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.

2429Backend/CoreInformationLowMy tasks URLUnconfirmed

109.03.201720.03.2017 Task Description

Hey peterdd,

I was wondering: is there a standard URL for “My tasks”? I have an internal website and I would like to create a menu with a few submenus (Add task and My tasks) that link to FlySpray. However if I place the URL for My Tasks (being logged in with my user account), and copy this link to the menu, all others that click the submenu My Tasks, are seeing the tasks that where opened by me or where I am assigned, not that user that is connected on Flyspray with his account on his PC.

So that’s why I am asking for a generic URL of My Tasks, so I can place it on this middle-site?

Thanks

116.02.201803.03.2018 Task Description

It would be great if the Admin Toolbox had an attachments section with an on/off switch, a max size setting, and it would print out all the reasons why it can’t set it to your desired value.

This would help in situations like  FS#2458 , it would be more clear if there is a setting to turn on/off attachments instead of turning them on and off by setting the rights if the attachments folder.

This way if the attachments setting is On, the GUI could also print an error “Attachments folder must be writable” when it detects that the writable attribute does not match the desired setting.

110.08.201810.08.2018 Task Description

the old php mysql extension is long ago reached its demise, why bother supporting it?

I also see in the database connector that your supporting MySQL/PDO - why not settle on that? If the queries aren’t MySQL specific, it becomes easier to support other DB’s, etc.

Save public files inside public or public_html directories, and non-public files outside of those directories;

config file

vendor directory

setup logic

etc

This goes onto another question/point - why are you deleting files from the vendor directory? It happens during composer install, and again after installation? Those files will just get put back if the user ever runs composer install again...

Can this be protected/private by default?

2498TranslationsInformationLowApply variable in language keys to push the local site ...Unconfirmed
0%
118.09.201802.11.2018 Task Description

Hi, in order for us to push our name (rather than flyspray) on emails, notifications, and GUI we had to edit the language file to replace the text “flyspray” with our install site name. That way notifications come from our company name rather than flyspray.

It would be nice if you could take the site name variable and add it to the language files in all keys that face the public user and all notifications. This would not only prevent editing of the lang file but also make setup alot faster.

Thanks so much..

2499User InterfaceBug ReportHighChange recaptcha from using file_get_contents to CurlUnconfirmed
0%
118.09.201802.11.2018 Task Description

The issue with many servers now and the reason that recaptcha does not work is because it requires servers to enable allow_url_fopen which is a huge security risk. That is why you get the warning message when you try to run recaptcha that file_get_contents failed to connect.

So the solution is to use Curl to do that job.

Here is the fixed file, excuse my mess i had not cleaned up my code yet... but recaptcha now works.

this file goes in the includes dir... you can clean up the file if you like again sorry about that.

2527Backend/CoreBug ReportLowDatabase Check »Your mysql supports full utf-8 since 5....Unconfirmed
0%
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
0%
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

In the page http://www.flyspray.org/manual/group_permissions/ , it is written

Shown is an image of the permissions page for the Flyspray project’s Contributors group

but there is no image in there.

I can think of two ways of dealing with that I guess:

  1. add an image
  2. remove the sentence

What do you think?

On the Flyspray homepage, no informations about https://github.com/flyspray/flyspray

A lot of people think that the project is dead.

In the same time, can you change the https://github.com/Flyspray to https://github.com/flyspray ?

No lost, you can try it already works but it is not the default.

https://github.com/organizations/Flyspray/settings/profile → “Rename organization” and replace Flyspray → flyspray.

2608EmailBug ReportMediumNotification email sent although not requestedUnconfirmed

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.

1.1 devel11.03.201503.11.2015 Task Description
  • On the myprofile page have a section to show all my votes I put on tasks. done!
  • Add the possibility to remove own votes from tasks. done!
  • Implement a limitation of the amount of votes a user can put on tasks for a project. Can be enabled/disabled and amount configured. Done!
  • project based vote limitation
  • When a task is finished/closed, remove the user votes from the task and make that vote again available to the user. Maybe safe the existing historic voting count in an extra field of the task as the votes would drop to 0 on closing the task. removed.

We keep the votes, because a task can be reopened everytime and then the old voters and votes should be visible again. In this case the amount of votes on active task could be a bit greater than allowed, but thats no real problem.
The calculation of done votes and available votes based only on open task and project voting limit.

For example on uservoice.com you have 10 voting points. So you as user has to decide where your priorities are to put your votes.

So all users have more or less the same power to vote for tasks.
