531.10.201803.11.2018 Task Description

I use a personal email server with a self-signed certificate (i’m not sure if it’s possible to use my https certificate for that? i don’t even kind of understand what all I did to get this email server setup, and I don’t really want to mess with it... especially since my https certificate comes from Let’s Encrypt... so i might have to muck with the email server every 60 days ... not sure?) ..

anyway, when I try to connect to it with Flyspray, I get above the Test Email button, “Completely unexpected exception: Unable to connect with TLS encryption
This should never happend, please inform Flyspray Developers”

Most systems have a way to override and accept an invalid cert, but I’m not seeing anything obvious about doing that with Flyspray. Does a function for this already exist, or do we need a way to do that? (alternatively, I would accept help in properly configuring my email lol)

105.05.202005.05.2020 Task Description

I tried to register a user test3, and in my flyspray Installation the adminstratior disabled the notifications.
So I could only select “None” as text next to “Notifications”. After I pressed the button “Send Code!”, I received the email with the confirmation code. I clicked on the link in the email, and on the appearing website I entered the confirmation code and password and pressed the button “Register this account”.

Then I got the next e-mail message.
This message begins with:

“You have registered at Flyspray. Your details are as follows:”

This e-mail ends with the sentences:

“You are receiving this message because you have requested it from the Flyspray bugtracking system. If you did not expect this message or don’t want to receive mails in future, you can change your notification settings at the URL shown above.”

But this is not true. I have not requested this email. I as user test3 cannot change the notification settings because the notifications are disabled by the administrator.

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.

2225GreekBug ReportVery LowGreek uses slash for datesConfirmed
20%
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).

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.

  • 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? :-)

323.11.201607.12.2016 Task Description

When choosing HTML/CKEditor on the setup screen you are presented with an error stating that syntax plugin cannot be empty.

This is due to the option value being empty:

<select name="syntax_plugin">

			<option value="">HTML/CKEditor</option>
			</select>

A suggested fix is to remove the requirement to select an option (since you have to select one or the other anyway).

Quick anwser: enable swap partition on your server.

Tried upgrading a rc4-dev to rc5-dev/rc6/flyspray-master on a virtual server with 500MB RAM and php5.6.30 on the commandline (debian)

After file upgrade, I wanted also update the vendor stuff according to composer.json changes.

But surprisingly this failed:

php composer.phar update

and also after

php composer.phar selfupdate


to version Composer version 1.5.2 2017-09-11 the memory limit bug exists:

The following exception is caused by a lack of memory or swap, or not having swap configured
Check https://getcomposer.org/doc/articles/troubleshooting.md#proc-open-fork-failed-errors for details

PHP Warning:  proc_open(): fork failed - Cannot allocate memory in phar:///var/www/***/composer.phar/vendor/symfony/console/Application.php on line 979

Warning: proc_open(): fork failed - Cannot allocate memory in phar:///var/www/***/composer.phar/vendor/symfony/console/Application.php on line 979

  [ErrorException]
  proc_open(): fork failed - Cannot allocate memory

Also doing a more fresh vendor install like

rm composer.lock
rm vendor/*
(keeps the .htaccess there)
php composer.phar install

300 MB not enough for a handful of php package installations? wtf, but didn’t dig deeper..

I temporarly solved the problem by making a swap partition on this vServer like suggested at
https://getcomposer.org/doc/articles/troubleshooting.md#proc-open-fork-failed-errors

/bin/dd if=/dev/zero of=/var/swap.1 bs=1M count=1024

peterdd1.0-rc11729.04.202123.07.2021 Task Description

I administer a moderate-sized (~14K ticket) 1.0-rc9 instance running on a Fedora 32 host (php 7.4.16, mariadb 10.4.18) Following the upgrade instructions (ie transfer attachments, avatars, flyspray.conf.php) the setup/upgrade tool loads, and prompts me to upgrade.

It churns a while before refreshing the screen, claiming a successful 1.0-rc10 upgrade. However, the upgrade seems to not actually “stick”, because clicking on the “return” button I’m dropped back into the upgrader, which is once again claiming I’m running 1.0-rc9 and prompting me to perform the -rc10 upgrade.

According to Flyspray’s admin ‘checks’ tab:

* PHP 7.4.16
* MariaDB 10.4.18
* default_charset: utf8mb4
* default_collation: utf8mb4_unicode_ci
* All tables are ‘InnoDB’

There are no errors logged that I can find, but the upgrade is clearly not working. If I revert to the -rc9 php files, everything continues along as if nothing was done.

Any suggestions?

peterdd1.0-rc11729.04.202105.05.2021 Task Description

I administer a small personal (<1K ticket) 1.0-rc9 instance running on a Fedora 32 host (php 7.4.16, postgresql 12.6) Following the upgrade instructions (ie transfer attachments, avatars, flyspray.conf.php) the setup/upgrade tool loads, and prompts me to upgrade.

Unfortunately, the upgrade fails spectacularly, with a reported SQL error that belies what’s actually wrong. Here’s a snippet from the postgresql logs where the upgrade is failing:

2021-04-28 10:33:07.190 EDT [2032049] ERROR: column “attachment_id” of relation “flyspray_attachments” already exists
2021-04-28 10:33:07.190 EDT [2032049] STATEMENT: ALTER TABLE flyspray_attachments ADD COLUMN attachment_id SERIAL
2021-04-28 10:33:07.194 EDT [2032049] ERROR: current transaction is aborted, commands ignored until end of transaction block
2021-04-28 10:33:07.194 EDT [2032049] STATEMENT: ALTER TABLE flyspray_attachments ADD COLUMN task_id INTEGER
[…and everything else fails because the transaction aborted…]

It appears that the upgrade script is blindly trying to create columns that already exist in the -rc9 database, and postgresql is treating this as a failure. Because the entire upgrade happens within one transaction, this means the entire upgrade fails at the outset and won’t ever succeed.

The way past this specific problem is to make these ALTER TABLE operations conditional (eg “ALTER TABLE flyspray_attachments ADD COLUMN IF NOT EXISTS task_id INTEGER”).

2649Installer and UpgraderFeature RequestLowDocker Container: is there a way to hook into the setup...Unconfirmed

1011.08.202127.08.2021 Task Description

Hi, in my free time of the last few days I begun developping a Docker container: https://github.com/blu-base/flyspray-docker. I derived it from a nextcloud docker container… For now, I limited my focus on an apache/debian buster container. I’d be happy to contribute the project to the official placeholder when it is ready.

Anyhow, in the entrypoint script, I use some environment variables to create the flyspray.conf.php from scratch. and would now need to populate the database. I understand i have to use the respective xml scheme as the setup/index.php does.


I am not experienced with php and database applications and would like to ask you for advice how to proceed efficiently.

Since the current setup is indented to be interactive in the browser, i would need to use a cli tool or a purposely-build php script to do the same task on the command line/on container startup. But this seems to me this would be code duplication and introduce more maintenance work.

  • Is it possible to hook into only some of the functions of the setup/index.php?
  • What could be the next best approach to populate the db on first start?
  • Would it be a viable solution in trying to further modularize the setup - allowing to run parts on cli, like nextcloud’s occ tool?

peterdd712.05.202113.06.2021 Task Description

My project has 37 pending requests. Each has a set of Accept / Deny buttons next to it.

If I click on Deny, a textbox pops up for me to enter “Reason for denial” but the entire page immediately regreshes/reloads back to the task list before I have a chance to enter the reason and submit it.

I can always “Accept” the request implicitly by going to the appropriate task and closing/re-opening it, but there’s no way to “deny” something without going through this UI path.
