Please use TracLinks

Hi all,

This is a reminder to please use Trac links when writing in Trac. Here is the documentation:

Specifically, when referring to a Git commit in a Trac ticket or wiki page, use the proper Trac notation to do that; don't paste a GitHub URL.

So, don't write:


[ this commit]

Do write:



[changeset:0123456789abcdef0123456789abcdef01234567/macports-ports this commit]

Using Trac links properly has the advantages that Trac will differentiate between internal and external links. For internal links to changesets it will show a useful tooltip containing the commit message when you mouseover the link, and for external links it will show a special icon beside the link.
