Error description

After the installation of the announcerplugin revision 3130 and the restart of the webserver the following error is displayed when trying to load trac in a browser:

Trac Error

TracError: The Trac Environment needs to be upgraded.

Run "trac-admin c:/trac_projekte\testtrac upgrade"

The corresponding warning in the log file goes like this:

Trac[env] WARNING: Component <announcerplugin.api.AnnouncementSystem object at 0x06BFEAF0> requires environment upgrade

OK -> Try to upgrade trac. The result can be viewed here:

Command failed: Parent module 'announcerplugin' not loaded

Any ideas?

The first two are expected and normal; the last odd. Turn logging to DEBUG and see what it says?

I got this as well. After some debugging it turns out that the from trac.db import DatabaseManager in the _upgrade_db method in announcer/ triggers this. Replacing this with a normal import fixes it. I'll attach a brief patch (since we're already importing stuff from trac.db this shouldn't materially affect the operation)

I've tried to install the egg without the patch and it failed, I was getting the error "Command failed: Parent Module 'Announcer Plugin' not loaded".

Next I tried David's patch and it worked like a charm!

Please consider adding this patch to the repository!
