Hello,

unfortunately someone is (again) posting spam to trac tickets.

See for example the last comments of #1076 and #518.

Can someone clean this up? Unfortunately, only a trac administrator can delete comments and attachments.

Hi, thanks for your hint :) I wasn't aware that the trac roadmap feature just showes new tickets, not new comments ...

So I enable delete option and removed the last spam comments. I'm not sure how to delete the spam attachments, but I will investigate how to do it.

The trac timeline can show comments as well: You must set "ticket_show_details = true" in trac.ini. See http://trac.edgewall.org/ticket/6519 . However, only someone with direkt access to the trac server can do that.

Go to the detail page for the attachment (click on the attachment link). At the bottom of this page there should be a button "Delete attachment". Yes, quite well hidden, I had to google it :-).

And BTW, is there a way for me to become a trac admin, too? Then I could clean up trac spam right away...

God damnit I wasn't aware that there is a details view.
Ok, so now the bad attachments are gone.
I will ask KaZer to do the modifications and if he is ok to give you mod/admin rights. For me it's ok as we are just a very small team and IMHO everybody should be able to do everything ;)

Thanks for the cleanup, and thanks for asking! I'll wait and see what KaZer says.

Also, could you ask KaZer about the trac username cleanup ( http://trac.navit-project.org/ticket/1140 ). I prepared a cleanup script, but only he can run it.
