    3 Trac is a '''minimalistic''' approach to '''web-based''' management of
    4 '''software projects'''. Its goal is to simplify effective tracking and handling of software issues, enhancements and overall progress.
     3The new plugin page is now up and runing. Well, the first version anyway. We have made alot
     4of thinking to ensure that a hardware crash won't cause such a problem again. The most obviouse
     5is backup. We have that now... But we didn't want to stop there? If we are going to recreate the
     6plugin site, is there anything we can do to make the site more useful to developers and users?
     7Yes there is and the answer is version control and bugtracking.
    6 All aspects of Trac have been designed with the single goal to
    7 '''help developers write great software''' while '''staying out of the way'''
    8 and imposing as little as possible on a team's established process and
    9 culture.
     9The bugtracking system that we decided to use is called [ Trac].
     10It allows any base user to submit a bugreport or suggest a new function to a plugin. Choose ''New Ticket''
     11and follow the instructions.
    11 As all Wiki pages, this page is editable, this means that you can
    12 modify the contents of this page simply by using your
    13 web-browser. Simply click on the "Edit this page" link at the bottom
    14 of the page. WikiFormatting will give you a detailed description of
    15 available Wiki formatting commands.
     13To support plugin development we use [ subversion]. Everyone is allowed
     14anonymous checkout of the plugins avalible and a plugin developer can be given commit access to a
     15specified place in the repository.
    17 "[wiki:TracAdmin trac-admin] ''yourenvdir'' initenv" created
    18 a new Trac environment, containing a default set of wiki pages and some sample
    19 data. This newly created environment also contains
    20 [wiki:TracGuide documentation] to help you get started with your project.
     17We haven't created a simplified way to download distributions of a plugin yet. To retrive the plugins
     18in the repository download and install subversion then use this command to checkout the plugins.
    22 You can use [wiki:TracAdmin trac-admin] to configure
    23 [ Trac] to better fit your project, especially in
    24 regard to ''components'', ''versions'' and ''milestones''.
     20svn checkout
     22We will also create a page were we can present documentations for the plugins in the database.
    27 TracGuide is a good place to start.
