From the overview view for a project the progress charts should be large and show dates so can have a better sense for absolute progress and then when click it should see it full size going back to start of project and showing dates.

8122.06.201511.02.2017 Task Description

There should be some help at the configuration sections for setting up jabber/xmpp notifications.

How someone can test it?

Must the admin setup his own jabber/xmpp server or are there recommended servers?

I registered with psi+ instant messager as peterdd@ubuntu-jabber.de at ubuntu-jabber.de for testing
and configured it here in my account too, but got no jabber messages.

Email notifications works and I set up both sending.

1.1 devel23.07.201523.07.2015 Task Description

We should change the document logic a bit here. For public projects search engines like well structured pages more then others. And we get a consistent structure too in future for Flyspray.

This I have in mind

Project area name ("All Projects" or "Project name")

  • Currently: h1-tag
  • My wish: not a h1-tag anymore here

Admin setting / Project setting pages, title of the sub pages

  • Currently: h3-tag!
  • My wish: h1 tag

Section names in these pages

  • Currently: h4-tags
  • My wish: h2 tags, subsubs then h3,...

Task view page

Task name=summary

  • Currently: h2 tag
  • My wish: h1 tag

Task descriptions then can use structuring their task description starting as h2,h3,h4 (done by dokuwiki renderer for example)

Toplevel project overview /dashboard

  • Currently: h2 for each project name
  • My wish:
  • * keep h2 for each project name
  • * h1 for the page heading (maybe hidden by css)

New Task page

  • Currently: h2 for summary and tags. Wrong logical nesting!
  • My wish: drop the h2 for form field labels

Reports page

  • Currently: h3 tag
  • My wish: h1 tag

Roadmap page

  • Currently: h3 tag for each milestone
  • My wish:
  • * h2 tag for each milestone,
  • * h1 tag for heading (maybe hidden by css)

MyProfile page

  • Currently: h3 tag for each section
  • My wish:
  • * h2 tag for each section
  • *h1 tag for heading (maybe hidden by css)

(Sure the theme.css must be adapted to this change.)

2019User InterfaceFeature RequestMediumtitle -tag Waiting on Customer
0%
1.1 devel26.07.201526.07.2015 Task Description

I vote for removing $fs->prefs['page_title'] from title-tag.

Comments welcome!

Explanation:

When the user has many open flyspray tabs, he cannot distinguish them at the first look, because the tab header is filled with redundant information of the systemwide 'page_title' name.

But the browsers also show the favicon.ico of the website (BTW: we need a better one, with some color - and the big webapp icons too for iPhone & co..)
So the user has indication that the tab is a flyspray tab and the page_title text is redundant and wasted space there.

Also search engines could better represent search results if they group together the results from one website. (google shows most relevant pages together if google is sure the whole website is the best search result for the search query (ranked #1)

flyspray> grep -r 'setTitle' *
includes/class.tpl.php:    public function setTitle($title)

The flyspray admin users should be able to test their jabber/xmpp configuration, check if sending jabber notification is working and if not, give useful error messages back, so the user is able to fix the configuration.

12.08.201520.08.2015 Task Description

I see php deprecation notices with php 5.6+ from the geshi syntax highlighter plugin of dokuwiki plugin sometimes. (seems to be go away on the second view, so probably not seen on cached views)

It can't be found easy with

grep -r preg_replace | grep '/e'

Because the preg_replace modifiers are added dynamic depending on the target programming language. At least in the version we have in flyspray.

1.0523.08.201517.04.2019 Task Description
  • Use github releases for the release? peterdd: Yes, currently only source releases without 3rd party vendors.

The Flyspray 1.0alpha1 .zip file release unzips directly to the current directory.

.zip files from github unzip to it’s own directory (flyspray-master.zip unzips to flyspray-master/ ). This is a bit safer, because you cannot accidently mess your directory structure with it.

  • The release should contain the binary fontawesome files instead of linking to the external CDN. Removes one dependency/singlepointoffailure. How this can be configured for automation? included in Flyspray source now. :-)
  • document how a release is exactly created. (consistency, reliability, automation, knowledge sharing for maintainers see below :-) )
  • Get in contact with os distributions, that could add Flyspray releases to their repositories (*BSD, Linux distributions, ..) This repositories could add the dependencies like ADODB within the packages (.rpm, .deb,..)
  • Get in contact with web hosting providers who provide integreated 1-click installs of software for their web hossting customers.
  • Get in contact with container builders (docker, ..)

