2587Backend/CoreTODOMediumdisplay_errors=1 should not set in release candidateUnconfirmed

18.12.201918.12.2019 Task Description

display_errors = 1 should not set in include/fix.inc.php for releases or releases candidate, because with this it is not possibele to disable the error reporting globaly.

The problem is, if I want to enable full error reporting to logfile via “error_log=…” in php.ini, then the error will also full reported to user. Full error reporting is a hig risk for security.

Did you installed an official release or did you used an inoffical docker?!
flyspray-1.0-rc9

Steps done to create the problem:
Create a file php.in in base directory with follow contens:
error_reporting = E_ALL | E_STRICT
log_errors = On
display_errors = Off
error_log = /var/log/php-flyspray-errors.log

Expected behavior:
Errors only to log file

Experienced behavior:
All errors goes also to user.
The option “display_errors = Off” has no effect.

2623EmailBug ReportMediumCompletely unexpected exception on email errorsUnconfirmed

01.02.202115.03.2021 Task Description

An incorrect email configuration may cause flyspray to hung during several seconds and report an exception.

Environment

* Linux Debian 10
* Nginx
* PHP-7.3 FPM
* Mariadb 10.3
* Flyspray 1.0-rc9

Steps done to create the problem:

  1. Cause a misconfiguration in the email configuration (e.g. an email server rejecting the user authentication)
  2. Try to post a comment on a ticket to generate a notification

Expected behavior:

Report the error in a logfile and gently show a user-friendly notification

Experienced behavior:

Flyspray hungs during several seconds and reports a user-unfriendly error:
The exception occurs in conditions that generate email notifications (e.g. posting a comment on a ticket):

Notice: fwrite(): send of 6 bytes failed with errno=104 Connection reset by peer in /var/www/flyspray/vendor/swiftmailer/swiftmailer/lib/classes/Swift/Transport/StreamBuffer.php on line 240 Completely unexpected exception: Expected response code 250 but got code "421", with message "XXX edited XXX"
This should never happend, please inform Flyspray Developers
2635User InterfaceFeature RequestMediumimprove usability of add/remove tags to/from tasksPlanned
70%
1.013.04.202123.04.2021 Task Description

Integrate the selectpure javascript to the new task and edit task form.

By default there is a text field where tag names are separated by ‘;’ character.

Selectpure could instead show the tags with their visual layout with a little ‘x’ inside on the right side for removing a tag and autocomplete when typing a tag name to show existing tags from the flyspray_list_tag-table as possible selections.

Instead implemented a CSS and raw javascript solution with a single taghelper.js without any dependancies.

A button beside the tag input text field toggles a list of available tags for the current task, depending on the project and settings.

Still TODO

  • styling of added tags
  • highlight tags that would be removed when the task will be saved.
  • highlight tags that would be added when the task will be saved.
  • highlight tags that are attached to the task in the available taglist.
  • highlight tags that are added to the task in the available taglist.
  • optimize layout for this feature.
2644Backend/CoreFeature RequestMediummark specific task as spam and punish user account who ...New
0%
08.07.202108.07.2021 Task Description

For users with administrative permissions, a moderation UI for spam tasks could be useful.

For other normal users a “mark as spam”-button (similiar to voting for a task) could help moderators to identify spam tasks.

  1. Modify the spam task: Move to a hidden “Trash” project, replace summary and description with a default spam summary text end empty description.
  2. The decision which kind of punishment of the account who created the spam depends on several things:
    • Is it a previously normal used account who got captured by a bad guy and suddenly started spamming?
    • Is it a fresh bot created account who tried creating many spam task to promote bad websites or do search ranking manipulation?
    • Is it a sneaky smart account who waits for the opportunity to offload spam in a subtile manner?

I think this is not so easy to automate without producing false positives, especially for a project without commercial interest and funding and no huge meta informations like Google or similiar data collecting corporation who have the ability to identify spam waves across the internet.

It would be useful to print a list of tasks in a extended version.
e.g. All tasks from a programmer with all the details of it.

1491User InterfaceFeature RequestLowCustom task table columns for individual usersUnconfirmed
0%
2.0301.07.200801.10.2015 Task Description

Allow individual users to define custom views of the task tables much like the project manager can for the entire project; only on a user scale.

