Prevent loss of unsaved form data
Notice: This plugin is unmaintained and available for adoption.
This plugin prevents unsaved form data loss by providing a restore button to context-navigation.
Suppose you write a lengthy wiki page, but accidentally hit refresh or the back button. With this plugin, a link called "Restore Form" will allow you to retrieve your data from your last save. Any time you navigate away from a form page, the contents will be saved in a cookie and when you return to it, you can simply click "Restore Form" to retrieve it.

- check if it is 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 the additional step of compiling message catalog files. This will be done automatically by invoking a suitable Babel install. Walk through:
cd datasaver python ./setup.py compile_catalog -f python ./setup.py bdist_egg
Step 2 is almost obsolete, and only needed to include translations marked as
# fuzzy by the translator, since
the compilation before packaging will do message catalog compilation compile only without the extra
