    2424||The `dir` attribute specifies the location of the repository in the filesystem. It corresponds to the value previously specified in the option `[trac] repository_dir`. The `alias` and `dir` attributes are mutually exclusive. || 
    2525||`hidden` ||When set to `true`, the repository is hidden from the repository index page in the source browser. Browsing the repository is still possible, and links referencing the repository remain valid. || 
    26 ||`name` ||The `name` attribute specifies the leading path element to the repository. || 
    2726||`type` ||The `type` attribute sets the type of version control system used by the repository. Trac supports Subversion out-of-the-box, and plugins add support for many other systems. If `type` is not specified, it defaults to the value of the `[trac] repository_type` option. || 
    2827||`url` ||The `url` attribute specifies the root URL to be used for checking out from the repository. When specified, a "Repository URL" link is added to the context navigation links in the source browser, that can be copied into the tool used for creating the working copy. || 
    2928 
    30 The `name` attribute and one of `alias` or `dir` are mandatory. All others are optional. 
     29A repository `name` and one of `alias` or `dir` attributes are mandatory. All others are optional.

    3231After adding a repository, the cache for that repository must be re-synchronized once with the `trac-admin $ENV repository resync` command. 
     
    4140The main advantage of specifying repositories in `trac.ini` is that they can be inherited from a global configuration (see the [wiki:TracIni#GlobalConfiguration global configuration] section of TracIni). One drawback is that, due to limitations in the `ConfigParser` class used to parse `trac.ini`, the repository name is always all-lowercase.

    43 The following example defines two Subversion repositories named `project` and `lib`, and a hidden alias to `project` as the default repository. This is a typical use case where a Trac environment previously had a single repository (the `project` repository), and was converted to multiple repositories. The alias ensures that links predating the change continue to resolve to the `project` repository.

    5859Note that `name.alias = target` makes `name` an alias for the `target` repo, not the other way around. 
     
    127128Note that calling `trac-admin` in your Subversion hooks can slow down the commit and log editing operations on the client side. You might want to use the [trac:source:trunk/contrib/trac-svn-hook contrib/trac-svn-hook] script which starts `trac-admin` in an asynchronous way. The script also comes with a number of safety checks and usage advices which should make it easier to set up and test your hooks. There's no equivalent `trac-svn-hook.bat` for Windows yet, but the script can be run by Cygwin's bash.

    129 See the [http://svnbook.red-bean.com/en/1.5/svn.reposadmin.create.html#svn.reposadmin.create.hooks section about hooks] in the Subversion book for more information. Other repository types will require different hook setups. Please see the plugin documentation for specific instructions.

     132Git hooks can be used in the same way for explicit syncing of git repositories. Add the following to `.git/hooks/post-commit`: 
     133{{{#!sh 
     134REV=$(git rev-parse HEAD) 
     135trac-admin /path/to/env changeset added <my-repository> $REV 
     136}}} 
     137 
     138For Mercurial, add the following entries to the `.hgrc` file of each repository accessed by Trac (if [trac:TracMercurial] is installed in a Trac `plugins` directory, download [source:plugins/0.13/mercurial-plugin/tracext/hg/hooks.py hooks.py] and place it somewhere accessible):
