ticket.get appears to die on ticket custom fields
|Reported by:||greg@…||Owned by:||osimons|
When trying to use ticket.get() against my trac installation I get a TypeError exception from dump_struct in xmlrpclib.py due to the type of one of my custom fields not being string. They are, in fact type 'unicode' so I'm not really sure if they are wrong or the plugin is wrong but either way it doesn't seem to work. This was also posted to the trac mailing list.
Sorry to respond to my own post but I've been debugging this a bit and have more of an idea of what is going on. I played around with the exception handling in xmlrpclib.py. It turns out the TypeError exception gets thrown on one of my custom ticket fields. The field is defined in trac.ini as: verified = checkbox verified.label = Fix Verified verified.value = 0 verified.order = 7 and the type is somehow unicode. I have a few other checkbox custom fields and if they are processed in order then they are all fine. This is the same field I had problems with in ticket #3939 so now I'm wondering if there is just something dodgy with that field. Anyone have an idea of how to track this down?
