Add support for inter-Trac ticket dependencies and summary tickets


This plugin provides support for ticket dependencies and summary tickets among projects.

Why does this plugin provide support for intertrac?

The custom field that the ticket needs is different in each ticket type. Custom fields that the summary ticket needs and custom fields that a sub-ticket needs are different.


  1. Data as follows are on MS-Project side, if you need them:
    • Resource
    • Calendar


  1. Extend XMLRPC plugin suitable to this plugin and VisualBasicTracConnectorIntegration.
  2. Import/update tickets from MS-Project.
  3. When ticket's status is changed, add comment to dependency tickets.
  4. Edit custom fields' change time for creating burndown chart in Excel.

Imported Gantt chart from Trac

Suppose there are the following dependencies and outline in an MS-Project plan that has 3 tickets:

Please see the MS-Project connector plugin.

With this plugin, these tickets would be managed and shown as follows:

Test1:#1: the overarching ticket has two sub-tickets:

Test2:#1: the first sub-ticket has no dependency other than its parent Test1:

Test2:#2: the second sub-ticket has both a parent Test1 and a dependency of sub-ticket Test2:#1:
