Add custom date fields to tickets


This plugin allows for validating custom fields as dates in tickets. Just set up the field as a custom field:, then use these extra options in the trac.ini file: = true
Enable extra date stuff on this field.
fieldname.date_empty = true
Allow this field to be blank.

Currently this will only validate that the given input looks like the specified date format (see below). Date range checking could be added if someone asks nicely enough.

The only configurable options are

format =
valid formats are dmy, mdy, and ymd
separator =
possible values are - or . or /
first_day =
let you change the first day of week (0=Sunday .. 6=Saturday) (as introduced in #1726)
