    4 The Trac repository browser can be used to browse specific revisions of directories  
    5 and files stored in the repositories associated with the Trac environment. 
    6  
    7 ''(since 0.12)'':  
    8 At the top-level of the repository browser is the '''Repository Index''',  
    9 listing all the configured repositories.  
    10 Each repository has a name which is used as a path prefix in a  
    11 "virtual" file hierarchy encompassing all the available repositories. 
    12 One of the repositories can be configured with an empty name; this is the default repository.  When such a default repository is present, its top-level files and directories  
    13 are also listed, in a '''Default Repository''' section placed before the  
    14 repository index. If the default repository is the only repository associated  
    15 with the Trac environment the '''Repository Index''' will be omitted ^[#note-multirepos (1)]^. 
     4The Trac repository browser can be used to browse directories  
     5and specific revisions of files stored in the repository of the configured 
     6version control system. 
    167 
    178Directory entries are displayed in a list with sortable columns. The list  
    18 entries can be sorted by ''Name'', ''Size'', ''Age'' or ''Author'' by clicking on the column 
     9entries can be sorted by ''name'', ''size'' or ''age'' by clicking on the column 
    1910headers. The sort order can be reversed by clicking on a given column 
    2011header again. 
    2112 
    2213The browser can be used to navigate through the directory structure  
    23 by clicking on the directory names.  
    24 Clicking on a file name will show the contents of the file.  
    25 Clicking on the revision number of a file or directory will take  
    26 you to the TracRevisionLog for that file. 
    27 Note that there's also a ''Revision Log'' navigation link that will do the  
    28 same for the path currently being examined. 
    29 Clicking on the ''diff'' icon after revision number will display the changes made  
    30 to the files modified in that revision. 
    31 Clicking on the ''Age'' of the file - will take you to that changeset in the timeline. 
     14by clicking on the directory names. Clicking on a file name will show 
     15the contents of the file. Clicking on the revision number of a file or 
     16directory will take you to the TracRevisionLog for that file. 
     17Note that there's also a ''Revision Log'' navigation link that will do 
     18the same for the path currently being examined. 
    3219 
    3320It's also possible to browse directories or files as they were in history, 
     
    3623the ''View revision'' input field at the top of the page. 
    3724 
    38 The color bar next to the ''Age'' column gives a visual indication of the age 
    39 of the last change to a file or directory, following the convention that 
    40 '''[[span(style=color:#88f,blue)]]''' is oldest and '''[[span(style=color:#f88,red)]]''' 
    41 is newest, but this can be [TracIni#browser-section configured]. 
     25''(since 0.11)'': 
    4226 
    43 At the top of the browser page, there's a ''Visit'' drop-down menu which you can use  
     27At the top of the browser page, there's a drop-down menu which you can use  
    4428to select some interesting places in the repository, for example branches or tags.  
    4529This is sometimes referred to as the ''browser quickjump'' facility. 
    46 The precise meaning and content of this menu depends on your repository backend. 
    47 For Subversion, this list contains by default the top-level trunk directory  
    48 and sub-directories of the top-level branches and tags directories  
    49 (`/trunk`, `/branches/*`, and `/tags/*`).  This can be [TracIni#svn-section configured]  
    50 for more advanced cases. 
     30The precise meaning and content of this menu depends on your backend. 
     31For Subversion, this list contains by default a few branches (`trunk` and any sub-folder of the latest `branches` top-level folder) and a few tags (any sub-folder of the latest `tags` top-level folder). This can be [TracIni#svn-section configured] for more advanced cases.

    52 If you're using a Javascript enabled browser, you'll be able to expand and  
    53 collapse directories in-place by clicking on the arrow head at the right side of a  
    54 directory. Alternatively, the [trac:TracKeys keyboard] can also be used for this:  
    55  - use `'j'` and `'k'` to select the next or previous entry, starting with the first 
    56  - `'o'` (open) to toggle between expanded and collapsed state of the selected  
    57    directory or for visiting the selected file  
    58  - `'v'` (view, visit) and `'<Enter>'`, same as above 
    59  - `'r'` can be used to force the reload of an already expanded directory 
    60  - `'A'` can be used to directly visit a file in annotate (blame) mode 
    61  - `'L'` to view the log for the selected entry 
    62 If no row has been selected using `'j'` or `'k'` these keys will operate on the entry under the mouse. 
     33If you're using a Javascript enabled brower, you'll be able to expand and collapse folders in-place by clicking on the arrow head at the right side of a folder. Alternatively, the keyboard can also be used for this: use 'j' and 'k' to go to the next or previous entry, and 'o' (or 'Enter') to toggle between expanded and collapsed state of the selected folder or for visiting the selected file.

    65 MMM: I guess that some keys are upper case and some lower to avoid conflicts with browser defined keys. 
    66 I find for example in Firefox and IE on windows that 'a' works as well as 'A' but 'l' does not work for 'L'. 
    67  cboos: 'l' is reserved for Vim like behavior, see #7867

    70 For the Subversion backend, some advanced additional features are available: 
    71  - The `svn:needs-lock` property will be displayed 
    72  - Support for the `svn:mergeinfo` property showing the merged and eligible information 
    73  - Support for browsing the `svn:externals` property  
    74    (which can be [TracIni#svn:externals-section configured]) 
    75  - The `svn:mime-type` property is used to select the syntax highlighter for rendering  
    76    the file. For example, setting `svn:mime-type` to `text/html` will ensure the file is  
    77    highlighted as HTML, regardless of the file extension. It also allows selecting the character  
    78    encoding used in the file content. For example, if the file content is encoded in UTF-8,  
    79    set `svn:mime-type` to `text/html;charset=utf-8`. The `charset=` specification overrides the  
    80    default encoding defined in the `default_charset` option of the `[trac]` section  
    81    of [TracIni#trac-section trac.ini].

    83 MMM: I found this section a bit hard to understand. I changed the first item as I understood that well. 
    84 but I think the other items could be changed also 
    85  cboos: in the meantime, I've added the ''advanced'' word as a hint this can be a bit complex...

    91 [=#note-multirepos (1)] This means that after upgrading a single-repository Trac of version  
    92 0.11 (or below) to a multi-repository Trac (0.12), the repository browser will look and feel  
    93 the same, that single repository becoming automatically the "default" repository.