An option for the user to "use default" project settings should be possible and should be the default.
Only pro users will change it to their needs, not the average reporter.

Interesting would be the possibility to change it dynamic on the tasklist view, not only on the myprofile setting page.

Open Question: Simple or complex implementation?

  • Simple: A new varchar field for the user table like it is in the project table and provide the same field chooser like on project setting page.
  • Complex: User settings for global tasklist view and each project. Needs extra 'project_user' (or 'user_project' ;-) ) join table. Well, maybe over engineered.

This information is already stored in the table "reminders" in field "last_sent". It might be helpful in some situations, if this date/time would be visible to the user on the reminder list, too.

22.11.200818.04.2009 Task Description

In version 0.9.9.5.1 (unfortunately I couldn't select this version in the dropdown list on the left), reminders can only be created and edited by Admins and Project Managers. I recommend to give Assignees the permission to create reminders for themselves. To minimize any programming impact, his may be done as part of the "edit own tasks" permission.

This topic has been reported by Engie as part of Bug #713 for version 0.9.8 as well: "Also it would be useful if a user could create reminder for himself." Although that bug is already closed ("fixed in devel"), this part is not yet solved in the current version.

1.1 devel11.07.201406.03.2015 Task Description

When entering the wrong SMTP information and then adding a user through Multiple New Users page, the error message is bad. It just says 'this should never happen'. Instead, we need to detect that it is an SMTP authentication error and report that issue to the user more clearly.

1964DocumentationFeature RequestLowOn page documentationNew
0%
11.03.201511.03.2015 Task Description

This is a parent task for all small helping or explaining tooltips that can be maybe added where approriate.

Many people don't like reading external documentations, which sometimes often is also not up to date with the current used version.

If you are doing something in Flyspray and you don't know exactly how it works or have to be done rigth and you must look at documentation, it breaks your workflow.

The best case is if its all perfect intuitive and you don't have to read any help texts. But in the case of more complex operations or things that do many things behind the scene a helping tooltip or explanation can give you a mental map and more trust into what the tool is doing.

1966User InterfaceFeature RequestLowMy votes on myprofileNew
80%
1.1 devel11.03.201503.11.2015 Task Description
  • On the myprofile page have a section to show all my votes I put on tasks. done!
  • Add the possibility to remove own votes from tasks. done!
  • Implement a limitation of the amount of votes a user can put on tasks for a project. Can be enabled/disabled and amount configured. Done!
  • project based vote limitation
  • When a task is finished/closed, remove the user votes from the task and make that vote again available to the user. Maybe safe the existing historic voting count in an extra field of the task as the votes would drop to 0 on closing the task. removed.

We keep the votes, because a task can be reopened everytime and then the old voters and votes should be visible again. In this case the amount of votes on active task could be a bit greater than allowed, but thats no real problem.
The calculation of done votes and available votes based only on open task and project voting limit.

For example on uservoice.com you have 10 voting points. So you as user has to decide where your priorities are to put your votes.

So all users have more or less the same power to vote for tasks.

1971Backend/CoreFeature RequestLowa field like challenge level or doom levelNew
0%
12.03.201512.03.2015 Task Description

We have severity field.
We have priority field.
We have estimated effort field.

But we don't have a fíeld to see how hard a task is to solve. Something like in doom 3d shooter a face from normal/easy to angry/bloody/very hard.

Imaging you have some people in a company, some base educated, some high educated, some are experts in their field, some do repeating easy tasks.

By adding the ability to set a 'doom level' on tasks this can complete the view over a project in addition to severity,priority,effort.

0%
21.03.201521.03.2015 Task Description

It's a little like "text version". So you could use this exported changelog within a new release.

I think good was:

  • Only resolved tasks ordered by date (but of course without displaying the date) and only public accessible tasks
  • Without task number ("FS#...")
  • A download function via button

Currently it seems a user needs two accounts
to login by normal user-password and oauth2 login with facebook,g+ etc.

Better would be if a normal username-password registered user could connect a oauth2-login with his existing login.
