Roundup Tracker Templates
The templates distributed with Roundup are stored in the “share” directory nominated by Python. On Unix this is typically /usr/share/roundup/templates/ (or /usr/local/share...) and on Windows this is c:\python22\share\roundup\templates\.
The template loading looks in four places to find the templates:
- share - eg. <prefix>/share/roundup/templates/*. This should be the standard place to find them when Roundup is installed.
- <roundup.admin.__file__>/../templates/*. This will be used if Roundup’s run in the distro (aka. source) directory.
- <current working dir>/*. This is for when someone unpacks a 3rd-party template.
- <current working dir>. This is for someone who “cd”s to the 3rd-party template dir.
- modules schema.py and initial_data.py
- directories html, detectors and extensions (with appropriate contents)
- template “marker” file TEMPLATE-INFO.txt, which contains the name of the template, a description of the template and its intended audience.
An example TEMPLATE-INFO.txt:
Name: classic Description: This is a generic issue tracker that may be used to track bugs, feature requests, project issues or any number of other types of issues. Most users of Roundup will find that this template suits them, with perhaps a few customisations. Intended-For: All first-time Roundup users
