a comment about this :

I started doing this and I need you (all ;) to consider something very
important so as to move forward with Bootstrap .

The process of building a Trac theme usually involves developing a
plugin that relies on ThemeEnginePlugin so as to override default
trac.css file (and *override* means that trac.css is still applied ) ,
but also all other aspects defined by further Trac css files e.g.


$ find /path/to/trac/0.13/venv/trac/ -name "*.css"


considering this , there are three options :

1- include bootstrap.css as is and a separate css file so as to
   patch it in order to override trac.css et al.
2- include a modified version of bootstrap.css (<= is this possible ?)
3- replace trac.css with bootstrap.css and build all other css
   files (+ Genshi templates)

... basically this (and other hidden causes I'll mention along the way
;) means that there's a little extra effort due to the fact that the
HTML conversion is not straightforward ; even if it is great to start
;) .

I'm trying to provide a solution based on 1 ( ... but I'd rather
prefer to have green light to use 2 ;) . Nonetheless if many pages are
going to change maybe there's a chance to discuss whether 3 is the way
to go so as to move forward with Bootstrap and avoid patching styles (
too much ? ) along the way .
