1858Backend/CoreFeature RequestLowClone Tasks and ProjectsMaybe
0%
2.0102.04.201315.09.2017 Task Description

My workplace is piloting Flyspray for an internal project and one feature that my boss was asking about was the ability to clone tasks and projects.

We have reoccurring simultaneous projects that contain a large number of testing tasks, and tasks dependent on other tasks, which makes starting up a new project very tedious. If it was possible to clone the contents of a task, or an entire project, we could create template tasks/projects that would really speed up the workflow.

1866Backend/CoreFeature RequestLowAPI for automatically report a bugMaybe

2.01108.05.201306.03.2015 Task Description

Actually you can't automatically add a bug report. Or i haven't found it.
In a first time a simple report via email or webservice could be great.

- Project Name
- Message
- System
- Version
- Status –> New
- Priority → Normal
- Category –> On a new category (created by default) : 'Automated report bug'

Sorry for bad grammar, i'am not english.

2.0222.06.201312.11.2015 Task Description

Hi,I would like to see a enhancement, where you can submit/edit and assign it to multiple components, as it needs work from multiple sides.

For example: A user asks for a new object to be visualized. This includes work of the GUI designers and altering internal core structures. For internal management, I would like to label this for both teams.

My company maybe changes to a MS SQL Server backed ERP.

In this case it could be nice to have Flyspray customized as CRM working on the same database for integration with ERP.

Well, currently just an idea.

407Backend/CoreFeature RequestMediumPlugin systemConfirmed

2.0261404.12.200417.01.2013 Task Description

Everything is currently hard-coded. Create a plugin system that allows a module to be simply "dropped into" a plugins/ directory, enabled in the options, and have the plugin just work.

Possibilities might include alternative methods of notification, perhaps a documentation subsystem, or even simple things like voting for tasks.

The user should NOT have to edit existing Flyspray source code to make a plugin work.

1673Backend/CoreBug ReportHighOnly white screen after upgrade to 1.0 - reasonsConfirmed
10%
1.1 devel31412.01.201117.08.2016 Task Description

After I upgraded to version 1.0 (the upgrade was successful), flyspray only shows a white page (and the source in firefox shows, that the page is completely white).


Please help us finding the roots of these bugs!

Please report what you were exactly doing before this happend, report us your steps made, the used php version, used OS version, and such information.

We think most cases of that “white screen” are relying on the third party vendor libraries behavior we use.
When a library detects an error, sometimes they just call die() or exit; of php, but suppress error messages. So the script just stopped not giving any output to browser.

The dev versions from github use composer for installing the required libraries. We will package them on the final release together and make sure most cases of “white screen” are fixed.

Just show me all events when I click the Event Log tab (limited to x number). If I want to filter the results down I’ll use the UI.
Currently, I click Event Log and get no information. Then I have to build a query of what I want to see (every time!).

1753Backend/CoreFeature RequestMediumUsergroup Restriction: Only View SummaryConfirmed
0%
1.1 devel4220.06.201227.06.2016 Task Description

I was really impressed with Flyspray and about to use it as our bug tracker, but then I discovered quite a big problem. You can't restrict users from seeing full task details.

I would really love the ability to let them only see the summary. My reason being is that I'm needing a bug tracker for my game, and bugs reported can be easily abused, and will be abused, if people can just read bug reports and see how to replicate them.

The reason I don't like just unchecking the "View Tasks" option, is because they wont be able to see if there is already a task about the bug, so we would just get flooded with duplicate reports on the same bugs.

30%
1.1 devel4112.04.201309.07.2018 Task Description

When some url to a bug is redirected to the login page, because the user does not have the right to see the bug without login, the user should be redirected after the login to the url he wanted to see.

Maybe redirect to /login/?next=/task/X and put the next-url in a hidden field in the login-form, so flyspray can redirect to the correct page after login.
Even preserving anchor-urls (#comment-YYYY) would be cool, but i guess this needs Javascript to work.

1.0907.03.201511.11.2015 Task Description

This is taken from FS#1753:

The second reason being there is no way that I know of to automatically set a project usergroup to new members. I only have 1 project, but it seems the Global groups aren’t working (can still see tasks if “View Tasks” is unchecked) and I don’t know how to fix that.

And what I have to say - it is hard to tell if you are on the Flyspray admin settings area or on the admin settings of a project.

Cheapest way is adding some CSS to distinguish this for the user.

But there is in fact more to do to make it user friendly.

  • TODO: list configurations for project(task types, categories, ..) in Manage Project should also show the system wide list values as hint to avoid duplication.
  • TODO: project user groups overview should show system wide user group infos as info for project managers to avoid unnecessary complicated configuration settings.
  • TODO: visualize related permissions that can overrule eachother like ‘view_task’ overrules ‘view_own_tasks’ to avoid misconfigurations
1955Backend/CoreTODOLowCodestyleConfirmed
0%
1.1 devel307.03.201509.03.2015 Task Description

So, the new website is now online, the codestyle part is empty and I think we need to speak about them...

I can happily reformat the whole project once we have decided the whole thing. Don't forget, too strict code style leads to code style not being respected, so crap like max line length should be avoided. I personnaly don't know anybody coding from their mobile phones. I sometimes do check some code on it, but long lines never disturbed me as long as the line is not 5k chars long.

I think we should go for a standard one.

Things like:

- Do use brackets even if single lined condition
- Variable names have spaces replaced by the next words first letter in capital, start with a lower case
- Same goes for functions
- Etc etc. Pretty much of PSR-1 maybe 2

What I don't understand is the use of spaces, and I'd be for tabs instead of 4 spaces (some files use 2 spaces, some 3...). Most of the dev tools are by default set to use tabs and not spaces. And be seeing the code now we see that it clearly. So i'd be for reformatting into tabs, the whole, and same time fixing the broken identation in every files.

I could write it down for the website

1956Backend/CoreTODOLowDatesConfirmed
0%
1.1 devel307.03.201509.03.2015 Task Description

Upon my implementation for an easier date selector, I think we should rework it as follow:

  • Drop extended date concept
  • Add a Time format
  • Extended dates field become a concatenation of date format and time format.
    • The above make it easier to select your preferences
  • Rename GMT to UTC
  • Add automatic daylight saving configs

1.0516.03.201512.10.2015 Task Description

Due to the needed implementation of an anti csrf system into Flyspray 1.0,
this are a side effect issues we need to address:

Due the required replacement of action links to form buttons:

  • The user cannot just see anymore the target url of the action by hovering over the link. We can compensate that in the simpliest case by using the title-tag as additional info to the user. Trust not full reestabilished that way, but better than nothing and user has fear to click a form button.

Javascriptless CSS3-toggles:

  • Some clickable labels don’t show pointer icon when :hover. CSS issue, easy fix.

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.

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? :-)
