) and let the user assign a name/descrption to the fixed integer. I think that the linking throughout Trac/outside Trac is more important.
I agree with this statement, permanent ID's, just like tickets, elegantly solve this issue. Further, a milestone with a fixed ID having a title and description field would be highly useful. Macros (such as MilestoneDate) could pull the title into a wiki for display letting the milestone names change independently of milestone links without losing any descriptive benefits.
I checked newer versions of trac hoping this was implemented, but I see no evidence
