Upload files without file extensions

It should be possible to upload files like "CHANGELOG" that have no proper file extensions, i.e. instead of renaming the file to CHANGELOG.txt.

Has anyone had any luck with this yet?

Actually I found a solution but that takes away the extension filtering... Sorry i'm not really a python developer... but you can do this in the mean time : in the dist open the file and look for this section :

# Check correct file type.

reg = re.compile(r'(.*).(.*)$') result = reg.match(downloadfile?) self.log.debug('ext: %s' % ( if result:

if not in self.ext.split(' '):

raise TracError('Unsupported uploaded file type.')


raise TracError('Unsupported uploaded file type.')

Comment all of that out, then just reinstall it... simple solution:P

I'll add trac.ini opiton value none which will allow uploading of files with no extension. Just wait for it.

Branch 0.11 and 0.12 now contains two new values of ext trac.ini option. They are none which allow to upload files without extension and all which disables file extension check.
