  • 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? :-)

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

2118User InterfaceFeature RequestLowShow overview of existing tags for usersAssigned
20%
peterdd1.1 devel09.04.201626.10.2019 Task Description

At several places it could be useful to let the user view available tags:

  1. When editing a task a toggle popup could show a list of selectable and existing tags.

I found several nice vanilla-js-multiselect-with-autocompletion scripts, but none yet that still works at a basic level when javascript is turned off.

My plan is now:

  • Keep the current basic input text field for input tags and show current assigned tags like exampletag1;exampletag2;exampletag3 separated by ‘;’ that is sent to the server when saving the task and server handles evaluation of that string (validation, duplicates, removed, added, creating new tags if allowed for current user)
  • A CSS only toggle that shows available tags that can be assigned (works even with js turned off), similiar to other places within Flyspray like advanced search toggle.
  • If js turned off, the user must type the tag - not as fancy, but at least works. (I thought also about using a html select with multiple=”multiple” attribute, but was not convinced due styling not possible in modern browsers without js)
  • If js is enabled, more fancier stuff is possible:
    • The input text field is hidden by display:none and instead the styled tags are shown.
    • The current added tags also get a little x to remove a tag by clicking it. The content of the hidden input text field is updated to reflect the current editing status. (click eventlistener)
    • A generated text input field for typing with autocompletion list shown of matching availbale tags. An unknown tag is added to the list if user is allowed to create tags. Clicking a item in the autocompletion list adds the tag and resets the autocompletion input text field for the next autocompletion action.
    • The tags within the toggle list with all available tags get also a click event listener, so clicking it adds them to the hidden text input.
    • Not sure yet if an added tag should be removed from the all available tags list or just make an CSS indication that a tag is still added, currently I tend to keep the list untouched, just highlight used tags of the task.
  • Optionally make the all available tags sortable by:
    • list_position (default)
    • alphabetic
    • global or project level
    • popularity (count of tasks using a tag (n + unnumbered private)), requires adding a data attribute.
    • group by detected prefix like shape:triangle shape:circle shape:rectangle could show a group of tags as: shape: triangle circle rectangle
  1. Make the list of tags searchable for the advanced search. added with FS1.0-rc10 by just using search key words also for searching list_tags table.
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).

2308User InterfaceFeature RequestLowimprove user management for adminsNew
20%
127.10.201613.02.2017 Task Description

The register spam by probably bots in 2016 is annoying.

I ticked the setting, that an admin must accept a new registration. It helps to reduce spam task, but now admin must decide if the registrations are ok or just spam bots.

Beside the need of antispam-plugins, the management of users can be improved:

  • column sorting of user list, similiar to the tasklist
  • filtering user list, similiar to the tasklist
  • pagination of user list (25,50,100,200,all?)
  • more columns like ‘last login’, ‘last activity/tasks/comments created/votes/edit’ that may help to decide what status or settings a user should have in future.
  • show time zone setting and language setting of users implemented in userlist now
  • mass accept/deny of a list of user registrations waiting for admin approval.
2317User InterfaceBug ReportMediumDate format wrongConfirmed
20%
1.1 devel122.11.201622.11.2016 Task Description

In some parts of the world (primarily the US), the date is viewed as Month/Day/Year. However, all options in the current rc4 build are listed as Day/Month/Year aside from one, which goes ShortWrittenMonth/Day#/Year#.

This is poor from a customer perspective, and can be highly confusing. I can change the date globally to a correct format in the database, but this doesn’t help much as every user can select their own date which has all incorrect formats.

2009User InterfaceFeature RequestLowEdit task flowNew
10%
2.0118.07.201507.08.2016 Task Description

Currently only a small portion of adjustements on a task is available in the “edit task” view.

To add or modify stuff in the current tab sections (comments, related tasks, notifications, effort tracking,..)
a user must go from edit task to view task page.

This not optimal for work flow.

To solve this quite much changes are needed. Because currently they are different http requests each with its own checks and request anwsers.

22.11.200818.04.2009 Task Description

In version 0.9.9.5.1 (unfortunately I couldn't select this version in the dropdown list on the left), reminders can only be created and edited by Admins and Project Managers. I recommend to give Assignees the permission to create reminders for themselves. To minimize any programming impact, his may be done as part of the "edit own tasks" permission.

This topic has been reported by Engie as part of Bug #713 for version 0.9.8 as well: "Also it would be useful if a user could create reminder for himself." Although that bug is already closed ("fixed in devel"), this part is not yet solved in the current version.

2.0125.02.201017.01.2013 Task Description

For a combination of archiving / "notify bot" reasons I have found it useful to have a single global notification address where all bug reports / updates / comments go.

In the past I've used this to automatically dump updates into a IRC / Jabber chat room as well as provide a way for a project manager (me) to keep an idea of the amount of activity. Please let me know if you have questions about this.

128.12.201106.10.2015 Task Description

Hi there,

I was looking for some issue management tool for the company I work for and Flyspray turned out to be almost perfect solution. I installed it easily and it works GREAT!
As I said, this turned out to be almost perfect solution, and this is because it lacks some features that my company needs.

  • Due Date with Hour/Minute part - to choose till what time during that day should task be done (ie. 27-12-2012, 17:27)

Away with needs of my company, I believe that these features will make Flyspray very interesting and more suitable for many small/medium companies.

Best regards,

Milan Vlajnic

1720Backend/CoreFeature RequestLowBetter Access Control Lists and User / Group ManagementPlanned

1.1 devel301.05.201220.03.2015 Task Description

We need to have a better way to do user rights, group rights and manage users.

Here is what I am thinking, global administration can go to a ACL tab. Click on it and you have a simple way to add a new user / group. Two tabs on top are User Rights and Group Rights. These are global so each project will inherit the global setting for user / group.

Clicking on User Rights tab will lists users with a table to grant user rights. Specific to that user, it would be the same for group rights tab.

You can also search by a user name. This will make things faster to find that specific user.
