[Patch] Wiki delete page or version XML-RPC method

Reported by: osimons Owned by: athomas
Priority: normal Component: XmlRpcPlugin
Severity: normal Keywords:
Cc: Trac Release: 0.10

Description

Needed this for myself, but really I think it belongs in the base XML-RPC funtionality as it is also directly supported in the Trac wiki model.

Here is the essential extract of the code I am using:

...
class WikiRPC(Component):
...
    def xmlrpc_methods(self):
...
        yield ('WIKI_DELETE', ((bool, str),(bool, str, int)), self.deletePage)
...
    # Internal methods / handlers
...
    def deletePage(self, req, name, version=None):
        """ Delete a Wiki page (all versions) or a specific version by
        including an optional version number. Attachments will also be
        deleted if page no longer exists. Returns True for success. """
        try:
            wp = WikiPage(self.env, name, version)
            wp.delete(version)
            return True
        except:
            return False
...

Oh, that would be surely useful. I have already written two scripts that interact with Trac by scraping the HTML pages (one of them is over 300 lines of PHP). I just found out about XmlRpcPlugin.

Anyway, one of those scripts was to delete spam (spambot had added links to every single page on the wiki), and I couldn't have used XmlRpcPlugin anyway, since it lacks "delete version" functionality.
