A list what could/should be done for 1.0

  • language for email/jabber notification currently depends on sender(user who changes something), not the recipients preferences - needs loading translation everytime to the recipients prefered language changes in the sending loop. done.
  • Provide functionality similar to bugzilla 3.0 “whining” (Custom scheduled notifications) reminder (schedule.php) is working again . Setup a cronjob for that.
  • get rid of modify.inc.php (make do-modes pluggable)
  • database transactions
  • new templating engine (eval free)
  • user area (summed up notifications, own notes)
  • remove the usage of $_REQUEST and the Req class (only reduce)
  • add two checkboxes SSL and TLS to the SMTP configuration section in order to permit usage on servers that requires them (f.e gmail)
  • permit multiple flyspray installations with a single codebase.
  • Make threaded mail really work.
  • Localize the Installer/Upgrader
  • Upgrade to SwiftMailer v3 (when released for PHP4)
  • simplify task changes ( FS#1203 )? quick-edit is enough
  • link to dokuwiki syntax
  • replace FS prefix
  • lock password capability?
  • auto-close tasks...
  • restrict assignees (group permission → “show for assignees”, default 1)
  • last-edited-by column, others,  FS#1330  (redundancy table?)
  • for upgrading, to not make all fields project level?
  • remove all usage of split() and ereg_* functions, this include sending patches to external libraries.
  • Social networking authentification (Google, OpenID, Oauth, Facebook, Yahoo)

Things that will not be done in 1.0:

  • conversion scripts for most popular BTS - All of Flyspray data is stored in database. It should not be too hard to create a conversion script, at least from the Flyspray side. Do you need a conversion script to or from Flyspray? Tell us.
  • allow personal ordering of fields (FS 1.1 or later), see FS#2013
  • Add an option for SSL login - If you want a secure Flyspray, configure your webserver to only talk TLS/SSL, not unencrypted HTTP. Flyspray can help by hardening its source for TLS/SSL only sending, ask peterdd if it’s a requirement for you.

Things planned for 1.1:

  • Find no longer used functions in the code and remove them

Not planned yet:

  • Add support for both sqlite and mssql. But you can try your own experiments, we use adodb that supports a wide range of databases.

Change the spaces to ‘,’ Save

Expected behaviour:
Saves the tag with comma (even ; is the correct seperator).
It looks to me, that sanitisation of user input is missing here.

Emails should be sent in both formats within one Email, not either text or HTML.

It is the choice of the users email program if he sees the messages as html or plain text.

So in best case we can drop this option when implemented and make Flyspray a bit more easier to administer?

Well, as everybody can see at the moment, someone (who? @floele ?) updated the server hosting bugs.flyspray.org to PHP7.2.x and now some ‘deprecated’-warnings are shown.
Edit: For example not working Flyspray 1.0-rc6 and older with the brand new PHP7.2:

  • shows deprecated info on top
  • shows deprecated info at every comment
  • tells task in work by other user when you want to save a task.
  • Uploaded files aren’t downloaded correct (open a downloaded image with a hexeditor for example to see)
  • probably also scheduler (cronjob/schedule.php and sending emails effected)

1.0907.03.201511.11.2015 Task Description

This is taken from FS#1753:

The second reason being there is no way that I know of to automatically set a project usergroup to new members. I only have 1 project, but it seems the Global groups aren’t working (can still see tasks if “View Tasks” is unchecked) and I don’t know how to fix that.

And what I have to say - it is hard to tell if you are on the Flyspray admin settings area or on the admin settings of a project.

Cheapest way is adding some CSS to distinguish this for the user.

But there is in fact more to do to make it user friendly.

  • TODO: list configurations for project(task types, categories, ..) in Manage Project should also show the system wide list values as hint to avoid duplication.
  • TODO: project user groups overview should show system wide user group infos as info for project managers to avoid unnecessary complicated configuration settings.
  • TODO: visualize related permissions that can overrule eachother like ‘view_task’ overrules ‘view_own_tasks’ to avoid misconfigurations

peterdd1.0320.08.201527.10.2015 Task Description

I’m not sure this is a bug or this behavior is intended.

I have a user who belongs to a “basic” group but he’s a projects manager in one of the projects.

We have noticed he is not able to edit their own comments or tasks even though this feature is enabled in project managers group within this particular project.
I could only fix it by enabling these features in the global basic group, but I feel the project group setting should overwrite those from global groups.

  • 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? :-)

peterdd1.0129.10.201512.11.2015 Task Description

In the Look and Feel settings for a project, there’s a grayed out setting that says:

[[defaultorderby2]] (not implemented yet)

For a proper release this should be either implemented or removed from the UI.

It would be great to have this implemented, because without it I can’t seem to get the same good sorting I had in 0.9.9.6. In that version I had tasks sorted by severity and then newest open date first, but in 1.0-beta2 if I sort by severity I now get oldest open date first.

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.
