Please explain the usage scenario a bit further.

I don't understand why you need this when Subversion already can be configured to support webdav, see - it even gives you version control :-)

Without a better usage scenario justification there is no big point in doing this. Closing the ticket for now.

  • Resolution set to wontfix
  • Status changed from reopened to closed

For the reasons cited in the p.e.c ticket, this is not a useful request.

I would like to use WebDAV to edit wiki pages with my preferred editor instead of using the limited browser built-in.

  • Summary changed from webdav for document uploads and editing to WebDAV for document uploads and editing

One option you might take a look at is the WikiEditorForEclipsePlugin. That doesn't allow you to use 'any editor', but might be preferable to you if you are a fan of Eclipse.

It would still be really nice to use WebDAV for managing attachments, since the web-based attachment interface can never be as simple as a folder.

This request actually is easier to setup than you think.

What I would like to be able to do is edit the trac attachments directly from trac. So no downloading, saving, opening, editing, uploading. Just directly click on an "edit link" in trac, open the attachment, edit it, and when saving, it is updated directly on trac.

The trac attachments are stored on disc in your trac directory. So I setup webdav on apache for that directly. See for more info. This way you can directly open trac attachments using webdav, edit them and save them, and trac will also have the updated version. The only thing missing is a link in trac with the attachment, giving you the webdav link so you can directly open it from the webbrowser. That would be teriffic.
