Trac spam

It’s a problem.

Trac is a fantastic, world-dominating software project management and bug-tracking system written in Python. It integrates with Subversion and has a wiki and just works. Even the Rails guys use it. It’s possible that if Trac and Chuck Norris walked into a bar, only Trac would leave.

But unfortunately, the comment-spammers and wiki-spammers have noticed Trac and have been updating their scripts. Hence the 12,000 15,000 hits for “trac spam."

So if you run a Trac installation, now would probably be a good time to start trying out Edgewall’s experimental spam filter and the Account Manager Plugin from Trac-Hacks.org.
