  1. newly created ticket status is "resolved"
  1. it creates the description in such a way that when you follow up trac thinks the description is edited (this could of course be a trac bug)
  1. email followups don't followup (there's a configuration option for this but we never tried it)

Change history (8)

Bill -

  1. default status is "unassigned"
  1. I think this is standard trac speak
  1. I choose not to set up the followup options as it has trouble

parsing subject lines so sometimes gens new tickets - easier
for me to moderate and repost relevant emails

  1. By "newly created ticket status is "resolved" I meant that I see:
#18: High packet loss outside between bar and leisure center

Status: new / Resolution: fixed .

  1. It sure is annoying for users to get that email.

added a pending tag for resolution via the admin id and made
that the default - is pending doesn't suit, what would you like?

I don't care. I guess this is just an email2trac thing since when you create a ticket via the web interface it doesn't show a resolution in the initial email at all.

do you remember where the email2trac conf file lives? this may be tunable.

never mind - found it and the option that might work is:


which may be more work than it's worth

Resolution: pending
Status: assignedclosed

looked at emailtotrac code and saw nothing obvious in the section:

def get_body_text(self, msg):

will test after run of show, closing ticket
