Description

The link given on the trac front page for email2trac is non responsive and the most recent copy in the Wayback machine
dates from 2012
(https://web.archive.org/web/20120612111125/https://subtrac.sara.nl/oss/email2trac/wiki/Email2tracParse#Linkstoattachmentsinsidetheticketdescription)

As darcs send uses patch names as the default subject line and email2trac won't recognise a bug number without a trailing colon it would be a good idea if the front page
suggested the use of a trailing colon in bug names (ie use "fix #1530:" rather than "fix #1530"). The examples given on the wayback machine imply that the colon isn't needed
when just setting various ticket attibutes but I'm not so sure. This ticket submission tests that.

Looks like you can tweak a bugs attributes without a trailing colon.

It would appear that the page documenting how email2trac works has moved to the following location:
