    99 * Make sure the user under which your Subversion hooks are run has write access to the Trac environment, or use a tool like `sudo` to temporarily elevate privileges.

    11 == Specifying repositories == #Repositories
     11== Specifying repositories #Repositories
    1212Starting with 0.12, Trac can handle more than one repository per environment. The pre-0.12 way of specifying the repository with the `repository_dir` and `repository_type` options in the `[trac]` section of [wiki:TracIni trac.ini] is still supported, but two new mechanisms allow including additional repositories into an environment.

    2424||The `dir` attribute specifies the location of the repository in the filesystem. It corresponds to the value previously specified in the option `[trac] repository_dir`. The `alias` and `dir` attributes are mutually exclusive. ||
    2525||`hidden` ||When set to `true`, the repository is hidden from the repository index page in the source browser. Browsing the repository is still possible, and links referencing the repository remain valid. ||
    26 ||`type` ||The `type` attribute sets the type of version control system used by the repository. Trac supports Subversion out-of-the-box, and plugins add support for many other systems. If `type` is not specified, it defaults to the value of the `[trac] repository_type` option. ||

    2727||`url` ||The `url` attribute specifies the root URL to be used for checking out from the repository. When specified, a "Repository URL" link is added to the context navigation links in the source browser, that can be copied into the tool used for creating the working copy. ||

    3838Repositories and repository attributes can be specified in the `[repositories]` section of [wiki:TracIni#repositories-section trac.ini]. Every attribute consists of a key structured as `{name}.{attribute}` and the corresponding value separated with an equal sign (`=`). The name of the default repository is empty.

    4242The following example defines two Subversion repositories named `project` and `lib`, and an alias to `project` as the default repository. This is a typical use case where a Trac environment previously had a single repository (the `project` repository), and was converted to multiple repositories. The alias ensures that links predating the change continue to resolve to the `project` repository.

    83 == Repository synchronization == #Synchronization
     82== Repository synchronization #Synchronization
    8483Prior to 0.12, Trac synchronized its cache with the repository on every HTTP request. This approach is not very efficient and not practical anymore with multiple repositories. For this reason, explicit synchronization through post-commit hooks was added.
    8584
    8685There is also new functionality in the form of a repository listener extension point ''(IRepositoryChangeListener)'' that is triggered by the post-commit hook when a changeset is added or modified, and can be used by plugins to perform actions on commit.
    8786
    88 === Mercurial Repositories ===
     87=== Mercurial Repositories
    8988Please note that at the time of writing, no initial resynchronization or any hooks are necessary for Mercurial repositories - see [trac:#9485] for more information.
    9089
    91 === Explicit synchronization === #ExplicitSync
    92 This is the preferred method of repository synchronization. It requires setting the `[trac]  repository_sync_per_request` option in [wiki:TracIni#trac-section trac.ini] to an empty value, and adding a call to `trac-admin` in the post-commit hook of each repository. Additionally, if a repository allows changing revision metadata, a call to `trac-admin` must be added to the post-revprop-change hook as well.

    10099The `<repos>` argument can be either a repository name (use "`(default)`" for the default repository) or the path to the repository.
    101100
    102 Note that you may have to set the environment variable PYTHON_EGG_CACHE to the same value as was used for the web server configuration before calling trac-admin, if you changed it from its default location. See [wiki:TracPlugins Trac Plugins] for more information.

     103==== Subversion
    103104
    104105The following examples are complete post-commit and post-revprop-change scripts for Subversion. They should be edited for the specific environment, marked executable (where applicable) and placed in the `hooks` directory of each repository. On Unix (`post-commit`):
     
    108109/usr/bin/trac-admin /path/to/env changeset added "$1" "$2"
    109110}}}
    110 Note: Ubuntu doesn't seem to like /usr/bin/trac-admin, so just use:
    111 {{{#!sh
    112 #!/bin/sh
    113 export PYTHON_EGG_CACHE="/path/to/dir"
    114 trac-admin /path/to/env/ changeset added "$1" "$2"
    115 }}}
     111Note: Check with `whereis trac-admin`, whether `trac-admin` is really installed under `/usr/bin/` or maybe under `/usr/local/bin/` and adapt the path.
    116112On Windows (`post-commit.cmd`):
    117 {{{#!application/x-dos-batch
     113{{{#!bat
    118114@C:\Python26\Scripts\trac-admin.exe C:\path\to\env changeset added "%1" "%2"
    119115}}}
     
    126122}}}
    127123On Windows (`post-revprop-change.cmd`):
    128 {{{#!application/x-dos-batch
     124{{{#!bat
    129125@C:\Python26\Scripts\trac-admin.exe C:\path\to\env changeset modified "%1" "%2"

