TracDev ToDo List

This page clarifies the ongoing development activity in the TracTeam.


High prio Medium to low prio
High severity 20 62
Medium to low severity 30 894

As a general rule:

  • Severity is the degree to which a Trac installation is impacted by the defect or deficiency.
  • Priority is a measure to which a developer will prioritise the ticket over other tickets.

Not evaluated, and therefore no milestone set: 24

  • Review wiki pages: update with descriptions of new features or caveats, remove or replace dead links, fix typos

Code clean-up

  • Post-commit hook for pylint report?
  • Add code comments (docstrings) where appropriate
  • Refactor code

Next Releases

The master list of the upcoming release is the roadmap. The release guidelines can be found in the RoadMap.

Some of the key features that are being developed are:


Version Control

  • CachedRepository.get_path_history (#9775)
  • Show merge changesets in revision log (#3236), seems like follow-first is meaningless; git log --first-parent support
  • Hg: add basic support for cached repo (#8417)
  • More revisions available link at the bottom of revision log, when viewing a partial revision set (#4854).



  • Sort order of tickets in search results: currently creation time first as opposed to most recent modification time first.


  • In TracInstall#GeneratingtheTraccgi-bindirectory there is mention of chicken/egg problem with trac-admin deploy. We should support a direct trac-admin deploy <target> call syntax, ie without the need to specify a (dummy) environment.
