Multi-project version of the inbuit commit_ticket_updater tool


This plugin is useful if you have multiple Trac projects sharing a repository. By prepending the project name to the ticket number in the approved InterTrac fashion, you can add comments to tickets in specific projects only.



In the usual way:

sudo easy_install 0.12/

Enable the plugin

In the components section of trac.ini:

multicommitupdater.* = enabled

Set options

envelope = {}
commands.close = fix fixes fixed-forever
commands.refs = re see rel


  • envelope (either blank or two characters) specifies a pair of characters which must enclose all commit messages, or none if left blank. Default: blank.
  • commands.close is a space separated list of commands which can be used to close tickets. Default: close closed closes fix fixed fixes
  • commands.refs is a space separated list of commands which can be used to reference tickets. Default: addresses re references refs see


  • The plugin must be enabled in every project which will be using it. The simplest way to do this is with a shared global configuration file (see trac:TracIni#GlobalConfiguration).
