[TSVN] Trac/bugtraq - Ticket to Changeset link [was: Re: Trac [was: TortoiseSVN 1.1.1 released]]

thanks for your info.
Since this is a bit off-topic for TSVN (except for my last comment -
Stefan, can you comment on that?) I'd suggest moving over to the trac
list (assuming you're monitoring that as well?).

Somehow I must have missed that or made it non-funct accidentally - or
is this a post-0.7.1 feature?

While I see this is actually working e.g. on Trac's ticket #841, I still
have to read through the comments to find the changeset links. Still
valuable though.
What I'd prefer would be a single 'Changesets' link in the ticket view
which would take me to a list of tickets similar to the reports already
available. Partly I achieved that by defining a report (no. 9) with the
following SQL and link in the ticket view:

<a href="/trac/cgi-bin/trac.cgi/report/9?TICKET=3">Changesets</a>

-- ## 9: Changesets for Ticket ## --
-- * All changesets for ticket.
-- * Prerequisite: commit log messages contain 're #<n>' where
-- n is the ticket number.
-- Must be called with the ticket nr as argument, like this:
-- http://projects.edgewall.com/trac/reports/9?TICKET=123

select rev as Changeset, time, author, message
from revision where message like '%re #$TICKET'

This gives me the desired report but I found no way to have the
changeset numbers appear as links to the changeset view :-( Plus the
report shouldn't appear in the report list since it's not supposed to be
called directly from there.

> basically, nothing links a ticket resolution to a changeset.

Technically true and I'd prefer having that link in a separate table -
but I can live with the implicit link in the comment, since it's ensured
by the pre-commit hook anyway.

Yep, I knew that, just missed the link from a ticket to the changeset(s).

> As I said before, nice and simple :)

Absolutely true - the only thing missing would be a combobox in TSVNs
commit dialog with the available open tickets in Trac. I would think
something like this would be needed for any bug tracking system and
could be implemented generically. I would imagine a new bugtraq property
in which I could specify a script/program/... which would deliver the
appropriate ticket numbers. If this property was set, TSVN could call it
and fill the above-mentioned combobox with these values.

Just some thoughts...
