= The Trac Timeline =
The timeline provides a historic view of the project in a simple report.
It lists all Trac events that have occured in chronological order, with a
brief description of each event and if applicable, the person responsible for
the change.

The timeline lists the following type of events:
 * '''Wiki page events''' -- Creation and changes
 * '''Ticket events''' -- Creation and resolution/closing
 * '''Source code changes ''' -- Subversion commits 

Each event entry provides a hyperlink to the specific event in question, and 
in the case svn commit log messages, displays the commit message. 

== Subversion Commit Messages ==
It's important to note that WikiFormatting can be used in commit log messages,
including TracLinks.

This allows developers hyperlink and refer to issue tickets, wikipages and files
directly when committing a patch to the repository.


{{{ $ svn commit -m "Updated foo to bar. See FooBar. This fixes bug #42." }}}

This is a subtle but powerful feature.
