why is the ticket email notification functionality not implemented as an
Currently change notification needs to be called explicitely every time:
Is there any reason why this is not implemented as a change listener? Is
it only because no one wrote a patch yet?
Though I can't specifically answer your question, that does seem like
the direction to go in. I've been using (a slightly modified version
of) the Announcer plugin for a few weeks ago, and it uses
ITicketChangeListener. Works fine. I imagine it would make sense to
make that part of any notification refactoring work.
The notification system is simply *much* older than the
ITicketChangeListener and the plugin system (see ...
http://trac.edgewall.org/changeset/388). And yes, that's not an excuse
for not having migrated it to the new system... so a patch would be
quite welcomed ;-)
