I'd like to mention folks in a ticket when their expertise/knowledge would be appreciated, and make sure they get a notification of it.

I thought we had this already. Maybe not.

Test: @Notto (my testing account)

#2 @Otto42

Guess not. I got no email from that.

Seems reasonable, as long as there's some way for individuals to opt-in/out of it somehow. Lots of people get lots of emails and may not want them.

Is there a repo for our trac setup?

#4 @Otto42

Most of the configuration and templates and diff patches and such which are applied to our various trac instances can be found here:

But those are all indirect copies of the code we're using, the actual trac's themselves are managed internally at present.

  • Cc nacin added

@nacin was working on this after his last major trac changes a few months ago. No idea how far he got in implementing it, but he should have a better idea of where things are and how to implement this.

#6 @SergeyBiryukov

A workaround to get someone's feedback on a ticket is to add their username to the Cc field (as seen above).

This ticket was mentioned in IRC in #wordpress-meta by sams. View the logs.

#8 @samuelsidler

  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from new to closed

I'm pretty sure this works in core trac, but maybe not in other tracs? Like, I get notifications from the core trac all the time. :)

For this trac, @nacin is bringing those change to meta trac "soon" see #291 (comment 3).

#9 @nacin

This ticket predates my work to add mentions. Mention support was added all at once in December/January to the Tracs for core, bbPress, BuddyPress, GlotPress, Meta, Plugins, and Themes.

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
