    13 database connection string (explained below), and the type and path to
    14 your source code repository.

     17the appropriate permissions. The same applies to the source code repository,
     18although the user under which Trac runs will only require write access to a Subversion repository created with the BDB file system

     22''Note: "initenv" when using svn repository does not imply that trac-admin will perform "svnadmin create" for the specified repository path. You need to perform the "svnadmin create" prior to trac-admin initenv if you're creating a new svn repository altogether with a new trac environment, otherwise you will see a message "Warning: couldn't index the repository" when initializing the environment.''

    32 === Embedded SQLite Connection String ===
    33 The connection string for an embedded SQLite database is:
     33=== SQLite Connection String ===
     34The connection string for an SQLite database is:
    3435{{{
    3536sqlite:db/trac.db
    3637}}}
     38where `db/trac.db` is the path to the database file within the Trac environment.
    3739
    3840=== PostgreSQL Connection String ===
     
    9597== Source Code Repository ==
    9698
    97 You'll first have to provide the ''type'' of your repository (e.g. `svn` for Subversion,
    98 which is the default), then the ''path'' where the repository is located.
     99Since version 0.12, a single Trac environment can be connected to more than one repository. There are many different ways to connect repositories to an environment, see TracRepositoryAdmin. This page also details the various attributes that can be set for a repository (like `type`, `url`, `description`).
    99100
    100 If you don't want to use Trac with a source code repository, simply leave the ''path'' empty
    101 (the ''type'' information doesn't matter, then).
     101In Trac 0.12 `trac-admin` no longer asks questions related to repositories. Therefore, by default Trac is not connected to any source code repository, and the ''Browse Source'' toolbar item will not be displayed.
     102You can also explicitly disable the `trac.versioncontrol.*` components (which are otherwise still loaded)
     103{{{
     104[components]
     105trac.versioncontrol.* = disabled
     106}}}
    102107
    103 For some systems, it is possible to specify not only the path to the repository,
     108For some version control systems, it is possible to specify not only the path to the repository,
    104109but also a ''scope'' within the repository. Trac will then only show information
    105110related to the files and changesets below that scope. The Subversion backend for
    106111Trac supports this; for other types, check the corresponding plugin's documentation.

     144'''Caveat:''' ''don't confuse a Trac environment directory with the source code repository directory.''

     146This is a common beginners' mistake.
     147It happens that the structure for a Trac environment is loosely modelled after the Subversion repository directory
     148structure, but those are two disjoint entities and they are not and ''must not'' be located at the same place.
