Assembla is removing trac

We are reaching out to you because you own an Assembla project that uses the Trac tool, and as of February, 1st 2014, we will be removing Trac from our toolset. Below are instructions on how to migrate your tickets, repository, and wiki pages from Trac to Assembla. The process requires minimal effort and we believe you will find Assembla's Ticket tool more suitable for your task/issue management needs.

Any projects with the Trac tool that have not been migrated by February, 1st 2014, will automatically be migrated. If you have any questions, please contact Assembla support

This affects the changeset and source browsing tools we have been using. It shouldn't affect svn access. We haven't been using trac tickets or wiki.

Equivalent source browsing functionality should be available in their tools, but I'm guessing old urls will be broken.

I'm trying the migration on the chdkptp project to see what happens.

I made a fresh backup of the the chdk and chdkptp svn repository and trac data.

edit:
This may also affect how chdkshell downloads source

This explains why the assembla repositories I've been using for all my software projects have looked different than the CHDK one.   It seems new projects do not default to using Trac ?  Or maybe I picked the wrong options during setup.  Either way,  both source browsing tools are available in the CHDK repository :

Browse your code repository »
Try the new integrated code browser »

Under the new system,  you only get the second choice, which seems servicable.

This are bad news. For that the CHDK shell needs a big update.

Where is Whim?  ;)

Thanks whim, let us know if there is anything we can help with :)

FWIW, the new assembla svn tab has a download link, e.g if you go to https://www.assembla.com/code/chdkptp/subversion/nodes/477/trunk not sure if this is readily available to a non-browser download

It also looks like clicking the "migrate" button does not disable trac (presumably it will stop working of feb 1) so I will probably do this on the chdk project fairly soon. This will leave both the trac and new source browsers available for a while. If anyone sees a problem with this, speak up!

Migrating chdkptp did put all the default trac wiki pages into the chdkptp assembla wiki, and there is not obvious bulk delete option :<

I started the "migrate" process on the chdk assembla project.
