2224GreekBug ReportVery LowSemicolon is a bad separatorUnconfirmed
1124.10.201625.10.2016 Task Description

The symbol “;” in Greek is the question mark. So a list of semicolon-separated values looks like a series of questions in Greek. (looks like this: “cat? dog? rabbit?” ;-))

I suggest replacing semicolons with commas as list separators.

In email lists space is good choice too.

2225GreekBug ReportVery LowGreek uses slash for datesConfirmed
324.10.201622.11.2016 Task Description

Short dates in Greek are represented in the majority of cases with slashes (24/10/2016). Very seldom some people may use the dash form (24-10-2016) and hardly ever the dot form (24.10.2016).

So it would be much appreciated if the slash form were a (working) option because as it is dates are a bit confusing to us, especially in a date-time combination (too many numbers in a not-so-obvious format - brain needs extra time to decode it).

1985Database QueriesFeature RequestVery LowFor developers - testing with huge flyspray data setsNew
224.03.201516.03.2016 Task Description

Here I will put some sql examples for the current developers to have a base for testings:

Starting with a default installation with its 1 example project and 1 example task:

I hope we can put all this into valuable phpunit tests for automatic testing with travis-ci.

Still TODO, do not use:
After fresh Flyspray install, add some more projects:

INSERT INTO flyspray_projects (project_title,project_is_active,others_view,anon_open) VALUES('Inactive Project', 0, 1, 1);
INSERT INTO flyspray_projects (project_title,project_is_active,others_view,anon_open) VALUES('Active Project Anonymous Reporting', 1, 1, 1);
INSERT INTO flyspray_projects (project_title,project_is_active,others_view,anon_open) VALUES('Deleted Project', 1, 1, 1);
DELETE FROM flyspray_projects WHERE project_title LIKE 'Deleted Project'; -- delete to have an id gap
INSERT INTO flyspray_projects (project_title,project_is_active,others_view,anon_open) VALUES('Active Project NO Others View', 1, 0, 0);
-- There should now be 4 projects with ids (1,2,3,5).
-- Now lets add some extra roles for a few projects
INSERT INTO flyspray_groups (group_name,project_id,manage_project,view_tasks,open_new_tasks,modify_own_tasks,view_own_tasks,view_groups_tasks) VALUES('Project3 Manager', 3, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1 );
INSERT INTO flyspray_groups (group_name,project_id,manage_project,view_tasks,open_new_tasks,modify_own_tasks,view_own_tasks,view_groups_tasks) VALUES('Project3 Reporter', 3, 0, 1, 0, 1, 1, 1 );
INSERT INTO flyspray_groups (group_name,project_id,manage_project,view_tasks,open_new_tasks,modify_own_tasks,view_own_tasks,view_groups_tasks) VALUES('Project5 Developer', 5, 0, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1 );
-- Then create some more users:
INSERT INTO flyspray_users(user_name,real_name,email_address,account_enabled,tasks_perpage,lang_code) VALUES('tester1','T1Developer','',1,100,'en');
INSERT INTO flyspray_users(user_name,real_name,email_address,account_enabled,tasks_perpage,lang_code) VALUES('tester2','T2Reporter_P3Manager','',1,100,'de');
INSERT INTO flyspray_users(user_name,real_name,email_address,account_enabled,tasks_perpage,lang_code) VALUES('tester3','T3Basic_P3Reporter_P5Developer','',1,100,'fr');
-- And put them into a global group and a few into project roles too:
INSERT INTO flyspray_users_in_groups(user_id,group_id) VALUES(2,2);
INSERT INTO flyspray_users_in_groups(user_id,group_id) VALUES(3,3);
INSERT INTO flyspray_users_in_groups(user_id,group_id) VALUES(3,8);
INSERT INTO flyspray_users_in_groups(user_id,group_id) VALUES(4,4);
INSERT INTO flyspray_users_in_groups(user_id,group_id) VALUES(4,9);
INSERT INTO flyspray_users_in_groups(user_id,group_id) VALUES(4,10);
-- And lets fill the Database with 10 different configured task to simulate different cases:
INSERT INTO flyspray_tasks(project_id,task_type,item_status,supertask_id) VALUES(1,1,1,0); -- id2 in first project
INSERT INTO flyspray_tasks(project_id,task_type,item_status,supertask_id) VALUES(2,1,1,0); -- id3 in inactive project
INSERT INTO flyspray_tasks(project_id,task_type,item_status,supertask_id) VALUES(2,1,1,3); -- id4 in inactive project
INSERT INTO flyspray_tasks(project_id,task_type,item_status,supertask_id) VALUES(3,1,0,6); -- id5 status 0,supertask_id6
INSERT INTO flyspray_tasks(project_id,task_type,item_status,supertask_id) VALUES(3,1,0,0); -- id6
INSERT INTO flyspray_tasks(project_id,task_type,item_status,supertask_id) VALUES(3,1,1,6); -- id7
INSERT INTO flyspray_tasks(project_id,task_type,item_status,supertask_id) VALUES(5,1,1,0); -- id8
INSERT INTO flyspray_tasks(project_id,task_type,item_status,supertask_id) VALUES(5,1,1,8); -- id9
INSERT INTO flyspray_tasks(project_id,task_type,item_status,supertask_id) VALUES(5,1,1,9); -- id10
-- And now lets fill the database with many task referencing the 10 base tasks (10k or more rows) by repeating the following until enough (grows exponential x**2 !
INSERT INTO flyspray_tasks (project_id,task_type,item_status, supertask_id, item_summary) SELECT 3,1,1,FLOOR(RAND()*11),RAND() FROM flyspray_tasks;

These Examples can be used for finding bottle necks or problems on huge installations.

