Patch for exporting an interface to alternative ticket workflows, and a plugin using it
All further development of the patch is now being undertaken on Trac's Trac under t:WorkFlow.
This is a patch against Trac trunk which implements an extension mechanism for allowing alternative ticket work flows. It is discussed at length on PEC under [trac-ticket:869 #869] and NewWorkFlow.
The patch adds two things to Trac's Python API:
- The trac.ticket.api.ITicketWorkflow interface, which abstract the ticket action control logic into an extension point.
- The trac.ticket.field module which is used to describe ticket fields that can be passed to Trac's form_control() Clearsilver function.
It also adds one function to Trac's Clearsilver macros:
- form_control(control). This takes a trac.ticket.field.Field object and renders it as a form control.
