Missing makedependency python2-babel

Hello, this PKGBUILD would benefit from small updates.

  • pkgdesc is outdated, as trac is not bound to Apache and Subversion anymore, and the Trac project itself is presentend as "an enhanced wiki and issue tracking system for software development projects". BTW the ArchLinux Wiki article about Trac mentions "a webserver" and not specifically apache. tracd runs fine behind nginx.

  • as zoidberg_md pointed out, python2-babel is only an optional dependency, as trac builds and runs without it. It should be moved to makedepends : 'python2-babel: localization support'.

  • other packages should be added to makedepends : 'git: Git repositories support', 'python2-pytz: get a complete list of timezones' (per Trac's documentation), 'postgresql: PostgreSQL database support' (python2-psycopg2 is not sufficient to install postgresql) and 'subversion: Subversion repositories support'.

  • "install=trac.install" should be removed: this package has no trac.install file

  • license.txt should be removed from "source" and "package()": this file is not present in Trac's repository, and license=('BSD') is correct. I guess it's a remnant from an old version of Trac.

Sorry for the late reply. I've just pushed a new version incorporating some of the suggestions. Can you explain why you think babel is only a build dependency? lists it as an optional package, so maybe it should be moved to optdepends.

1.4.1-1 works, however python2-babel seems to be only a make dependency. Some scripts such as /usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/trac/web/ contain Python3 sheband, I wonder if it's a good idea to sed/convert them.

Also there is an optional dependency of python2-pygments, for syntax highlighting

The issue with Jinja should be fixed in the newly released version 1.4.1.

Some of the functionality is broken after update of python2-jinja to 2.11. See in particular this ticket: I get similar errors on my installation.

It wasn't added, it's there since at least 2009:

But I'll try if it works fine without it and remove it.

why was clearsilver added as a make depend from version 1.2.2-1 to 1.2.3-1?

clearsilver support was removed from trac many years ago in version 0.11. The only mentions of clearsilver in the trac source are that they're no longer supported.
