TracMasterTickets 3.0.1

Provides support for ticket dependencies and master tickets
TracMasterTickets is a Trac plugin that adds "blocks" and "blocked by" fields to each ticket, enabling you to express dependencies between tickets. It also provides a graphviz-based dependency-graph feature for those tickets having dependencies specified, allowing you to visually understand the dependency tree. The dependency graph is viewable by clicking 'depgraph' in the context (in the upper right corner) menu when viewing a ticket that blocks or is blocked by another ticket.

What is it not?

 * It does not provide ticket-hiding for sub-tasks of a top-level ticket.
 o There is no orthogonal parent/child relationship possible
 o You cannot view the descriptions of tickets depending on the current ticket
 o In fact, there are no explicit features that can assist you with sub-task management
 o Although it would be cool.
 * It does not allow you to create a dependent ticket from the current ticket
 * It does not include reporting features to show how tasks are interrelated (other than the dependency graph already described above).

Configuration

To use this plugin you must configure two custom fields named blocking and blocked_by.

All other configuration options go in the [mastertickets] section.

dot_path : optional, default: dot
 Path to the dot executable. This is only used for the dependency graph.
use_gs : optional, default: False
 If enabled, use ghostscript to produce a nicer dependency graph.
gs_path : optional, default: gs
 Path to the ghostscript executable.

To enable the plugin:

[components]
mastertickets.* = enabled

[ticket-custom]
blocking = text
blocking.label = Blocking
blockedby = text
blockedby.label = Blocked By


Custom fields

While the two field names must be blocking and blocked_by, you are free to use any text for the field labels.

Example

To use a locally-built graphviz:

[mastertickets]
dot_path = /usr/local/bin/dot

[components]
mastertickets.* = enabled

[ticket-custom]
blocking = text
blocking.label = Blocking
blockedby = text
blockedby.label = Blocked By
