Timeline Checkin Filter Plugin


This plugin changes the behaviour of the timeline and enables you to view changes to particular paths, or by particular users.

Based on BranchTimelinePlugin. This one's arguably better for single trac instance, multiple projects, as long as there aren't too many projects/branches. The difference is that, instead of specific branches, you specify generic repository paths, thereby allowing multiple trunks, branches, vendor branches, etc.
