Is there any software that will allow me to generate trouble tickets (for Trac, Team Foundation Server, etc.) from TODO or otherwise annotated comments in the source code?

Note that Visual Studio can display TODO comments in a list of tasks. It's just a list, so of course, everything related to a real bug tracking system is missing. – MainMa May 14 '12 at 19:10
IDEA does something similar. – Alex Feinman May 22 '12 at 17:55

For Trac, there is a plugin called 'codetags' which provides a summary of encoded/tagged source comments without creating an actual ticket for each item.

Perhaps with some adaption or further extension, this plugin could help you create a ticket, or a batch of tickets based on tagged comments.
