#6363 closed enhancement (wontfix)

Add option to wrap words greater in length than specified columns

Reported by: rjollos Owned by: pacopablo

Cc: Trac Release: 0.11


I've noticed that the EmailProcessorMacro does not break words that are greater in length than the specified number of columns. One common scenario is when a product key is contained in an email. For example,

Email from Company Y.

Here is the product key for product X:


I can imagine scenarios in which one would want such a line to wrap, and some in which one would not. Perhaps it would be worthwhile to have an option to specify word wrap?

I could work on implementing such an author, but was hoping to get some feedback from the plug-in author.

The suggested option along with cols: 72 would cause the preceding email to be formatted as:

Email from Company Y.

Here is the product key for product X:

For word wrapping I simply use what is available in trac.util.text.wrap. While I'm not against the feature, I haven't encountered many instances when it's been an issue. So, I'm happy to take patches, but I don't I'll ever get around to writing the feature myself.

  • Resolution set to wontfix
  • Status changed from new to closed

On further thought, I think the current behavior is better. The only case were this has been an issue for me is with product keys, and I think that most people would not want the text to wrap in those instances.

Thanks for the feedback!
