Import/Export XLS spreadsheets


This plugin adds an admin panel to allow the export and import of Trac tickets using an Excel spreadsheet, ie in xls format. The dependencies are the Python packages xlwt and xlrd.

The plugin is designed to export a ticket list into an Excel file and import the tickets back into the same Trac environment. This Excel file can be modified, but the columns Id and summary must be maintained. To add new tickets, the Id column must stay empty.

Set excel cell number format to "@" for text and longtext.
So, if the excel file has been edited, the text cells with number characters are not imported as number (ex: "12" text is imported as "12" and not as "12.0").
