Rename xmlrpc plugin to tracrpc

Reported by: Thijs Triemstra Owned by: osimons
Priority: normal Component: XmlRpcPlugin
Severity: normal Keywords:
Cc: Thijs Triemstra Trac Release: 0.11


The XmlRpcPlugin recently received support for JSON, allowing you to use JSON for RPC calls to query Trac. This means it's not strictly a XML-RPC only plugin anymore. The actual package name of the plugin is tracrpc and this sounds like a much better name. I am planning on adding AMF support as well, using PyAMF, and that way this plugin can become a generic RPC plugin for Trac.

Yes, as mentioned on #5437, a future version 1.1.0 will be further reworked to be fully protocol-agnostic (extension point), and that would correspond well with renaming it to just use simple forms of 'tracrpc' and 'rpc' naming.

I'd hesitate to call it a 'critical' issue as things do kind of work today... I'll leave the priority though as it is high on my list.

Looks like this became the TracRpcProtocolsPlugin?

Replying to thijs:

Actually adding various new protocols outside the default supported XML-RPC and JSON-RPC protocols, seems to be the intention of TracRpcProtocolsPlugin.

This ticket is all about renaming the XmlRpcPlugin to something with a less specific name now that XML-RPC is just one of potentially many supported protocols - typically the suggested TracRpcPlugin or similar. It should stay open as I won't manage a transition to a new name now.

[7916] completes the partial transition to new TracPRC naming as far as possible, but there is no real point in changing completely. I can't see myself aiming for further removal from origin, so closing as done.
