Daily email to remind owners of open tickets

Notice: This plugin is unmaintained and available for adoption.


This is a script for sending daily reminder emails of tickets owned, like one's notice scripts, or todo scripts.

The script searches the ticket status, and if one's status is not closed, it collects by owner and sends each of them a html mail.

This is a Python script. The underlying database connection relies on Python's database capabilities, so probably you will have to install the appropriate database connector module(s) for your database:

  • MySQL: mysql-python
  • PostgreSQL: psycopg2
  • SQLite: sqlite2 or sqlite3

And of course you'll need Python 2.6 as well.

It is tested on Trac 0.11 and 0.12 with PostgreSQL 3.10 and Python 2.6 running Linux Gentoo.

Feel free to adopt it to your needs, please test it, use it!

Note: Change line 141 when upgrading from Trac 0.11.x to Trac 0.12.x due to database changes:

detail = detail + "  created at " + str(time.strftime('%Y. %B %d. (%A) %H:%M:%S', time.gmtime(int(tkt[0]/1000000))))

Please note the indentation! The Trac 0.12.x database converts every timestamp to a more accurate timestamp format, so a timestamp field must be divided by a million to work properly.


Place the following in a cronjob /etc/cron.d/trac_remind.cron:

0 0 * * mon-fri root /path/to/this/script/

Place a MAILTO=your.address@your.domain.tld into the cron file, the script prints out the recipient names where the mails had been sent to.
