A minority of web admin tasks affect the trac.ini file. This means we cannot implement another management procedure for those files without taking account of the concurrent management of the file by two procedures. One possible such procedure was to have the hourly cron job update trac.ini from the project's svn repository. This would overwrite changes made by web admin, and it might change trac.ini to owner root, whereafter web admin (www-data) would be unable to change it. Perhaps that is the solution, make the file root-owned so that web admin's attempts to change it fall over, thus encouraging developers to make those changes by hand in the svn repository. But how badly does it fall over?
