The NOTATION for trac link for Ticket

From: <joseph.h.dayney_at_rrd.com>

In getting SVN, TSVN, trac and CABIE to ALL integrate and speak a common
tongue ... came upon the following. In SVN, TSVN and CABIE, the notation
for linking to Tickets in trac (or other Bug Tracking Systems ....
Bugzilla ... etc ) is [9] or [9,10,11] where 9 is a single Ticket in
trac ... and 9,10,11 is a series of Tickets in trac

This works great. There is a really nice Tortoise to SVN GUI Commit Hook
that prompts User for a Ticket Number upon commit to put in the SVN Log in
the Notation .... [9] .... "Bug ID or Issue Nmbr: [9]"

Then when the SVN Log is pulled up ... User can simply click on the [9]
link to open the corresponding trac Ticket. Works exactly the same way in
CABIE ... "Defects fixed in this build: [9]."

So I created a Wiki Page for our Application Releases ... which is derived
from the SVN Log and the Revisions included ... which includes the Issue
link to trac .... "Bug ID or Issue Nmbr: [9]"

If User clicks on the Link in the trac Wiki Page ... the Link Notation in
trac is for Changeset (Diff Compare). The Ticket notation is #9 or
Ticket:9 (assume #9, #10, #11 or ticket:9, ticket:10, or ticket:11 for
... series)

Its easy enough to write a simple sed to change the notation in the SVN
LOG ... to work in trac ... but was curious why the [9] was not used
instead of the #9 or ticket:9, to be consistent with the other tools.
Maybe trac was already using that notation before TSVN ... ?