2014Database QueriesFeature RequestVery LowAdd MS SQL Server as database backendMaybe
2120.07.201530.07.2015 Task Description

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.

2063Backend/CoreFeature RequestVery Lowshow closed/open usage count on do=pm&area=XXXNew
29.09.201529.09.2015 Task Description

Currently on

  • do=pm&area=version
  • do=pm&area=os
  • do=pm&area=resolution
  • do=pm&area=status
  • do=pm&area=tags
  • do=pm&area=tasktype

a count of usage in tasks is shown for every property.

Interesting would be if the counter shows the count for open/closed tasks on each row.

2124User InterfaceFeature RequestVery LowDefault avatar can't be restoredConfirmed
227.04.201629.04.2016 Task Description

I unchecked the avatar allowed in the admin panel. I checked it back and set size to 50.
I have to upload an Avatar picture to restore it, but the previous avatar looked like to be html avatar.

Is there a way to restore the html one ?

note: ‘default avatar’ is currently just that guy from the fontawesome webfonts:

2138User InterfaceFeature RequestVery LowOverhaul dokuwiki editor buttonbarNew
17.06.201617.06.2016 Task Description

Rethink the current sets of buttons and their functionality.

Maybe a mousover hint/cheatsheet of available dokuwiki syntax is more helpful in writing fast and efficient.

  • buttongroup links http,email,ftp
  • buttongroup code, code php: why a single button for php? maybe a cheatsheet or subselect for choosing a language (read directory plugins/dokuwiki/inc/geshi for that). Or even better: Let the project administrator define what source code languages are used/popular in a software project and dependend of that setting prefer/promote that languages
  • I miss a blockquote- or cite-tag for citation, which is more semantic than bold, italic, underline buttons. Update: It is the > character followed by text!
  • Show a cheatsheet (by mouseover?) of dokuwiki smileys as defined at plugins/dokuwiki/conf , update to current config of dokuwiki, facepalm for instance is missing

2139User InterfaceFeature RequestVery LowAdd project setting of popular used programming languag...New
1.1 devel17.06.201617.06.2016 Task Description

This is at the moment just a bit brainstorming ..:

Let the project administrator define what source code languages are used/popular in a software project and dependend of that setting prefer/promote that languages at the dokuwiki editor buttonbar.

This requires probably an additional database field in the flyspay_projects table (if just used for dokuwiki that should be ok)

If thinking further like Filter me all software projects that may ontain CSS code on the projects overview, a m:n-table setup is thinkable. But thats maybe overengineering..
Or can we use the existing tag-feature for that and just ‘tag’ projects with tags?

2303User InterfaceFeature RequestVery LowHome screen for private flyspraysRequires testing
625.10.201626.10.2016 Task Description

I use Flyspray as a closed system with all projects set to private. I use it as a main means of communication with my clients. In such a case it would be a good idea for visitors to see a home screen (preferably a blank/splash screen with login option only) and definitely not the All tasks title or project names ( FS#2302 ) or taskid search.

2305GreekFeature RequestVery LowMonth names not translatableUnconfirmed
2126.10.201611.03.2019 Task Description

At first I thought month names were controled by jscalendar. But after restoring functionality of jscalendar ( FS#2226 ) I realized that month names are probably a native feature of Flyspray.

So month names need translation. Moreover, in Greek there should be grammatical cases used. For example October in Greek is Οκτώβριος (nominative case). But when you say “October 2” in Greek is “2 Οκτωβρίου” (genitive case). So month translation would require at least two strings for each month.

2425SlovenianFeature RequestVery LowTranslation: SlovenianConfirmed

2577User InterfaceFeature RequestVery Lowdistinguish between anonymous reporter and deleted userNew
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.

2222GreekInformationVery LowGreek translation issuesUnconfirmed
324.10.201624.10.2016 Task Description

After completing the Greek translation I have a series of issues I want to report concerning mainly (but not limited to) the Greek languange.

I was thinking of opening a separate task for each one of them (note that they are all ultra low severity/priority) and adding them as sub-tasks to this one (or maybe as dependencies - or both).

I also request a Translations > Greek sub-category. I really have a lot of issues.

2143TranslationsTODOVery Lowjscalendar: week start should be monday, ISO 8601Confirmed
201.07.201603.03.2019 Task Description

The current jscalendar shows sunday as the first day of the week by default.

Could be modified for a language by adding

// First day of the week. 0 means Sunday, 1 means Monday
Calendar._FD = 1;


See also

It should default to Monday as defined by ISO 8601.
