Needs a better auth system.

  • New users should register at the forum first.
  • Trac should use the forum login to auth users
  • Authenticated users in Trac should receive permissions to add new tickets, append comments, change and create new Wiki pages.

  • Tested against phpass modded apache module. Seems to work. New users can register at forum, then log in to trac and forum OK.
  • Permissions seem to work, need more feedback if there are problems.


  • Write documentation about this, also look at blog in trac to make new easier.

Replying to atea:


Seems OK.. Anon users cannot do any changes as far as I can see.

Manual spammers may still register and enter spam, but I hope this is a minimal problem. I have not seen any registrations on the forum that looks like manual spammers so far.
