It's currently not possible to specify the creation time or author for a ticket attachment. The attached patch should fix this problem.

Hmm. Perhaps adding an attributes={} parameter to the end of the signature? That could then contain author and time_created keys? Ideally I would also like description to be in that dictionary, as unlike the other parameters it is just an optional extra.

Technically it would perhaps be possible to change description to attributes, and then (at least for a time) test the input - if input is a string then save as description, if it is an dictionary then update whatever attributes it contains or use any default values (like req.authname).

See also #5445 for ~same request for ticket updates.

With #5445 + #3988 completed, the same principles should be applied to ticket attachments too. Should add 'author' and 'when' as optional arguments at the end (no need to break the API), and also add test(s) to make sure it works.
