#3944 closed defect (fixed)

NameError: global name 'sorted' is not defined

Reported by: richard.cross@… Owned by: k0s
Priority: highest Component: TicketSubmitPolicyPlugin
Severity: blocker Keywords:
Cc: Trac Release: 0.11


How to Reproduce

While doing a GET operation on /newticket, Trac issued an internal error.

This happened when I added the following to trac.ini:

[components] ticketsubmitpolicy.* = enabled


[ticket-submit-policy] policy1.condition = type is not defect policy1.excludes = version

More specifically, it's the two policy1... lines that cause the problem. I would enter the policy via the web interface, but this throws errors also (see ticket 3943)

  • Priority changed from high to highest

really, you should upgrade to python 2.4 or greater, which would fix this problem. I'll see if there's an easy fix for 2.3 (which doesn't have sorted built-in)

hopefully fixed with r4545

Replying to k0s:

hopefully fixed with r4545

...though still...please upgrade to python at least 2.4; i don't have much interest in doing extra work to support a version of python that is now 4 years old and precedes the life of my plugins

Yeah, the problem with Python is that I'm running Trac on a managed server that only uses packages distributed by YUM. The latest version of Python it provides is 2.3.4. I'll see if I can convince our hosting company to install Python 2.4 manually.
