1.0341927.01.200702.03.2016 Task Description

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.

An existing Jabber configuration in the admin backend prevents the scheduler from sending mails, deleting the Jabber account data let it work again. Anyway, the normal messages in case of a task's changes are sent properly with or without the Jabber configuration.

100%
Jouni Ahto1.0203.08.200919.03.2015 Task Description

I apologize if this is a duplicate... I did search pretty hard for another filing.

Text searches are case-sensitive on PostgreSQL where they aren't on MySQL (I'm guessing MySQL is the desired behavior). When checking the code, it has to do with the use of the 'LIKE' keyword: it's case-insensitive on MySQL and case-sensitive on PostgreSQL.

I fixed it for my own uses by changing it to ILIKE instead (PostgreSQL-only), but a more generic approach would be more appropriate for Flyspray Proper. The Right Way To Fix This™ probably involves a change to ADOdb to allow for an abstraction of the LIKE keyword depending on the database in use. The Mostly-Right Way To Fix This would be to use something generic across MySQL and PostgreSQL like UPPER() or something to compare the data.

 1764 Backend/CoreBug ReportLow PostgreSQL: No activity graphs displayed Closed

Jouni Ahto1.0113.08.201222.04.2015 Task Description

Instead of a activity graph, some broken images are displayed. After minimal investigation I found following error:

Query {SELECT count(date(from_unixtime(event_date))) as val FROM "flyspray_history" h left join "flyspray_tasks" t on t.task_id = h.task_id WHERE t.project_id = ? AND date(from_unixtime(event_date)) = str_to_date(?, '%m/%d/%Y')} with params {4,08/12/2012} Failed! (FEHLER: Funktion from_unixtime(integer) existiert nicht LINE 1: SELECT count(date(from_unixtime(event_date))) as val ^ HINT: Keine Funktion stimmt mit dem angegebenen Namen und den Argumenttypen überein. Sie müssen möglicherweise ausdrückliche Typumwandlungen hinzufügen.)

which points to a missing function "from_unixtime" in PostgreSQL and it is true, it's a mysql specific function. One can build this function on PostgreSQL. stephe did it: https://groups.google.com/forum/?fromgroups#!topic/flyspray/_VigAhVd-CU. If ever possible don't use these specific functions or this will break all database compatibilities with other than mysql

I searched but found nothing related, so pardon me if there is a duplicate.

When admin searches for event logs, choose "Created" or "Deleted" in "user" area, and in the result, click "Detailed information", a box will pop up. If the admin click on the box, I expect him to enter a page to edit the user's details. However, an error message ("This task does not exist") will pop up instead.

Greetings!

It is kind of trivial, but if I create a user account whose user name and real name are both short (e.g. user name == "ao", real name == "Ao"), when I stop mouse at my name, the profile box cannot be displayed completely. If I scroll to the right, that box will then disappear.

Attached are images for illustration.

Thanks!

1.0207.03.201520.03.2015 Task Description

If you save forms, it can happen that something is changes on the page. ^^

But if you render parts of the answer page before the form action is handled and database changes are made,
the answer page shows old information. Only on an additional request you see the current data.

The wrong way to solve this is making a redirect. Saw this in some other software and it was source of problems.

1.0516.03.201512.10.2015 Task Description

Due to the needed implementation of an anti csrf system into Flyspray 1.0,
this are a side effect issues we need to address:

Due the required replacement of action links to form buttons:

  • The user cannot just see anymore the target url of the action by hovering over the link. We can compensate that in the simpliest case by using the title-tag as additional info to the user. Trust not full reestabilished that way, but better than nothing and user has fear to click a form button.

Javascriptless CSS3-toggles:

  • Some clickable labels don’t show pointer icon when :hover. CSS issue, easy fix.

The loading graphic ajax_load.gif was removed with the classic theme bluey/

So every javascript call to showPreview() results in a 404 request for that ajax_load.gif.

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.

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.
