105.01.201905.01.2019 Task Description

Steps done to create the problem:
Access /index.php?do=admin&area=checks with a MySQL Version >= 5.5.3

Expected behavior:
Flyspray tests for character set and displays »Your mysql supports full utf-8 since 5.5.3. You are using x.x.x and flyspray tables could be upgraded.« when database schema or one table isn’t set to utf8mb4 character set.

Experienced behavior:
Flyspray always shows this note, even though character set is correct.

As far as I can tell from the source, a query gets executed to the database (and if I do that manually the result is “utf8mb4, utf8mb4_unicode_ci” for my database), but the result doesn’t get checket, the note is always shown (line 123)

2531TranslationsFeature RequestLowdetect usage of translation keywordsNew

110.01.201919.03.2019 Task Description

Some translation keywords of Flyspray are used at more than one code location.

To help translators doing the correct translations, it would help to show in what context a translation keyword is used.
Especially when a keyword is used more than once.

As we have our own translation helper integrated into Flyspray, we could show a ‘translation keyword usage counter’ there and maybe show on request in which file
a translation keyword is used.

It would also help to identify ‘abandoned’ translation keywords that are not used anymore by Flyspray source.

Also it would help to identify when a translation is used at more than one location with maybe different context.

I think we can use a regular expression and scan the whole Flyspray source for that.
(and maybe database entries if there are places that have translation keywords stored - I don’t think so, but better check that too first than forget that case)

The regular expression should match that examples case insensitive for the translation keyword report:

L('report' 
L("report"
eL('report'
eL("report"

but also ugly cases like
l(    'report'
or 
El ( "report"

case insensitive.

But not for example

The HTML accesskey attribute feature is differently accessible dependent of operating system, web browser and web browser configuration, and users keyboard layout and user language.

By taking advantage of the User-Agent HTTP header value provided by default by web browsers, Flyspray could better know of what kind of keyboard and browser the user sits in front off and show the key combinations for the accesskey feature that best fits the users environment.

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.

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.

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

2669Database QueriesBug ReportLowuser and registrations tables: Illegal mix of collation...New
50%
peterdd1.0-rc11107.11.202208.11.2022 Task Description

The ajax call to check if a username is taken fails currently on https://bugs.flyspray.org when trying to fill the user registration form.
(beside the fact the registration confirmation loop is not working as mail server not correct configured)

Query {
    SELECT count(u.user_name) AS anz_u_user, count(r.user_name) AS anz_r_user
    FROM `flyspray_users` u
    LEFT JOIN `flyspray_registrations` r ON u.user_name = r.user_name
    WHERE LOWER(u.user_name) = ? OR LOWER(r.user_name) = ?}
 failed! (Illegal mix of collations (utf8_general_ci,IMPLICIT) and (utf8_unicode_ci,IMPLICIT) for operation '='

Inconsistency probably due misconfiguration due manual upgrade + manual changes to the database.

Affected: maybe only https://bugs.flyspray.org

I fixed it on bugs.flyspray.org by running SQL commands:

ALTER TABLE flyspray_registrations CONVERT TO CHARACTER SET utf8mb4;

and

ALTER TABLE flyspray_users CONVERT TO CHARACTER SET utf8mb4;

Both now using the servers default collation, so they can be joined again by boths user_name field.

This can be seen as just a quickfix.

Why this happened at all?

I can only speculate about this as I can do some administration only since 2021.

I assume the defaults of mysql tables charsets and collation changed with mysql/mariadb versions and the upgrade scripts does not explicit handle that.

So lets say first it was utf8 and utf8_general_ci,
then utf8 and utf8_unicode_ci
and then utf8mb4 and utf8mb4_unicode_ci.

And when upgrading Flyspray and new tables where created they use the servers new default charset and collation while the older tables and varchar fields keep their old charset and collation which leads to inconsistencies.

And then there where probably manual interventions by admins (from 2003-2021?) who fixed/changed charset/collation on certain tables and fields manually by running SQL commands.

How it should be fixed

The Flyspray install and upgrade scripts and xmlschema03 files should contain information and settings for charset and collation for the table fields and upgrade scripts and should convert wrong charset and collation fields during an upgrade if they are wrong in the database.

Sadly ADOdb’s xmlschema03 lacks configuring and handling yet, so this must be done by the upgrade PHP scripts after running xmlschema03 xml files.

How it will be handled meanwhile

Extending Admin Toolbox→Checks sections to compare the current database with the intended configuration.

So admins can fix tables and field charset and collation where required.

Such inconsistency could be detected by admin checks - tab.

I would like to see that field users.user_name and registrations.user_name just be ascii (in mysql) and only accepts allowed username characters.

I allow anom users to report bugs, but when I have a question to this bug, or the reporter wants to make a additions, he has to register...

I tried hacking it in the core: In the class.user.php at the end of the get_perms method I added:
$this→perms[$proj_id]['add_comments'] = 1;

But I has nothing changed. The I removed the check if the user had the right to make a comment in the template file, now I have a comment field for everyone, but anom user get a error message saying, that they should enter a comment... I searched a lot in the core files, but I don´t find the point where the comment a written in the database... I would a great help if you could give at least a hint :)

Another thing i tried was changing the user contructor, that every user with a negative ID get the ID 2, witch is a special "anom" user. But then you could not log out, a the admin not in...

Got "wrong token" on creating a task whose form were open for a while in browser tab.

That means probably the session timed out on bugs.flyspray.org, so the anti csrf token doesn't existed anymore on the webserver.

It would'nt be a big problem if the browser backbutton works showing the ready written form again, but it was empty.

One solution would be temporarly storing it offline in the browser storages which are available with html5. But open for other simpler solutions..

2223GreekBug ReportVery LowSome strings need splitting or replacementUnconfirmed
0%
2124.10.201625.10.2016 Task Description

There is a conflict in meaning in some words. In English past tense (”he closed the task”) and past participle (”List of closed tasks”) is the same word. But in Greek they are two different words (past tense of close: έκλεισε, past participle of close: κλεισμένος/κλεισμένη/κλεισμένο/.../etc → (actually, past participle has 3 genders (male/female/neutral) x 2 grammatical numbers (singular/plural) x 4 grammatical cases (nominative/genitive/accusative/vocative)) = 24 combinations but we’ll deal with this later if needed).

So, strings that now are used both as past tense and past participle, or used both for singular and plural, must split and use a different string when past tense and a different string when past participle or singular/plural.

These strings are:

varvaluenotes
openedOpened It is used in Event log as past tense (meaning: “User X opened Y task” or “Y task was opened by X” → so in Greek must either use past tense or past participle as singular because it’s one task) and it is also used in Overview as past participle (meaning: “List of opened tasks” → so in Greek must use plural). On the other hand, the same message in task’s History uses var taskopened=”Task opened”. Maybe it would be best if var taskopened was used in Event log too instead of var opened. It would solve my problem.

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.
