>From what I have seen from a quick look at the new trac 0.11.3, it still
doesn't allow custom queries sorted by changedate. So it will still
be useful to set up a set of reports by changedate and milestone or
version or component as in http://trac.edgewall.org/report

Do you mean the ticket query macro for the wiki or is there some other
way for doing advanced queries? I didn't find the ticket query macro
very useful for my own use since it doesn't provide the nice table.

The XML-RPC interface to trac might work quite well for scripting, this
is also how eclipse/mylyn synchronizes with the trac tickets.

To eclipse usage: I used it, together with svn integration, quite a bit for
pure python packages. Since I build and install scipy into new
directories each time, I find the workspace concept of eclipse a bit
cumbersome, and if I'm not sure how thinks work, I just work with
the Idle shell. But since eclipse is distributed with pythonxy, there
might be more users of eclipse.
