A irc bot that echos updates which you would normaly see in the timeline either as plugin that connects itself and reports, or as API so it works together with an existing eggdrop bot..

what about just using an irc bot with an rss plugin?

Just use an Eggdrop, get a rss reader for the eggdrop, I recommend rss-synd (can be found here:

Example Configuration

set rss(<name>) {
                "url"                   "<URL to tracs rss feed>"
                "channels"              "<Channel in which rss should be posted>"
                "database"              "./rss/<databasename>.db" //change this
                "output"                "[\002@@item!category@@\002] @@item!title@@ - @@item!link@@"
                "trigger"               "!timeline"
                "update-interval"       5 // Bot checks every 5 minutes

Hope this helps someone!

You could also use SuPyBot, which has plugins for fetching RSS feeds and announcing them as you wish. There is also a plugin for better integration with Trac, e.g. to easier get URLs for a specific ticket. Similar setups are used in Freenode channels #trac and #madwifi, for example.

kdb a bot I developer for fun and as a test and development framework for my circuits library also has a whole host of plugins one of which is an RSS plugin that I use to feed live updates of my Trac projects into my channels.

Come see me on FreeNode (prologic) :)

gozerbot is being used by the trac team itself on freenode's #trac channel, it basically monitors the timeline rss feed and spits any changes into the chat. Works great, and I suggest setting that up instead.
