705.08.201908.08.2019 Task Description

I gave a role the following privileges:

  • view own tasks
  • modify own tasks
  • view comments
  • add comments

A user with the assigned role can still modify the task descriptions and task details. (I want that user to only be able to add comments.)
I think there is a bug.
Is there a fix or walk around?
Thx

2575Backend/CoreFeature RequestLowability to view and reset Flyspray default settingsNew
0%
19.09.201919.09.2019 Task Description

Motivation

Over the years the count of possible Flyspray configuration options has grown. Meanwhile there are ~60 global Flyspray settings stored in the prefs database table in contrast to only 14 entries of the 0.9.7 (not 0.9.9.7!) version from around 2005. But each configuration setting might add a little to the feeling of overwhelming when there are too much switches, buttons, checkboxes and probability of a misconfiguration raises due misunderstood or overseen settings.

But Flyspray still aims to be easy to use and work with while being accurate and customizable.

Proposal

Having a way to view the description and default value of each option would probably give people administrating a Flyspray installation a better understanding of each setting and confidence in making good decisions for their use case.

With the flyspray-install.xml file within the setup folder we yet have an elegant solution that is waiting to unlock its power!

Unfortunately the setup/ folder requires (until now at least) to be removed after install or upgrade. So we need a way to keep the flyspray-install.xml of the installed version. A trivial way would be to copy it to the include/ directory after any install or upgrade, but also other solutions could be.

Keeping the flyspray-install.xml could making following features easier:

  • Reading default value of prefs setting. That could be shown for example as css title attribute /tooltip for each setting in the matching admin forms.
  • Reading default value and field description of any table field using the descr feature of ADOdb xmlschema03.
  • Comparing the real database structure with the table structures in flyspray-install.xml . This could be useful if someone extended or fiddled with database/tables to compare with official Flyspray releases. Or for developers to compare if an database upgrade went well and as intended.
  • Having the description of a setting or database field contained within the flyspray-install.xml is good at one place and the information is not spread around like in an external manual/wiki that maybe get unmaintained, not in sync with the application or get even lost over the years.
  • Using the xml format makes a migration easier (in a broader context, to Flyspray or away from Flyspray)
  • Using the descr tag could be used to hold information which field(s) of a database table is/are foreign key field(s) pointing to primary key field(s) of another table, even if ADODB xmlschema03 does not support it yet. Would generating database schema diagram directly from flyspray-install.xml possible. (instead of manually painting it that gets outdated when structure changes)

Things to take care:

  • ADOdb and xmlschema03 does not handle table comments and field comments yet. The descr tag so is there only used when looking into the .xml file, but it does not appear in the real database schema. To make this happen, there is a good portion of contribution to the ADOdB project required (making pull request, but also get them reviewed, tested, accepted and released with a ADOdb stable release)
  • ADOdb xmlschema03 does not define or handle foreign key constraints. Adding that would require a substantial amount of constribution to get it working reliable for all supported databases that could use foreign key constraints.
  • limits of table comment length, field comment length depend on database type and database version
2577User InterfaceFeature RequestVery Lowdistinguish between anonymous reporter and deleted userNew
0%
18.10.201918.10.2019 Task Description

When a user is deleted from Flyspray, their opened tasks, closed task and task comments are then shown as Anonymous Submitter, the same way as anonymous reporters (not really anonymous, just that user does not have login account, but usually their email address is stored within that task data).

Currently just the entry from users table are deleted when a user is deleted. Their internal user_id integer is still within tasks and comments fields, and maybe some other tables too. So there is not a ON DELETE SET NULL rule or something like that applied. As it is just an autoincremented number by the system, this is not personal data imho and should be no problem for GDPR, but gives Flyspray the ability to distinguish between anon reporters and deleted users. Well, we could also look if there is an email address within task table entry for notification of anonymous reporter, but there are also tasks possible that have no user_id nor an email address.

It might by useful to present that information differently like deleted user or showing the info differently like icon + title-tooltip with explanation.

Also interesting what happens with mentions of a deleted username in a comment or task description. (see FS#2322)

The user isn’t in database, but deleting that now gone user should not modify tasks or comment where that username was mentioned I think.
But what if another user registers under that now gone username? In that case that new user would inherit that mentions. Probably we can ignore that edge case as there will be not much things will happen with an old mention in old tasks/comments.

2581User InterfaceFeature RequestLowreplace bitmap icons of default themeNew
20%
31.10.201905.04.2021 Task Description

I played with adding a dark mode color theme to the default CleanFS theme.

To make the dark theme just simple exchange some colors, the bitmap icons should be replaced with alternatives.

Easiest would be using the fontawesome font icons as Flyspray still uses them and they can simply get a css color assigned.

Examples

  • caret of tasklist
  • the ‘select all’ icon of tasklist, but also used at some more locations.
  • some icons in the Flyspray main toolbar (Overview, Tasklist, Event log, ..)
  • the black calendar icons for date selects
  • maybe the file type icons for attachments

Editors

  • Dokuwiki toolbar fixed in devel for Flyspray 1.0-rc10
  • CKEditor: some modern CKEditor themes support color/dark mode, I will probably choose the moona-lisa theme as default.

On the Flyspray homepage, no informations about https://github.com/flyspray/flyspray

A lot of people think that the project is dead.

In the same time, can you change the https://github.com/Flyspray to https://github.com/flyspray ?

No lost, you can try it already works but it is not the default.

https://github.com/organizations/Flyspray/settings/profile → “Rename organization” and replace Flyspray → flyspray.

02.05.202002.05.2020 Task Description

When a tasklist contains the duedate column and the user sorts by duedate ascending, the tasks that do not have a duedate set should not be listed first. Instead they should be listed after the tasks with duedates.

This way a user can see the task with the earliest duedate first instead of seeing a bunch of probably not so important tasks without duedates set.

2610User InterfaceFeature RequestLowEffort pop-up timerNew

207.05.202024.08.2020 Task Description

It would be terrific to have a small pop-up window that appears when you click to start tracking of an item. In the window could be:

  • the task name
  • a timer
  • a button to close the timer pop-up and jump to the effort tracking screen, or even to stop the effort timer in FlySpray if possible.

This would help tremendously to remind a developer that he has one or more timers going in FlySpray.

If multiple timers are started, there could be multiple timer windows, each identified by the task name showing as part of the window (title bar or some text near the timer).

2635User InterfaceFeature RequestMediumimprove usability of add/remove tags to/from tasksPlanned

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.

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.

I tried hacking it in the core: In the class.user.php at the end of the get_perms method I added:
$this→perms[$proj_id]['add_comments'] = 1;

But I has nothing changed. The I removed the check if the user had the right to make a comment in the template file, now I have a comment field for everyone, but anom user get a error message saying, that they should enter a comment... I searched a lot in the core files, but I don´t find the point where the comment a written in the database... I would a great help if you could give at least a hint :)

Another thing i tried was changing the user contructor, that every user with a negative ID get the ID 2, witch is a special "anom" user. But then you could not log out, a the admin not in...
