On the website there should be a nice HTML view of the changelogs.

The HTML generating script should parse the changelog as sections of lists and add hyperlinks to all kind of URLs and Bug numbers.

Trac has support for automatic updates of tickets from the commit messages, using keywords such as 'closes', 'fixes' etc.


CommitTicketUpdater? — Update tickets based on commit messages.
This component hooks into changeset notifications and searches commit messages for text in the form of:

command #1
command #1, #2
command #1 & #2 
command #1 and #2

Instead of the short-hand syntax "#1", "ticket:1" can be used as well, e.g.:

command ticket:1
command ticket:1, ticket:2
command ticket:1 & ticket:2 
command ticket:1 and ticket:2

In addition, the ':' character can be omitted and issue or bug can be used instead of ticket.

You can have more than one command in a message. The following commands are supported. There is more than one spelling for each command, to make this as user-friendly as possible.

close, closed, closes, fix, fixed, fixes::

The specified tickets are closed, and the commit message is added to them as a comment.

references, refs, addresses, re, see::

The specified tickets are left in their current status, and the commit message is added to them as a comment.

A fairly complicated example of what you can do is with a commit message of:

Changed blah and foo to do this or that. Fixes #10 and #12, and refs #12.

This will close #10 and #12, and add a note to #12.

If you prefer to stay with an external tool, you can also generate content programattically - see

I was thinking about something like what Debian has, for example:
As direct, gapless integrated element of the website.

However I'm very interested in those features of trac to update the tickets based on commits. I'm very thankful for your description. Is this already active with the current configuration?
