Trac Subcomponents

Notice: This plugin is unmaintained and available for adoption.

To create components with subcomponents, then you have to add these using the standard component admin page. If you enter the following components:

  • Web
  • Web/Frontend
  • Web/Backend

Then the user interface will show the Frontend and Backend as a subcomponent of the Web component.
