Track the status of code repository pull requests


This plugin allows you to track the status of your code repository pull requests.

A pull request (PR) is a request or proposal to submit code changes into a main code repository. Pull is standard terminology from version control systems like Git or Mercurial. Basically it is a method of submitting contributions. The contributor has a clone of the main repository, pushes the proposed changes to that clone, then submits a pull request. The pull request contains the information required to merge these changes back to the main repository. Usually this means the URL of the repository and a branch (Git) or bookmark name (Mercurial).

A special <command> PR: [arg] syntax is introduced to create and control pull requests from ticket comments.

Example of PRs created, reviewed and closed in ticket.

This plugin also adds a macro that lists the queried pull requests, and it also adds a new admin panel, that lists all pull requests.

Admin panel

Create Pull Request

A new pull request is automatically created when a ticket comment contains the command open PR: <link>.


  • open PR: changeset:123/MyForkedRepositoryName
  • open PR: log:MyForkedRepositoryName@bookmark_name
  • open PR: [ Branch 123]

The pull request number is automatically inserted into the ticket comment.

The trac.ini option [pullrequests] create_commands can be changed to allow multiple or different commands that create pull requests in different states. The status of a created pull request is always the same as the command that was used to create it.

Change Status of a Pull Request

The status of a pull request is automatically changed when a ticket comment contains the command <newstatus> PR:<number>.


  • reviewed PR:3
  • closed PR:7

The trac.ini option [pullrequests] update_commands can be changed to allow different commands that change the pull request statuses. The next status of a pull request is always the same as the command that was used to change status.

PRQuery Macro

A new macro allows listing all pull requests by author and / or status.


  • [[PRQuery()]]
  • [[PRQuery(status=reviewed)]]
  • [[PRQuery(status=!closed)]]
  • [[PRQuery(status=reviewed, author=joe)]]
  • [[PRQuery(status=open, author=!joe)]]
