Hi,

Can you try to rename your milestone so no 'special characters' are in the milestone name?
If that works, I know what to fix :-)

Unfortunatelly, this didn't help. Tried to rename every milestone---same error.

comment:5 Changed 6 years ago by jan0sch@…

I get the same error when I try to start a milestone. I did not get this error before switching to german date format (DD.MM.YYYY via PythonOption TracLocale de_DE.UTF8) but switching back did not resolve the problem (same error message).

Oops…
Trac detected an internal error: 

If you think this really should work and you can reproduce it, you should consider reporting this problem to the Trac team.

Go to http://trac.edgewall.org/ and create a new ticket where you describe the problem, how to reproduce it. Don't forget to include the Python traceback found below.

comment:6 Changed 6 years ago by cj

I get the same problem, but only with newly created milestones. It works fine for milestones created before i installed the plugin.

comment:7 Changed 6 years ago by mantas.kanaporis@…

ok. seems that after going to "Adminstration" > "Scrum Burndown Plugin Settings" and manually setting the start of the milestone, the burndown starts collecting data. And in a few days time you can see the curve appearing.

comment:8 Changed 5 years ago by shu.shen@…

The same problem happens to my 0.10 trac installation.
I found in the database the newly create milestone has null as "started" field.
Problem is solved by manually setting this field as "0" by using sqlite.

I believe this is a bug that:
1) forgot to properly set the "started" when creating a new milestone, and
2) wrong handling code in get_startdate_for_milestone() of dhhelper.py

comment:9 Changed 5 years ago by anonymous

An easy fix is as below:

  • dbhelper.py

     
    9292    cursor.execute("SELECT started FROM milestone WHERE name = %s", [milestone]) 
    9393    row = cursor.fetchone() 
    9494 
    95     if(row and row[0]!=0): 
     95    if(row and row[0] and row[0]!=0): 
    9696        return datetime.fromtimestamp(row[0]) 
    9797    else: 
    9898        return None

That's because the file's inside a (compressed) .egg file.

Here's what I did:

  • checkout scrumburndown from SVN: http://trac-hacks.org/svn/scrumburndownplugin/
  • fix the file scrumburndownplugin\burndown\dbhelper.py
  • create a new .egg file: python setup.py bdist_egg
  • delete the old egg file from tracprojectroot/plugins/
  • restart trac service / webserver
  • upload the new egg file using admin plugins page

This problem still exists for trac 0.11.1 and TracBurndown 1.9.2.

Trac is running on a Ubuntu 9.0.4 server, and amazingly the stack dump talks about macos 10.6. I downloaded the plugin using a mac OS snow leopard client to the server downloads folder. Maybe automatic os sniffing is not a good idea, unless there is a list of oS'es also available where I can pick the correct download by hand.

In fact, the issue is not really fixed.

the current dbhelper.py source code has the code:
if(row and row[0]!=0 and row[0]!=0):
and should be
if(row and row[0] and row[0]!=0):

Anthony,

Thanks for the tip, I just applied it to my plugin and it works perfectly. Can this be included in the trunk?

Hi, i was able to resolve this (with a sqlite database) against trac HEAD at the time of this writing with the oneline fix:

     else:

it seems that sqlite3 returns null (None) and not 0 for timestamp values that aren't set. although someone who knows python more than me should try and resolve or comment on what looks likes a logical redundancy above.

the above comment at 01/21/10 sounds like it addresses my 'redundancy' concern any may be a more idiomatic fix.
