Improve selection of users to be cc-ed
Notice: This plugin is unmaintained and available for adoption.
This plugin provides a more helpful experience in the editing of a Trac ticket's CC field than the standard Trac core's functionality. A pop-up window with a list of checkboxes is opened. The user can the check/uncheck boxes, and email addresses are added to or removed from the CC field as needed.
Developer list is fetched from the Trac database. Users who logged in at least once (see
session table) and have the 'TICKET_VIEW' permission are
Of course, you can always edit the Cc field without all this hassle, all addresses you entered manually will be shown, too and can be removed with checkboxes.
See AutocompleteUsersPlugin for another way to help with filling the Cc ticket field.
This plugin works with both Trac 0.10, 0.11, and 0.12 (since rev3531). I18n support for Trac >= 0.12 is planned to be added to the 0.11 branch in a backwards-compatible way.
If you have any issues, create a new ticket.

General instructions on installing Trac plugins can be found on the TracPlugins page.
The following options should be added to the
trac.ini file to configure this plugin:
[cc_selector] show_fullname = true username_blacklist = user1, 'user 2'
- default: false
- Display full names instead of usernames if available.
- Use case: If most/relevant Trac users prefer full names over usernames aka login/nicknames.
- default: '' (empty string)
- Usernames separated by comma, that should never get listed.
- Use case: Hide administrator accounts from the default list.
Want drop-down box for "assign to" field?
If you want a drop-down box for the assign to field all you have to do is set
restrict_owner option in TracIni:
[ticket] restrict_owner = true

About i18n/l10n support
The development version of this plugin is prepared for localization.
But English message texts are still the (POSIX) default. If this isn't your preferred language, you can
- check if it's already available from the Trac plugin l10n project at Transifex or
- do it yourself (see the l10n cookbook page for Trac plugins for more details).

Preparing the plugin from source requires no additional steps for compiling message catalog files. Only to include translations marked as
# fuzzy by the translator, you'll want to do a manual message catalog compilation with the extra
-f argument before packaging:
cd ccselectorplugin/ python ./setup.py compile_catalog -f python ./setup.py bdist_egg
Complaints about missing
locale directory are often a side-effect of failure to compile any message catalog for inclusion into Python egg, hence the whole path is missing. Due to a know Trac issue, Babel has to be installed prior to Trac to get it all working as expected.
Again, for more details see the l10n cookbook page for Trac plugins.