    136132See the [http://svnbook.red-bean.com/en/1.5/svn.reposadmin.create.html#svn.reposadmin.create.hooks section about hooks] in the Subversion book for more information. Other repository types will require different hook setups.
    137133
    138 Git hooks can be used in the same way for explicit syncing of git repositories. Add the following to `.git/hooks/post-commit`:
    139 {{{#!sh
    140 REV=$(git rev-parse HEAD)
    141 trac-admin /path/to/env changeset added <my-repository> $REV
    142 }}}
     134==== Git
     135
     136Git hooks can be used in the same way for explicit syncing of Git repositories.  If your git repository is one that gets committed to directly on the machine that hosts trac, add the following to the `hooks/post-commit` file in your git repo (note: this will do nothing if you only update the repo by pushing to it):
     137{{{#!sh
     138#!/bin/sh
     139REV=$(git rev-parse HEAD)
     140trac-admin /path/to/env changeset added <repos> $REV
     141}}}
     142
     143Alternately, if your repository is one that only gets pushed to, add the following to the `hooks/post-receive` file in the repo:
     144{{{#!sh
     145#!/bin/sh
     146while read oldrev newrev refname; do
     147        git rev-list --reverse $newrev ^$oldrev  | \
     148        while read rev; do
     149                trac-admin /path/to/env changeset added <repos> $rev
     150        done
     151done
     152}}}
     153
     154The `<repos>` argument can be either a repository name (use "`(default)`" for the default repository) or the path to the repository.
     155
     156==== Mercurial
    143157
    144158For Mercurial, add the following entries to the `.hgrc` file of each repository accessed by Trac (if [trac:TracMercurial] is installed in a Trac `plugins` directory, download [trac:source:mercurial-plugin/tracext/hg/hooks.py hooks.py] and place it somewhere accessible):
     
    158172}}}
    159173
    160 === Per-request synchronization === #PerRequestSync
     174=== Per-request synchronization #PerRequestSync
    161175If the post-commit hooks are not available, the environment can be set up for per-request synchronization. In that case, the `[trac] repository_sync_per_request` option in [wiki:TracIni#trac-section trac.ini] must be set to a comma-separated list of repository names to be synchronized.

    166 == Migration from a single-repository setup (Subversion) == #Migration
     180== Automatic changeset references in tickets
     181
     182You can automatically add a reference to the changeset as a ticket comment whenever changes are committed to the repository. The description of the commit needs to contain one of the following formulas:
     183 * '''`Refs #123`''' - to reference this changeset in `#123` ticket
     184 * '''`Fixes #123`''' - to reference this changeset and close `#123` ticket with the default status ''fixed''
     185
     186This functionality requires installing a post-commit hook as described in [#ExplicitSync], and enabling the optional commit updater components by adding the following line to the `[components]` section of your [wiki:TracIni#components-section trac.ini], or enabling the components in the //Plugins// admin panel.
     187{{{#!ini
     188tracopt.ticket.commit_updater.* = enabled
     189}}}
     190For more information, see the documentation of the `CommitTicketUpdater` component in the //Plugins// admin panel and the [trac:CommitTicketUpdater] page.

     192== Migration from a single-repository setup (Subversion) #Migration
    167193The following procedure illustrates a typical migration from a Subversion single-repository setup to multiple repositories.
    168194
     
    174200 1. Repeat steps 2, 3 and 4 to add other "named" repositories as needed.
    175201
    176 == Migration from a single-repository setup (Mercurial) == #MigrationMercurial
     202== Migration from a single-repository setup (Mercurial) #MigrationMercurial
    177203The following procedure illustrates a typical migration from a Mercurial single-repository setup to multiple repositories. Please note that at the time of writing, no initial resynchronization or any hooks are necessary for Mercurial repositories - see [trac:ticket:9485 #9485] for more information.
    178204
    179  1. Upgrade to the latest version of the TracMercurial plugin.
     205 1. Upgrade to the latest version of the [trac:TracMercurial] plugin.
    180206 1. Remove the default repository specification from the `[trac] repository_dir` option.
    181207 1. Add the main repository as a named repository.
     
    183209 1. Repeat step 3 to add other "named" repositories as needed.

    188214
    189215You must now use the optional components from `tracopt.ticket.commit_updater.*`, which you can activate through the Plugins panel in the Administrative part of the web interface, or by directly modifying the [TracIni#components-section "[components]"] section in the trac.ini. Be sure to use [#ExplicitSync explicit synchronization] as explained above.
