== Abstract #abstract

The evolution on the field of issue tracking systems leads to many request for supporting
multiple products in a single environment. This document is meant to gather community consensus
on the implementation of this feature . Besides it is a starting point to envision the impact
on the underlying components architecture and the corresponding development strategies to
get everything done. Ultimately it will explore compatibility considerations for existing
plugins and suggest recommended upgrade paths so that hacks authors will take advantage of
this feature .

== Motivation ==

Nowadays it is possible to manage multiple projects by creating multiple environments. As
a consequence data is scattered across multiple databases and maintenance tasks turn out to
be more difficult. Since a long time users have expessed the need for managing multiple ''projects''
in an easy way . In the case of a family of related products it is usually important to have
a unified view on the development activity as well as the ability to share common resources
among them. Under those circumstances it is convenient to manage multiple products within
a single ''Trac'' environment.

The term ''project'' is very generic and may be confusing considering the context. Therefore
in this specification the word ''product'' is used instead .