Steps how to do a Flyspray release (since Flyspray 1.0 RC)

  1. Edit includes/class.flyspray.php on github.com and set the correct version for the release there (remove the ' dev’ from the version string), commit as new branch e.g. 1.0-rc1
  2. Prepare a new release on https://github.com/Flyspray/flyspray/releases , write a summary of changes since last release, choose the branch you created in the previous step, save as “draft”.
  3. “Release” the Flyspray source on github when satisfied with layout
  4. Run buildscripts for different php versions (see comments at FS#2040)
  5. Upload the created .zip and .tgz files to https://github.com/Flyspray/flyspray/releases
  6. Upload the created .zip and .tgz files to https://github.com/Flyspray/flyspray.github.io/tree/master/packed stored since 1.0-rc2 only on https://github.com/Flyspray/flyspray/releases to avoid redundancy
  7. Test the created blobs on different servers too.
  8. Edit the https://github.com/Flyspray/flyspray.github.io/blob/master/_docs/download.md and link the source and packaged .zip and .tgz files
  9. Write a new article with a summary of highlights of changes since last release for the www.flyspray.org frontpage on https://github.com/Flyspray/flyspray.github.io/tree/master/_posts/News
  10. Send an email to the Flyspray mailing list
  11. Important: If all is nice and shiny: Update the version string on www.flyspray.org https://github.com/Flyspray/flyspray.github.io/blob/master/version.txt so admins of flyspray get informed a new Flyspray release is available now. For instance change from 1.0-rc to 1.0-rc1 if you are releasing Flyspray 1.0 RC1. Must be the exact version you set in includes/class.flyspray.php .

Maybe we can use this sequence as template on bugs.flyspray.org for releases? :-)

I wanted to request a feature that will DRAMATICALLY increase the popularity and the usage of flyspray worldwide which is :

One click signup

This can be done by using existing signup solutions like openID, live.com, Google, Facebook ,twitter, Yahoo, gravatar (these are the most universal according to http://www.alexa.com/topsites)

The goal is to give a new user the possibility to sign up in less than 15 sec (and mention this in the signup page)

2085Text RenderingInformationMediumEnabling Color Coding options in CKEDITORUnconfirmed

130.10.201530.10.2015 Task Description

Hi

So I figured out that there are no color coding options (to set text color and background color) for text in the CKEDITOR. I did some changes to CKEDITOR to add those, however, once I submit the text, it does not retain the changes.

Is there a particular reason why these are not enabled in the first place?

I am thinking it would be good add these, so that we can make the important text pop-out to the users.

2089Backend/CoreBug ReportMediumadding same taskid as subtask or related task should be...New
50%
1.0207.11.201518.11.2016 Task Description

Both is a bit illogical, but both is currently possible! ;-)

1 ←- 1

So when setting the parent task id checked for creating loops is needed:

Loop with 2 tasks: 1 ←- 2 ←- 1

Loop with 3 tasks: 1 ←- 2 ←- 3 ←- 1
Loop with n tasks: 1 ←- ... ←- n < – 1

As I think there are currently no recursive reads that could lead to an endless loop, but should be kept in mind when someone wants to programm rendering a gantt chart.
E.g. by limiting the depth of subtasks for example.

231.03.201611.04.2016 Task Description

An assigned ticket can't be edited by a lower privileged user.

Steps to reproduce:

  • One Project, Two Users. User A is Admin, User B is Basic
  • A creates a Task.
  • A take ownership of the Task. (it’s important to do this AFTER saving the task. You cannot assign User A if you are A in this moment. Maybe another Bug...!?)
  • Now B is allowed to take ownershop too. B click now “Add me to assignees”.
  • Now B can edit the task.
  • If B click “save”, the task can’t be saved, because some fields haven’t the correct values (esp: state is now “unconfirmed”). Many error messages said, that unexpected values exist

Some weird moments:

  • Why can B edit a task? He have no rights to edit tasks...
  • If B are Basic and have “edit own Task”-Right too, this bug also exist.
2114TranslationsTODOMediumStandardize the priority meaning across flyspray transl...New
0%
207.04.201626.03.2018 Task Description

Standardize the priority meaning across flyspray translations.

Idea:

0 - priority unset (database field default value)

1 - defer (or very low priority, often results the task is defered, see “Eisenhower principle”)
2 - low
3 - normal
4 - high
5 - very high

6 - flash (house burns, catastrophic event, website down, “boss” decision)

Some other software (other task planers/ email programs) use a 1-5 step priority. So an export feature to other software may merge priority 6 to priority 5 for such software.

In 2012 meaning was changed only in english translation.

Before normal was priority 2 in a 1-6 range, after it is priority 4 in a 1-6 range.
It should be IMHO 3 in that 1-6 range.

I have a major problem. At the first I thought that problem is on my server - Windows OS, IIS. But now when I have second bug tracker site on Apache server and error is the same I know that this is not server error but bug tracker error.

How can I help that we resolve this problem?

If e-mail need’s to be sent I got blank white page and nothing happens.

In attachment is my bug tracker with installer (setup) folder. If this somehow helps it?

Version which is used is 1.0 (latest on web) (edit by peterdd: was a mix of older Flyspray versions). The problem is that nothing works because e-mails are not working..
