Flyspray - The bug killer!

This is the Bug Tracking System for the Flyspray project. This is not a demo!

 937 User InterfaceTODOLow New fancy layout for 1.0 Closed
100%
1.1 devel57229.05.200619.07.2018 Task Description

For version 1.0 we need a nice new layout for Flyspray.

Some ideas so far:

  • The theme should be bright, clean, modern and colourful.
  • Comments could be displayed like messages on Google groups (complies to the mentioned requirements), see attachments
  • The menu needs to be changed. It probably has to be vertical in future, but in any case (the only point that matters) it should be possible to add more menu items without requiring a higher screen resolution (width)
  • the new theme should use unstyled input elements
  • the layout of all forms should be unified. I like the layout of phpbb for example (see attachment)

Layout bugs/problems that should be fixed:

Currently we don’t have anyone who is able to do this (I would like to, but I am not very good at it), so if anyone is skilled at making things look good (without creating an image-heavy layout like some at css Zen Garden) he can let us know.

More ideas are welcome and will be added to the description.

 1584 Backend/CoreFeature RequestLow Configuration: Header of emails Closed

1.1 devel307.07.200909.03.2015 Task Description

Could be nice to add our own Header of the emails, for example, if my project is named FOO, i will receive emails like "FOO noreply@bts.foo.com", but if I own differents websites, could be nice to know from which one Im receiving the email from, so could be nice to set our own header (or it is just the name from?) of the emails, in order to receive something like "FOO Bugs noreply@bts.foo.com"

1.1 devel116.10.201204.09.2015 Task Description

When you set 'address_rewriting' to '1' and activate the .htaccess, the arrow in front of the last visited task doesn't work.

I'm using FS 0.9.9.7.

 1835 Backend/CoreBug ReportHigh Upgrade to 1.0 requires dokuwiki syntax vs. free text/h ...Closed
100%
1.1 devel626.02.201319.09.2015 Task Description

As a result of adding CKEditor we now need to nicely handle previous installs data where dokuwiki syntax is still in situ.

To be completed in line with the upgrade process which also requires work.

Edit 2015-03-11 peterdd: Dokuwiki plugin will probably still be the default syntax plugin for FS 1.0. CKeditor with free HTML input adds too many security issues which weren’t not enough considered before. So we think Dokuwiki as the default is the better option for the release of 1.0.

Older installs of Flyspray use dokuwiki format.
Peoples who just used the later dev versions (after 0.9.9.7) of Flyspray used ckeditor/html as text format.

So the Flyspray userbase consists of 2 different content formats. We plan to provide automatic conversion options when doing upgrades of existing installations.

 1942 User InterfaceFeature RequestLow Able To add a comment while editing a task Closed

1.1 devel13.11.201424.11.2015 Task Description

There was a “nice to have feature” in the bluey them that allowed you to edit a task and add a comment at the same time that showed the changes, Can this be implememented into cleanFS if possible

comment field after editing:

 1979 User InterfaceTODOHigh Update bugs.flyspray.org Closed
100%
1.1 devel1218.03.201511.07.2016 Task Description

This site itself should be updated immediately to the current alpha version. We should eat our own dogfood.

  • modification in 0.9.9.7 on bugs.flyspray.org with password_hash() wasn’t ported to 1.0dev version, so some users of bugs.flyspray.org aren’t able to login now??? need to reset her password..? You just need to change passwdcrypt param from ‘md5’ (was default until FS1.0-rc1) to ‘crypt’.
 2011 Backend/CoreFeature RequestLow last modified table sorting Closed
100%
1.1 devel18.07.201520.07.2018 Task Description

If you sort the task result list by last modified date, it ignores the tasks, that are new created, but not changed.

I think better is to sort by create date too when sorting by modifed date.

  • Either we do it by a modified sql sorting rule using both date fields.
  • Or we just save the the creation date also in the modified field on the creation, so this field is never empty or null. (this would be the easiest)

In the 2nd solution the upgrade sql script should write the task creation datetime to the modifed datetime field
Something like

UPDATE tasks SET modified=created WHERE modified='' or modified IS NULL
 2056 Backend/CoreFeature RequestLow Do not do pagination on csv export  Closed
100%
1.1 devel17.09.201505.10.2015 Task Description

The result of pressing the task list csv export button should not do pagination (limit on the database query)

The wanted download of the csv is in most cases a complete list of the task list search. So users can it simple import into OpenOffice Calc, LibreOffice Calc, MS Excel or for importing it somewhere else like another database.

Implementation of this task should be quite easy by just ignoring the limit and offset, because the same query is used for task list viewing and csv export.

1836Backend/CoreFeature RequestLowNeed permission option to view only own tasksPlanned
80%
1.1 devel727.02.201322.04.2015 Task Description

In global permissions there is 'View tasks'. This makes it so a user can view all tasks. Need a way instead that they can view only their own tasks, for example a permission called 'View own tasks'.

If 'View own tasks' is checked for a user, in the project list we should only show projects which contain tickets that that user is a part of. Within a given project we should then only show tickets that the user is a part of if they have that permission set.

So for example if 'View tasks' is set, show user all tasks. 'View tasks' is not set, but 'View own tasks' is set then show them only their own tasks and projects.

1966User InterfaceFeature RequestLowMy votes on myprofileNew
80%
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.

1973Backend/CoreTODOLowurl rewritePlanned

1.1 devel214.03.201511.02.2016 Task Description

Well, it needs a cleanup, per example:

fixed now http://127.0.0.1/flyspray/task/3?project=1

That should be something like:

The actual one is actually half a rewrite and half a GET version

1982Backend/CoreBug ReportLowdouble entries in assignees listNew
80%
1.1 devel320.03.201511.02.2016 Task Description

maybe yet fixed in 1.0 dev, but here bugs.flyspray.org my account is shown twice for selection if u edit a task.

