OK, I used my old 0.7.5 sample, I did not create a new own and the displayed
warning did not help.

OK, thanks :)

The trac plugin does not work with TRAC because the __init__.py prints
something instead of importing something from another module. I corrected
it, but it didn't show up in the webadmin panel :(

That would be indeed great !

Thanks for the info
