#9652 closed task (wontfix)

Call for actions - doesn't work at all with trac-0.11 and later

Reported by: Steffen Hoffmann Owned by: arkemp
Priority: high Component: DiaViewPlugin
Severity: normal Keywords: adoption-request
Cc: Ryan J Ollos, Michael Renzmann, robert_martin, Martin Trac Release: 0.11

Description

Four years of no recognizable progress, response to pending tickets and any form of support led to this macro into a bad position.

As outlined on the mailing-list, some action need to be taken to get the macro working with any current Trac application, to make it interesting to new users again. Keeping it here without that effort is rather worthless. I'd like to see a response from the author too, if he/she needs help to catch-up with Trac development, or if at least he/she is willing to hand-over maintainer-ship status to someone, who might be interested in continued development of this macro.

Thanks for adding the needsadoption tag. I'm going to add the py file on the wiki page to the repository. It looks like DiaVisViewPlugin is a fork of this plugin, so it might be worth throwing efforts at that one.

(In [11099]) Refs #9652: Added the 0.10 version of plugin to the repository. It was previously attached to the plugin's wiki page.

Thank you too for finally putting this into the repo. I've already receive a request, where it could be found.

No problem. Certainly contact me anytime something similar needs to be done.

I propose that we deprecate this plugin in favor of its successor, DiaVisViewPlugin. I'm fairly sure that robert_martin isn't around these days if you'd like to adopt the DiaVisViewPlugin.

Yes, this sounds like a reasonable plan. Thanks for the pointer. I think I did not notice the successor by now.

I've formally repeated my request with #10213 now over there. I'll have a closer look, if any of the issues hear could apply to the successor too and try to handle them in upstream development.

Thanks for raising momentum in this effort.

Well, I've just seen some changes committed by a user Martin earlier this year, so this might not be true, and maybe he's rather in need of help to recover his older account after password loss or something?