Internally in the form also with the same id, so probably not a big problem.

I registered some years ago, maybe this year jordan(?) added me again or with another email adress? Maybe I have two addresses under on account here, which is a feature, not a bug.

But for the assignee list it should “group by user_id”.

1919Backend/CoreBug ReportLowAJAX Quick-Edit on category and task pagesPlanned

1.1 devel3109.07.201407.12.2015 Task Description

Ability to click field to edit ticket

TODO: return handler if request ok or fail.

TODO: also clicks on label should trigger show form.

Maybe the whole “click to active for editing this field” to one click too much.
So if the user has the rights to edit the value the form input or action button should be shown when viewing a task.
All other people just see the value if they have the right to view the value.

1969User InterfaceFeature RequestLowsearch form with Advanced search toggle layoutNew

1.1 devel312.03.201519.09.2015 Task Description

I think the button advanced search button should not be placed right beside seach input field as full button.

Maybe a small down arrow under the simple search form with a horizontal line and a title tag as tooltip.

Any comments?

1736User InterfaceFeature RequestLowBe able to add colors for Task StatusesPlanned

1.1 devel516.05.201215.10.2015 Task Description

I often used color identifiers for my Task Statuses in my old bug tracking solution, and it helped me prioritize things, like confirming unconfirmed bugs. The only thing that currently has colors, is the severity- I’d like a possibility to have (customizable) colors for Task Statuses too.

Edit by peterdd: Topic was discussed earlier on https://github.com/Flyspray/flyspray/issues/130 (edit:It seems Jordan turned “issues” on github.com off in favor of bugs.flyspray.org)

The feature still exists but it is turned off until finished in a secure way. The possibility of sub and parent tasks requires many checks.

2018User InterfaceBug ReportLowreview keyboard navigationResearching
50%
1.1 devel526.07.201529.07.2019 Task Description

Keyboard navigation is not documented

At least there is no hint in the interface which keyboard shortcuts are available for fast navigation between task list and task details view.

Due to the dropping of the cookie storage for remembering last search or last selected task in favor of not interfering when multiple flyspray browser tabs are open (with e.g. different projects) ,
the caret list browsing with ‘j’,’k’,’o’ and details view isn’t useful at moment.

  1. keyboard based navigation must be documented somewhere, e.g. by providing hints (clickable icon for info or :hover ) at appropriate positions.
  2. navigation flow and technical realisation reviewed for keyboard power users

Edit: Currently handled by js event handler:

  • j move cursor down in task list
  • k move cursor up in task list
  • o open current selected task in task list
  • n next task on task details page
  • p previous task on task details page
grep -r 'accesskey' *

Current accesskeys (browserspecific + key):

  • a double usage for new task and newmultitask. Must hit [Enter] to open one of them; on newmultitask page it adds a new row.
  • e edit task on task details page
  • f copy firstline to the other rows on new multitask page
  • l show loginbox or logs you off
  • m toggle mysearchesbox
  • r reset? when dokuwiki plugin is used
  • s submit when dokuwiki plugin is used
  • w watch/unwatch task on task details page
  • n next task
  • p previous task
  • y close task

One of my task has 8.9166666666667 days left. This is very very very very accurate !

A rounding would look better !

Running Alpha2 now, Cannot use this on 'reported version' here on this site

Edit: Rounding is adhoc fixed on 2015-06-21 in dev in template file, but code should IMHO be centralized, not template, see comments

2098User InterfaceBug ReportMediumAttached image cannot be downloadedConfirmed
50%
1.1 devel530.01.201610.01.2017 Task Description

Steps:

- Attach an image to a task.
- It shows as a link in your task (cf. screenshot “Screenshot from 2016-01-29 18-34-31.png”).
- Click on the link.

Result: it opens a “popup” with the image displayed in it. If the image is big, the popup is just so huge the image is not visible without boring horizontal and vertical scrolling (see “Screenshot from 2016-01-30 15-07-26.png” which shows what I see when I click the image link on my task).
I can’t even right click to download from the menu since I see no “Save Image As” item. (see Screenshot-no-save-image-in-menu.png).

My workaround was that if I drag and drop the attachment link in the address bar, I finally get the expected image, which I can finally save as! This workaround was hard to find, and I expect most people will just get frustrated of being able to view an image attachment, yet not save it locally.

I proposes the following:
- a small “download” icon next to the image link in the task for direct download (without preview).
- a “download” link/icon on the top-left of the image display popup (to download while previewing).

And as a side feature (maybe I should make a separate report?), I suggest that by default the image display popup constrains the image to the screen size, with a “see real size” link, so that you don’t get the popup with huge scrolling when opening a big image on a smaller screen.

Note: of course this issue does not appear with non displayable attachment. If I have a zip or a document, it proposes me to download it directly.

I have done a very quick bit of work to bring ldap (through active directory) authentication to flyspray for our implementation in the office. I hope it will be of use to others. There is a readme.txt inside talking through the process and the patch to apply. My plan is to expand on this and make it part of the setup process but this will take a bit longer.

1040User InterfaceFeature RequestLowClose Multiple Tasks at onceNew
30%
1.1 devel5317.08.200601.10.2015 Task Description

We don't close the tasks until the release is "made", that is we let them under "Requires Testing" with 100% complete. When the release/testing cycle is finished, somebody has to go task by task, and start closing them... it's a PITA ;)
It would be nice to have to option to select all the tasks you want to close, and that the "popup" when you enter the reason/etc, applied to all the tasks I selected...

I recall reading something about this in the past, but haven't found it; and if this is implemented, I haven't seen a way to do it in 099beta1
