How Trac and version control systems work together

These examples use Subversion terminology

Supported features

It is useful to identify the revisions and modifications that were made to complete the change. This is called a TracChangeset and allows users to clearly identify which modifications were made for a ticket.

How it works

The integration between Trac and the version control system depends on TracLinks. Every time a change is commited to the version control repository a TracLink must be used in the comment (usually referred to as a commit message) that includes a reference to the correct ticket

TODO Please tell which version of Trac supports these commit hooks and if it does that automatically.

With additional logic in the commit hooks it is possible to reject the commit if no ticket number is supplied.
