Description (last modified by Ryan J Ollos)

i use the email2trac plugin to allow users to comment on tickets via email. this attaches the email text between { } formatting brackets in the email comments. when i try to edit these i get: Ticket change '5' not found. Please try again

can we fix this plugin to work with comments inside { }. thats where the majority of our comments come from because of our use of email2trac

thx

There has been some recent activity on integrating this feature directly into Trac: http://trac.edgewall.org/ticket/454

Hopefully that happens soon!

This may be related to an issue I'm seeing with the TracBacksPlugin (#6535).

After further testing, I've found that I can't edit ANY ticket comments generated by the TracBacksPlugin, so the scope of that issue is beyond just those comments with formatting brackets.

When you say that the comments are between { } formatting brackets, do you mean enclosed in {{{ and }}}?

This issue probably has the same root cause as the one I reported in Ticket #6930 (Can't edit comments added through Mylyn).

See #6535 for additional comments on the issue.

Unless we figure out a way to do things better in the TicketChangePlugin, the email2trac plugin will need to be modified to fix this issue. For details, see comment:3:ticket:6535.

Do you mean MailToTracPlugin or EmailtoTracScript? I can look into working up a patch.

Closing as wontfix since the plugin is deprecated. I'd apply a patch if it was made available.
