  • 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? :-)

2048Backend/CoreBug ReportLowerror when adding data containing national charactersUnconfirmed

09.09.201509.09.2015 Task Description

this one is somehow tricky, it doesn't happens always but sometimes when fields or filenames contain national characters (I'm in Spain) flyspray returns an error looking like this one:

Query {INSERT INTO `flyspray_attachments` ( task_id, comment_id, file_name, file_type, file_size, orig_name, added_by, date_added) VALUES (?, ?, ?, ?, ?, ?, ?, ?)} with params {189,711,189_9c5d837bb10b7e0989a3c8be8d,application/pdf; charset=binary,736986,Guia de aplicación medidas difusicón y publicidad.pdf,4,1441827828} Failed!

Currently, if there are no public project, the anonymous users gets a blank page not very useful. It will be a good idea to have a global configuration parameter to display some customizable-page or maybe the login form instead.

there are several places where the full names are display instead of usernames and the user can't know who is which "Peter" until he visits the users profile page.

2057Backend/CoreBug ReportLowDo not resubmit forms on browser reload button or F5New
0%
122.09.201523.09.2015 Task Description

On some forms, when the user presses the reload button of this browser, the POST submit can be resubmitted.

Browsers can warn about this (Chromium, Firefox, Konqueror tested and they show a warning dialog) before executing the second POST.
But people on Flyspray mailing list wrote they experienced double comments.

Simple solution is just HTTP GET redirects after a successful POST. (HTTP 303 or HTTP 302)
But maybe there is a better method than a second roundtrip always needed?

Success, Error, or Warn-messages to the user are stored in the $_SESSION variable for displaying on the second GET request.
But I think that this is a bit ... mmh... not perfect.

For example, I would like to have in the direct response at which position in a form an input error is, not just the message bar in the top center as it is currently that just dissappear after a few seconds.

Also take care the browser back button still works as expected for the user.

2058Backend/CoreBug ReportLowClosing of github.com 'Issues' featureNew
0%
24.09.201524.09.2015 Task Description

As discussed with the team some time ago, a consolidation of places where issues are discussed is wanted.

One of the results was, that we do not want people post issues to github.com Issues and instead use our own bugs.flyspray.org
and to prefer "to eat our own dogfood" and a have central place to handle tasks.

As a result we tried to reduce the open issueas on github.com. I was in the process of moving 2 of still 7 open issues there to bugs.flyspray.org when suddenly the Issues on github.com were closed. :-( Now the last 5 issues there are lost at the moment for me and the audience, which where mostly informations to interested users, not bugs.

I think just closing it without an easy accessible alternative is not the best solution.

At least we should wait until the oauth2 authentication for github users should be implemented and setup on bugs.flyspray.org , so people browsing github.com, finding Flyspray project just can
"Login with github"-feature on bugs.flyspray.org.

The blocker to do this: Currently there is missing an option to "connect" an oauth "Login with github"- Login with an existend flyspray userlogin.

So that one userid in flyspray can:

  • login with username and password
  • login with one or more of his social accounts (github, facebook, microsoft, g+) if they are enabled (would it restrict to github.com accounts for bugs.flyspray.org)
2059Backend/CoreFeature RequestLowusage of github automated/webhook notificationsNew
0%
24.09.201524.09.2015 Task Description

We have no API yet for Flyspray.

But someone could write a simple php-file that can be called by a github.com auto notification, whenever:

  • a commit on github.com for Flyspray/flyspray is made

Github.com provides the configuration of such notification for a possible target like

https://bugs.flyspray.org/api/github.php

or

https://bugs.flyspray.org/api/github.php?project=1

in the settings of a project.

What the file needs:

  • import some of the existing Flyspray classes from includes/
  • config or load the secrets that are provided by github.com in the setup for the automatic notification
  • check that secrets and more for authentication and authorization of requests coming from github.com
  • parse the messages for Flyspray identifiers like ' FS#1234 ' or 'fix  FS#1234 ' or 'related to  FS#1234 '
  • take actions on the results of that message parsing like making adding comment or modifying a task status

129.09.201521.01.2019 Task Description

Bugs

  • Small javascript issue: When checkbox of one users row clicked, it doesn’t select the checkbox because the row click event handler doubles the click (check and uncheck, tested with firefox41). Clicking in the row (not on the name) selects the checkbox. fixed
  • browser back button after delete of a user not working as expected. (fix it by redirect 303 , see modify.inc.php how it done for other form submits)

Missing features

  • no sorting possible of the table (like tasklist)
  • no paging (like on tasklist) OK, probably not needed: ~2000 user registrations on bugs.flyspray.org and no problem rendering the table in browser.
  • no filtering of user list possible
  • no helpful information for admins like registration date and last time of login of users (last login time requires a new field in flyspray_users) implemented in Flyspray 1.0-rc7
  • no summary about users like how many exists or how many are currently online (requires storing sessions in a db session (e.g. flyspray_session) table instead php default session directory) on the install. Or a statistic graph of activity or peaks of new registrations over time.
  • maybe show user profile image too in the list.
  • choosable user field columns - partially implemented since 1.0-rc7 by selecting groups of user fields and calculated user fields: user stats, user settings

My version of PHP still shows deprecation warnings with flyspray.

Deprecated: mysql_connect(): The mysql extension is deprecated and will be removed in the future: use mysqli or PDO instead in /var/www/flyspray.itiab.co.nz/htdocs/adodb/drivers/adodb-mysql.inc.php on line 353

Have all mysql.connect instances been removed? The connect will be removed from PHP soon and will cause problems.

2081User InterfaceBug ReportLowUI for adding comment while editing task doesn't use HT...Confirmed
0%
429.10.201506.11.2015 Task Description

While editing an existing task, there’s a “+” button you can click to add a comment as part of the edit. Unfortunately this is just a plaintext box instead of the HTML editor used everywhere else, so it’s impossible to get proper line/paragraph breaks if a comment is entered with this UI.

This problem makes it necessary to edit a task and add a comment as two separate steps, whereas in 0.9.9.6 it was possible to do them together in one step.

Note that this is the case with syntax_plugin=”none”. I don’t know if it’s also a problem when using other values for that setting.

2085Text RenderingInformationMediumEnabling Color Coding options in CKEDITORUnconfirmed
0%
130.10.201530.10.2015 Task Description

Hi

So I figured out that there are no color coding options (to set text color and background color) for text in the CKEDITOR. I did some changes to CKEDITOR to add those, however, once I submit the text, it does not retain the changes.

Is there a particular reason why these are not enabled in the first place?

I am thinking it would be good add these, so that we can make the important text pop-out to the users.

1.0207.11.201518.11.2016 Task Description

Both is a bit illogical, but both is currently possible! ;-)

1 ←- 1

So when setting the parent task id checked for creating loops is needed:

Loop with 2 tasks: 1 ←- 2 ←- 1

Loop with 3 tasks: 1 ←- 2 ←- 3 ←- 1
Loop with n tasks: 1 ←- ... ←- n < – 1

As I think there are currently no recursive reads that could lead to an endless loop, but should be kept in mind when someone wants to programm rendering a gantt chart.
E.g. by limiting the depth of subtasks for example.
