I would like to enable Discussion plugin 0.11 (from svn) for Trac 12.2 on my enterprise RHEL 5.4 system running python2.4. However, it appears that several lines of python 2.5 code (if oneliners for example) break python 2.4 compatibility. I noticed that there was a python2.4 patch few revisions back, so I tried to check out SVN r9590, apply the patch, and install the plugin. This did not work and Trac kept issuing a WARNING in the log:
Component <tracdiscussion.init.DiscussionInit object at 0x2ade4de3d7d0> requires environment upgrade.
Running trac-admin ... upgrade did not solve the issue, even though permissions were set correctly. I am currently stuck.
Does anyone maintain a more current python2.4 patch?
It is a shame that this valuable plugin does not maintain compatibility with widely used (especially on older and enterprise systems) python2.4 for reason no other than to save a few lines of code.
