Dynamic variables in wiki pages

I have several pages that are very similar: among other things there are some that sum up the status different sub-projects for larger "epics", and so on...

The copy-paste method is currently employed to duplicate the "/wiki/projectX/subproject/status" wiki page for each new subproject. This gets tedious (especially for non-techie users) and is prone to human error.

Expanding a variable like $MYVAR in the wiki source from the corresponding querystring parameter would potentially alleviate this by allowing one report page to be used for all the reports.


== Wikipage ==

...(GET /mysite/wiki/StatusReport?K=MyTag) would resolve to:

== Wikipage ==

This would be very useful indeed.

Another good example:

The wiki link:

Please open a [/newticket?owner=$USER new ticket] for yourself.

I think that I will be able to make this request possible. I didn't program it yet, however I have a good idea on how to realise this.

As this request is generated some years ago, the question is: Are you still interested to have the possibility to use variables on the WikiPage that will be using the values of the URL querystring parameters?

I also probably will be able to generate a WikiMacro that returns the actual userid or username, which can then be used in other macro's and trac-links.

Please let me know if you are still interested, or if it is not needed anymore.
