Controls the initial status of tickets

Description

This plugin is being extended by TicketConditionalCreationStatusPlugin.

In default Trac, all tickets start off with a status of "new"; but this may not be desirable, especially with the workflow additions in 0.11.

This plugin allows you to specify both:

  1. The 'default' status that a new ticket should start off as, and
  2. The status that a ticket which has an owner should be set to.

E.g., if someone ends up owning the ticket-- be it from the 'Assigned-to' drop down, or a default owner in a component, the ticket can start its life as Assigned.

Usage

Simply install the plugin using setuptools (how to). Activate the TicketCreationStatus component if installed for all Trac projects in trac.ini:

 [components]
 ticketcreationstatus.* = enabled

Then add either of the following trac.ini options:

 [ticketcreationstatus]
 default = test
 owned = assigned

Both options are optional-- if you don't specify 'default', then tickets will remain 'new' after creation. If you specify 'owned', then a ticket that gets an owner will get that status.
