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).

PHP 8.0 is now released (2020-11-26) and Flyspray should be made compatible with it.

  • Replace removed and deprecated functions with alternatives in our source code.
  • Upgrade used libraries or make used libraries compatible:
    • post github issue or pull requests for ADODB
    • upgrade used dokuwiki or make changes in our integration (probably just review our as official dokuwiki project contains too much stuff we do not need and changed much)
    • review used geshi
    • upgrade our swiftmailer version to PHP8 compatible version
    • upgrade our oauth2-client stuff to PHP8 compatible version
  • The @ operator no longer silences fatal errors. Some checks in installer or other areas might not work anymore as expected when the @-operator was used as silencer for previous PHP versions.
2625User InterfaceTODOLowavoid password manager popups in admin prefs areaNew

peterdd110.02.202110.02.2021 Task Description

We must teach browsers not to use some input fields in the admin prefs area to offer to store it in their password manager.

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Login with Firefox as admin into Flyspray. (Maybe other browsers behave same)
  2. Go to admin prefs area (top right gear icon)
  3. Click link somewhere else (so leaving admin prefs page)
  4. Firefox browser pops up password manager as it detected some password input fields on admim prefs setting page. But in this case this is not wanted.

Either by using different input field names where the browser does not assume it is a login password field or find input field attribute to tell them.

auto-complete="off"

is not working anymore in browsers for password fields.

webbrowser: Firefox 85.0.2

Popup probably triggered by the password fields for configuring Email and XMPP notification: smtp_pass and jabber_password input fields. Firefox heuristic is too stupid to detect that these are for server configuration, not user login fields!

Neither

autocomplete="new-password"

nor

autocomplete="one-time-code"

attribute helped.

Stubborn Firefox ..

There should be only one request to

The request is made:

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.

113.08.202113.08.2021 Task Description

From mailing list:

Hello,

I could not find if this was already posted before. We have this basic profile where customers only can create new tasks and receive some notifications when the status or details change. The idea is that they do not see the comments, we want to use them for internal communication.
The think is that we just realized that they can not see the comments when they login but they receive them as notifications by email!

We want this notification for the admin users involved in the task but not for the customers. Is there a way to correct this behavior?

Thanks,
Manu

11725.03.200705.05.2019 Task Description

I have been working with Eventum (http://www.mysql.org/downloads/other/eventum/) for quite sometime now and in contrast, I like Flyspray for its simplicity and practicality. But one thing I badly miss (and something that Eventum scores high) is a Workflow Engine. If not a sophisticated W.E., I (as an Admin / Manager) should be able define role-based state transition rules of the tasks reported in a particular project. For example, I should be able to implement the following scenario:

  1. For a “Developer”, the subsequent tasks from various states. Likewise for other roles
  2. “Developer” should not be able close out the bug reports. He/she can only flag them as implemented. The “Reporter” of the bugs or the “Manager” alone should be able to close out issues
  3. ..
  4. .. it will go on like that ;-)

This feature, in my opinion, is very crucial for corporate organizations to give a serious consideration to Flyspray.

1236User InterfaceFeature RequestLowMark Issue As Verified or UnverifiableUnconfirmed
0%
3409.04.200718.07.2016 Task Description

Currently, the Vote functionality provides users a way to say "this issue is important to me". In addition to that functionality, it would be great for users to have a "Verify" ability on open issues; it would provide users a way to say "yes, this happens to me as well".

A "Verified" label would fit nicely right under "Votes", to the right of the label would be "Yes | No", each option being a link. After clicking Yes or No, or if unable to specify (lack of permissions), the text would display "Yes - # | No - # (% verification)" where '%' is the result of ((Yes/(Yes+No))*100).

This feature should not show up on all issues, though. It does not make sense to "verify" a feature request or todo item, for example. When defining task types, the administrator would specify if a type was "Verifiable" by checking a box in a column next to "Show".

If implemented, two great, mini extra features would be:

  1. The ability for the administrator to set the number of "Yes" verifications an issue would need before it was elevated to the next priority, severity, or both (specified by the administrator).
  2. The ability for the administrator to set the number of "No" verifications an issue would need before it was lowered to the previous priority, severity, or both (specified by the administrator).

Both settings should have an option to be incremental (priority / status increased every x verifications) or not (increases once, no matter how many verifications are received); an "Incremental" checkbox would do nicely. Also, a little "Enabled" checkbox next to both settings would be clearer than having zero act as the disable mechanism.

As with voting, a permission should exist to enable or disable this option for a user group. For larger projects, moderators tasked with verifying bugs could be given the permission whereas smaller projects may leave verifications up to the community.

Lastly, a way to send a notification once the number of "Yes" verifications reached a certain value would also be a great addition.

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.

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?

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

  • Without task number ("FS#...")
  • A download function via button

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.

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?
