ID Category Task Type Severity Summary Status  desc Progress Assigned To Due In Version Opened Last Edited
2160Backend/CoreBug ReportLowCannot "accept" PM close request if already closedUnconfirmed
14.07.201614.07.2016 Task Description

If a task creator requested closure, and someone (developer) closes the task explicitly, the PM request cannot be later ‘accepted’ and the PM request remains in the queue.

Workaround - Deny request and queue item is removed OK.

It looks like the PM request button invoked details.close which returns early if task is already closed.

26.08.201626.08.2016 Task Description

The user preferences and the add new user screens both allow you to set the timezone offset of the user, however, we are only provided with whole hour offsets from GMT. This makes it impossible to select our timezone here in India, which is GMT+5:30 - IST(Indian Standard Time - Asia/Kolkata as per TZ Zoneinfo). In addition, there are also timezones in the GMT+x:45, which wouild also require to be handled. Note, this is totally independent of DST Changes, since some of the countries use DST(Like in Australia) and others do not(Like India).

Here is a link with more details of the same -

I will be trying to identify and fix the codebase to resolve this, and will hopefully have a patch to submit soon.

2315Backend/CoreBug ReportLowFiling a new task is possible with no details in the ma...Unconfirmed
21.11.201621.11.2016 Task Description

When filing a task, it’s possible to submit the task without any information at all being added to the main body of the ticket. This leads to reports that are of no value because the user can simply add some vague title, hit submit, and then wonder why nothing happens other than someone closing it later as invalid.

The main body of the ticket should be considered a required field and should throw an error if nothing is in the box.

symfony/event-dispatcher suggests installing symfony/http-kernel ()
guzzle/guzzle suggests installing guzzlehttp/guzzle (Guzzle 5 has moved to a new package name. The package you have installed, Guzzle 3, is deprecated.)

2481Backend/CoreInformationLowMove to MVCUnconfirmed
10.08.201810.08.2018 Task Description

That way you can just protect the setup routes after installation, etc.

And have a much less cumbersome .htaccess file.

And take sensitive files outside of the server path and not risk letting them get out in the public

2484Backend/CoreInformationLowIncrease min. version of PHP requirementUnconfirmed
10.08.201810.08.2018 Task Description

Then you can gracefully drop support of old MySQL extension AND drop the need for password compat, since BCRYPT and password_hash are built into PHP from version 5.5 onwards

2524EmailInformationLowSMTP Mailer doesn't accept custom portsUnconfirmed
05.11.201827.11.2018 Task Description

Did you installed an official release or did you used an inoffical docker?!
MySQL 8.0.12, 7.2.9 on debian buster

Steps done to create the problem:
Enter server:port at Mail-Settings

Expected behavior: would make use of the custom port

Experienced behavior:
TLS Errors

          if ($fs->prefs['email_tls']) {
              $swiftconn = Swift_SmtpTransport::newInstance($fs->prefs['smtp_server'], 587, 'tls');
          } else if ($fs->prefs['email_ssl']) {
              $swiftconn = Swift_SmtpTransport::newInstance($fs->prefs['smtp_server'], 465, 'ssl');
          } else {
              $swiftconn = Swift_SmtpTransport::newInstance($fs->prefs['smtp_server']);

Should be changed to

          $someTemporaryVariable = explode(':',$fs->prefs['smtp_server']);
          if ($fs->prefs['email_tls']) {
              $swiftconn = Swift_SmtpTransport::newInstance($someTemporaryVariable[0], $someTemporaryVariable[1] || 587, 'tls');
          } else if ($fs->prefs['email_ssl']) {
              $swiftconn = Swift_SmtpTransport::newInstance($someTemporaryVariable[0], $someTemporaryVariable[1] || 465, 'ssl');
          } else {
              $swiftconn = Swift_SmtpTransport::newInstance($someTemporaryVariable[0], $someTemporaryVariable[1] || 25);
2549User InterfaceBug ReportLowOauth register template always shows "Username already ...Unconfirmed
06.05.201906.05.2019 Task Description

RC9 running on CentOS LAMP stack

Steps done to create the problem:
Set up google as an oauth provider.
Have a user click “Sign in with Google” in the login box.
User connects their account with Flyspray.
Google redirects the user back to Flyspray
The return screen (on flyspray) asks for a username.

Expected behavior:
No warning about duplicate username should be shown on initial page load since no username was entered yet

Experienced behavior:
A warning about the username being already taken is shown.

It appears there is no logic for showing or hiding that warning in register.oauth.tpl

(It would be great if flyspray was able to just use the email as a username to make the UX even better/simpler.)

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/ 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?!

Steps done to create the problem:
Create a file 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.
