just to notify you that since the upgrade to Trac 1.0.5 a few months ago, the 
CommitTicketUpdater plugin is enabled, which enables to automatically adds 
comments in tickets from SVN commit messages.

See https://trac.osgeo.org/gdal/ticket/6519 as an example.

Here's the doc of the CommitTicketUpdater plugin :
 This component hooks into changeset notifications and searches commit messages 
for text in the form of:

command #1
command #1, #2
command #1 & #2
command #1 and #2

Instead of the short-hand syntax "#1", "ticket:1" can be used as well, e.g.:

command ticket:1
command ticket:1, ticket:2
command ticket:1 & ticket:2
command ticket:1 and ticket:2

In addition, the ':' character can be omitted and issue or bug can be used 
instead of ticket.

You can have more than one command in a message. The following commands are 
supported. There is more than one spelling for each command, to make this as 
user-friendly as possible.

close, closed, closes, fix, fixed, fixes
    The specified tickets are closed, and the commit message is added to them 
as a comment. 

references, refs, addresses, re, see
    The specified tickets are left in their current status, and the commit 
message is added to them as a comment. 

A fairly complicated example of what you can do is with a commit message of:

    Changed blah and foo to do this or that. Fixes #10 and #12, and refs #12.

This will close #10 and #12, and add a note to #12.
