The current procedures described in README.txt for setting up the djangoproject locally don't work. This appears to be because they assume that you already have a trac database setup properly with the correct schema. When the ./manage.py migrate step is executed, it fails due to missing relations from the trac model. In particular, the migration fails with the following error:
Running migrations for trac:
> Migrating forwards to 0001_initial. > trac:0001_initial ERROR: relation "attachment" does not exist STATEMENT: CREATE VIEW "attachment_django_view" AS SELECT "type" || '.' || "id" || '.' || "filename" AS "django_id", * FROM attachment;
Perhaps you could provide a truncated database dump from the live trac instance so that this can be used to create a dummy trac database.
I decided to try to simply install Trac (0.12) and specify a database connection string that pointed to the code.djangoproject database. Once I did that, I was able to run the "./manage.py migrate" with no errors. The server started up fine after that.
