#2324 new defect

[Patch] Reposearch always reindexes repository

Reported by: Jirka.Vejrazka@… Owned by: anonymous
Priority: normal Component: RepoSearchPlugin
Severity: normal Keywords:
Cc: Trac Release: 0.10



I found out that reposearch plugin always reindexes the repository upon search query. A bit of digging in the source code revealed that function need_reindex() in compares self.repo.youngest_rev (type Unicode) with int(self.meta.get('last-repo-rev', -1)). These never match, therefore reindexing is started.

Changing int(self.meta.get('last-repo-rev', -1)) to unicode(self.meta.get('last-repo-rev', -1)) seems to solve the problem.

I'm using Trac 0.10.3 on Debian, if that's of any relevance. Latest revision of RepoSearch Plugin (

Thanks for the great plugin BTW!

Ah yes, I think this must have broken during one of the versioncontrol changes to support VCS's with non-numeric changeset identifiers.

Thanks for the fix, I'll commit soon.

Any progress on this? It seems like the latest release still has this issue.

Thanks for the fix Jirka. I made the change on a local working copy, recompiled and it's working much better.

I took over maintainership of this plugin from athomas some time ago. There is a significant amount of work to do on this plugin, and I don't foresee having the time to do it all.

helend has written the TracSuposePlugin, which seems like a much better solution. Rather than writing the repository search functionality from scratch, a Trac interface to an existing repository search tool has been created. Rather than throwing more effort at this plugin, I'd prefer to help helend with enhancements to the TracSuposePlugin, or spend my time on other Trac plugin projects altogether.

I'd like to get some feedback and hear if anyone knows of a compelling reason to continue this project rather than moving to the TracSuposePlugin. Is there functionality in this plugin that doesn't exist in the TracSuposePlugin? I'm open to hearing all opinions and suggestions.

I'll leave these tickets open for about a week, but in all likelihood will close all of them and deprecate the plugin.

Thanks for your time,

  • Ryan
