It took some time and effort to configure but now I found the time and annoyance to give it a try.
Well not quite. The gnome-blog-poster is way to simple. Anyway it works.
The annoyance today is about eclipse. I need eclipse integration with trac and it wasn't working on eclipse 3.4.
So I installed eclipse 3.5 which is the third installation of eclipse in 1 week time sigh. Enabled mylyn and downloaded the trac integration plugin.
