Known Issues/TODO

As this is for now just a proof of concept implementation, it has quite some deficiencies, some of which are

  • very low performance
  • no branch support (always using HEAD)
  • does not highlight sha1sums automatically
  • will only work with filenames not containing newlines
  • ...


Simply point your Trac instance to a local git repository:

repository_dir = /var/git/Test.git
repository_type = git

If installed globally, don't forget to enable the plugin:

gitplugin.* = enabled
