223.08.201524.08.2015 Task Description

It's old. There has been a newer version 2.0. Even that one is not supported anymore, although some documents still remain available. The calendar component relies on its language translations files to be complete, or it breaks. Unfortunately, as I found out a few weeks ago, they are not, after switching the default language from english to my native one. Without having a good replacement for it, some of the translations for flyspray itself we've been getting lately are half-way unusable. Not for an ordinary user, but for anyone actually having to edit a task and its due date.

If a project has no versions defined yet and there are also no 'global' versions defined,
there is not need for displaying the version selects.

Same for categories. If no categories in project and no global categories then no need for displaying a cat select.

Maybe a tooltip/hint in the extended search form to inform the user that the fields were hidden for that reason.

A rounding would look better !

Running Alpha2 now, Cannot use this on 'reported version' here on this site

Edit: Rounding is adhoc fixed on 2015-06-21 in dev in template file, but code should IMHO be centralized, not template, see comments

1960Backend/CoreBug ReportMediumforeign key relations between versions and tasksNew

209.03.201513.08.2015 Task Description

It seem that when deleting a version entry in a project, that tasks that have this version assigned are still connected to this deleted version. For example FS#1222 (on 2015-03-09).

There are several options to solve such things:

  • Deny deletion of version as long as tasks assigned to this project version.
    • Either by doing a testing SQL query to check this case coded in PHP. Take care to keep this centralized, must also be respected by an eventually later added Flyspray API (XMLRPC or whatever).
    • add SQL foreign key constraints with ON DELETE RESTRICT
      • Pro: some business logic can be directly enforced by SQL.
      • Cons: higher requirements for hosting, if using mysql innodb tables must be available on the hosting
  • Move the tasks of this version to a default fallback version before deleting the version tag.
    • Either doing one transaction doing : 1. move the tasks to its fallback version, 2. delete the version
    • add SQL foreing key constraint with ON DELETE SET $fallbackversionid. Some pros & cons like on the the denying option.

The same for other assignments for tasks.

This issue is similiar to the massop issue: (https://github.com/Flyspray/flyspray/issues/130)

109.08.201509.08.2015 Task Description

The Flyspray Manual ( http://www.flyspray.org/manual/ ) does not even hint of it, and as long as i am not logged in there's no indication anywhere in the interface that i would eventually get to do it after i manage to log-in.

In fact, i've come here to learn how to use your software, considering the fact that the site where it was deployed did not provide much help. And after i logged in into that site ( http://www.uzbl.org/bugs/ ) i still don't see any "add new task" option. That's IMO a discover-ability fail, and it originates in your own design: disabled features should not be hidden, lest users think you didn't bother to code such features. Also, you say i shouldn't report bugs against versions earlier than 0.9.9.7, but how do i know which version of Flyspray are they using?

2023NotificationsFeature RequestLowInform users if reminder is disabled in system settingsNew
0%
04.08.201504.08.2015 Task Description

There are 5 possible cases that IMHO should be handled more user friendly:

  1. There is no cronjob for the reminder (schedule.php) setup → Reminders are never sent
  2. Reminding is disabled in the global settings → Reminders are never sent
  3. Reminder setting 'email' only → Reminders are only sent to users who set their notification setting to 'email' or 'both' and setup an email address
  4. Reminder setting 'jabber' only → Reminders are only sent to users who set their notification setting to 'jabber' or 'both' and setup a jabber address
  5. Project notification setting not set → ??? (research...)
  • If notification is disabled (1. or 2.), the notification tab on 'task details page' should adapt to that I think. (by css style or message or tooltip)
  • If notification is restricted to only one notification channel, the current user should be informed on notification tab on 'task details page' if he would receive notifications with his current notification settings.

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' *

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.)

2007Backend/CoreBug ReportLowtime on project overview activity timelinesNew

18.07.201518.07.2015 Task Description

I find it irritating to have the oldest activity on the right side and newest activity on the left side of the small activity bars.

There is also no time scale description. This could be added by showin it on :hover to keep the simple appearance.

A complete new feature would be to replace the image generation by rendering the bars in the html in the same request, e.g by inline svg or canvas element. This would enable adding some interactivity with the activity bars..
A related feature request is FS#1991 (project progress)

1988Installer and UpgraderBug ReportMediumPassword Field for AdminUnconfirmed
50%
302.04.201512.05.2015 Task Description

The installer requests a password for the admin account, and provides a default one.

Because this field is not type=”password”, the browser caches this data for any field named “admin_password”

This also applies to future installations of the software.

I have marked this as critical as this can pose a security hazard. A different implementation would be allowing entry of password, or in the case of wanting to provide a default one, have two password fields prepopulated, and a text one prepopulated so that it can be viewed by the end user.

1836Backend/CoreFeature RequestLowNeed permission option to view only own tasksPlanned
80%
1.1 devel727.02.201322.04.2015 Task Description

In global permissions there is 'View tasks'. This makes it so a user can view all tasks. Need a way instead that they can view only their own tasks, for example a permission called 'View own tasks'.

If 'View own tasks' is checked for a user, in the project list we should only show projects which contain tickets that that user is a part of. Within a given project we should then only show tickets that the user is a part of if they have that permission set.

So for example if 'View tasks' is set, show user all tasks. 'View tasks' is not set, but 'View own tasks' is set then show them only their own tasks and projects.

1.1 devel220.03.201522.03.2015 Task Description

They are currently two separate mechanisms. Shouldn't be so. Events happen always, notifications when someone should be or have chosen to be notified about those events.

Besides, the current code is just a total mess that should be fixed/rewritten anyway, and we unfortunately also overlooked during the development phase 2 things: one new table, users_emails, and the fact that the user is now allowed to give several email addresses separated by a semicolon.

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
1720Backend/CoreFeature RequestLowBetter Access Control Lists and User / Group ManagementPlanned
0%
1.1 devel301.05.201220.03.2015 Task Description

We need to have a better way to do user rights, group rights and manage users.

Here is what I am thinking, global administration can go to a ACL tab. Click on it and you have a simple way to add a new user / group. Two tabs on top are User Rights and Group Rights. These are global so each project will inherit the global setting for user / group.

Clicking on User Rights tab will lists users with a table to grant user rights. Specific to that user, it would be the same for group rights tab.

You can also search by a user name. This will make things faster to find that specific user.

On Mac OS Safari:

I just closed a task and wrote the following into the comment for closing:

"See also F.S.#.14" (of course without the points). When I then click the link in the comment box (below the task details) I'm redirected to:
"http:/flyspray.stefan-herz%0Aog.tld/index.php?do=details&task_id=%0A14". No matter if #14 is closed or not.
It worked with Firefox.

Any suggestions?
