Essence:

 * Deletion of valid defect reports on trac community resources

The "WikiInclude" plugin is not recognised on trac 0.11, thus I took a
look an made a small addition to the setup.py (the entry_point).

Other users have the same problem, thus I filed a ticket in the "trac-
hacks" community resource.

Mr. Noah Kantrowitz closed the ticket as "invalid". My comments within
this ticket are deleted, directly in the database, which is the same
as censorship. I've copied the email-notification from my comment
below. [1]

Please realize:

 * this is a real-live defect, which remains unprocessed, thus more
users run into this trouble.
 * My attemps to inform users in the user-threads do not show up in
all threads (moderation on trac-users!!!)
 * The "IncludeMacro" is not compatible to the "WikiInclude" macro
 * My comments were deleted in a non-trackable way
 * Users of the WikiInclude plugin are not informed in any way

You are may wondering why the trac project fails to produce a stable
1.0 version since years. The answer is here:

Comment:

 (Mr. Kantrowitz. This is defenitely a defect, which occoured for
several
 users. The provided information helps any user which hits on this
ticket
 via a search. I ask you once more to stop with the deletions on this
 '''community''' resource).

 The resolution "invalid" is incorrect.

 The problem exists for me '''and other''' users, see e.g.:

 * [http://groups.google.com/group/trac-users/browse_frm/thread/
de454e7dcf9f0438/d9806ad4a31a14a7 thread 1]
 * [http://groups.google.com/group/trac-users/browse_frm/thread/
2ccf4b2855a6f242?q=WikiInclude& thread 2]

 I've solved it whilst simply adding the entry point to the setup.py.

 It is ok to point to the more flexible and maintained "IncludeMacro",
but
 other people possibly just want to continue to use the simpler
 "WikiInclude" one.

 I suggest the maintainer of "WikiInclude" (or another developer)
corrects
 the setup.py in the repo, and additionally one should place a note in
the
 "WikiInclude" documentation, that there's a more flexible
"IncludeMacro"
 available.
