Document recommended practices for Trac 1.1+

Reported by: lkraav Owned by:
Priority: normal Component: DateFieldPlugin
Severity: normal Keywords:
Cc: Trac Release: 1.2

Description

As Trac 1.1 has built in time format field, I think this plugin's wiki documentation should be updated. As I'm not entirely sure myself whether this plugin still has use on 1.1, perhaps someone can clue me in before I start blindly editing the wiki page.

I can't think of a reason why the DateFieldPlugin would be needed in 1.1.1 or later. The custom field type time was added in trac:#1942. At least one minor issue was fixed in 1.0.2dev, trac:#11436.

It is not compatible format between date field which is provided by this plugin and time field which is supported since 1.1. Then, it is needed for Trac 1.0.x or early users with the plugin even if Trac is upgraded to 1.1.

Users could convert their data to the new time format though. It might be valuable to provide a script to do that. Either way, I don't plan to spend any time maintaining this plugin for Trac > 1.1, but anyone else is welcome to take over maintenance from me for that purpose.

If anyone has a need to convert from text custom field to time custom field, please provide your [ticket-custom] section and I'll work on a conversion script.

If possible please, looking for a conversion script from:

[ticket-custom]
creationdate = text
creationdate.date = true
creationdate.date_empty = false
creationdate.format = plain
creationdate.label = Creation Date
creationdate.options =
creationdate.order = 1
creationdate.value =

to:

[ticket-custom]
creationdate = time
creationdate.format = date
creationdate.label = Creation Date
creationdate.value = today

Thanks!

I won't have time to write a script, but if you ask on the MailingList we can give some pointers on writing a script.
