    5 The TicketModerator plugin is an extension for the [http://trac.edgewall.org/ Trac] project management and bug/issue tracking system.  It supports the manual moderation of new tickets and ticket comments for unprivileged users within Trac.  When an unprivileged user submits a ticket or ticket comment, their submission is recorded in a "moderation queue" and is not visible on the main Trac site until a Moderator reviews their submission and either accepts or rejects it.  Accepted submissions are then inserted into the main Trac ticket database.

     7The intent behind this plugin is to enable open-source projects hosted on corporate or governmental computer systems to better interface with the general public.  These hosting services typically do not allow anonymous users to add content to their websites (this includes adding new tickets or ticket comments).  This plugin allows projects to enable anonymous ticket reporting and commenting by "quarantining" unprivileged submissions until they are reviewed by a human moderator.

    22 The TicketModerator plugin introduces two new permissions: `MODERATOR_UNMODERATED` and `MODERATOR_MODERATOR`.  Users with the `MODERATOR_UNMODERATED` permission will not be subject to ticket moderation.  Any tickets they add or comment on will bypass the TicketModerator and be inserted directly into the Trac ticket database.  Users with `MODERATOR_MODERATOR` permissions will be allowed to browse the submissions in the moderation queue (pending, accepted, and rejected) and can make moderation decisions on any pending tickets.

    2426All new submissions are assigned to a Moderator.  The plugin assigns a submission to the first user it identifies that has _both_ `MODERATOR_MODERATOR` permissions and a registered e-mail address (so that they can receive the notification).  The plugin checks users in the following order:
