Seems we have two "comment:22" on #18314. Tried to edit the second one but the edited content went into the first :)

Looks like it got to 23 and reverted back to 13 with a commit from you, then proceeded to count from there.

No idea what's going on here, but I can ask barry for a database snapshot if necessary.

This would be a bug in Trac, or probably more likely, a glitch with the database. We don't have any modifications affecting this.

Leaving this open as we can manually renumber them in the DB.

Yes, looks like something went wrong when the commit message was added to the comments.

  • Priority changed from normal to highest omg bbq

This problem is still in the wild, can it be fixed? Mostly happens in tickets with many comments.

  • Cc scribu added

I think I've only seen this caused by an automatic commit message. Does that sound about right? If so, I can dig into that area of the code.

#9 @nacin

Okay. This is caused by the Trac commit ticket updater, and it is not two consecutive commit messages, but a commit message that references multiple tickets.

Say you have ticket A with 30 comments, and ticket B with 45 comments. If you have a commit message that references both A and B, the next comment on ticket A will be 31, but ticket B will also be 31.

It seems that sometimes, it is the second referenced ticket (so, B) that screws up, while in the case of ticket:21390#comment:48, it's the first ticket that is referenced that is screwed up. It also doesn't appear to be a newer/older ticket thing. If someone can find a pattern, do let me know.

This appears to be the bug report upstream: It's ultimately not very descriptive, which is why it likely hasn't gotten any attention. If we can gather enough information I'm happy to increase its profile upstream.

The commit updater code is here:

#12 @scribu

Yes, the first time, I inserted the ticket number in the comment field and I got an error and the comment was only posted on the other ticket.

#13 @nacin

Yeah, I used something added in a later version of Python than this server runs, for a particular branch of code. I'll get it fixed.

#14 follow-up: @SergeyBiryukov

Some recent comments and tickets don't show up in wp-trac mailing list:

#16 @nacin
12 years ago

This might be fixed with an update to Trac 0.12.4. See I guess we'll find out.

#17 in reply to: ↑ 11 @SergeyBiryukov

Replying to SergeyBiryukov:

"# was marked as a duplicate" message is sometimes posted twice

In my case, that happened when I linked a comment on the original ticket rather than the ticket itself in the comment field when closing a duplicate ticket. I got an error, as mentioned in comment:12.

Seems fixed with 0.12.4.

Fixing the "# was marked as a duplicate" now too.

#19 @nacin

  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from new to closed

Fixed with 0.12.4, not broken in 1.0 either.

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
