158 new active 2002 Dec anonymous 2002 Dec drh 4 4 Make ticket page a Wiki page with generalised meta-formatting If the Wiki supported keywords like {SQL: command }, then it would be possible to create Wiki pages that interface with the database. In this scheme, a ticket page might be written in the Wiki like (I don't know any SQL yet): Ticket {SQL: ITEM.number }: ticket dependencies and estimated duration {SQL: ITEM.description } Remarks: {SQL: ITEM.remarks } And editing the page will bring up edit blocks which feed the data back into the database, like the Create New Ticket page. The same idea could apply to reports, so the generated report page could also have an "edit" tag, which brings up the same information in edit blocks for editing the database contents. This would let me perform tasks like create a report for all entries older than 4 weeks along with their priority levels, click [Edit] and directly modify all their priority levels. This would mean that Ticket pages are just Wiki pages with meta structural information, and all Wiki pages can extract and modify SQL database information. This scheme also handles the scenario in the TODO item: * Text above ==== may only be editted by the document owner edit

I'm not sure whether it would be better to change the parser to treat java.lang.String (and perl::CPAN, and the python version, etc.) as equivalent to JavaLangString, or to just add a suffix to the class names, like StringDoc; obviously the first would allow the javadocs themselves to be parsable as a wiki. The first is unappealing because of its language-specificness and so on, but of course its more "handy" for the users. The second could be done in anyway -- all you really need is a tool that allows you to add an arbitrary file as an arbitrary wiki page, and let the user write his own script to put which file where. Test text... edit

I submitted the edit and that worked fine too. Then, back in Opera, I went to the cvstrac wiki to create this ticket and had the same problem. Clicking on "Preview Your Changes" just brought the edit page back. Finally, I went back to Mozilla where I've been able to successfully create this ticket. edit
179 new active 2003 Feb anonymous 2003 Nov drh 3 4 Making log message changes in the underlying ,v file Right now, editing the log message for a checkin from within CVSTrac does not modify the underlying CVS ,v files. To reflect any such changes in the underlying files manually is painful, since there may be multiple files in the checkin, and each could have a different revision number. It would be useful if CVSTrac could (as an option) modify the log message in the underlying ,v files (using the `cvs admin' command, or in some other way). edit

299 new active 2004 Mar anonymous 2004 Mar drh 3 2 Add enums for severity and priority The numeric constants (1-5) for severity and priority are a source of confusions for our users - other systems that we have are using different numbering systems. It will help if the "enum" table will be extended to allow the assignment of labels to those levels. There is no need to change the actual coding - the 1-5 level are more than enough. The enums should be edited by the 'setup' user, and should be used for ticket entry and editing. edit
302 new active 2004 Mar anonymous 2004 Mar drh 5 5 Allow queries to be embedded in other pages. It would be very useful to be able to add a tag to reports to include them in other pages. A combo box on the reports page could list destinations where the report could be embedded (ie: ticket page, milestone page, ticket edit page, home page, etc). By enabling select entries the user could embed the report in different pages. This could be used to provide a very simple mechanism to track dependancies. I have a report that lists all tickets that depend on a specified ticket (see attachment). By embedding this query in the ticket overview page I could follow a link to any dependent tickets. A similar report on the milestones page would allow all tickets that depend on a milestone to be listed. It might be useful to embed the "Ticket Counts" report on the main page. etc. One issue I don't know how to resolve would be passing the page identifier to the query. Each embedding location could define a key (or keys) it would make available to the query, but I don't know how it would be incorporated into the query. I assume something similar to the aux() mechanism that is currently used would work (I'm not much of an SQL guy). So a report embedded in the ticket page would have the ticket id supplied, and a report embedded in the timeline page would have the commit id supplied. edit
303 new active 2004 Mar anonymous 2004 Mar drh 4 5 Milestone and ticket hotlists. Referencing tickets by id can be cumbersome when composing a new ticket. Typically it requires a separate browser tab to search the database. Since some tickets and milestones are referenced more than others it would make sense to make their ids and summaries available when composing a new ticket. If a new column were added to the milestones and tickets tables called hot, by checkmarking the hot column on the edit page for the ticket they could be added to a 'hotlist'. Whenever a field was presented that accepted a list of dependancies (such as the depends on field and the associated check-ins field on the edit ticket page a combo box next to the field could list all 'hotlist' ticket numbers and check-ins. When the page was submitted the entries in the combo box would be merged with the input in the text field. I think this would be particularly useful when designing with milestones, since all milestone check-ins could be marked "hot" and then when reviewing tickets I could target them for a particular release by selecting the version number from the list. Combined with suggestion #302 this would make using the timeline and milestones to plan the future direction of the project much more effective. edit
304 new active 2004 Mar anonymous 2004 Mar drh 5 5 Option to pipe reports through an external filter. Currently reports can be displayed formatted into a table or as raw data. A third option to provide an external filter script (much like the external diff programs currently supported) to filter the report would offer several new configuration possibilities to the user. The raw data would be piped through the filter and the result returned. Two columns added to the reports table would control this. The first would contain the script command to run. The second would contain the mime type of the returned data. When embedding the result in a page the tag would be based on the mime type of the result. If it were of type text/html (or blank) it would be embedded directly in the page. If it were of type image/* it would be embeded by an image link, if it were type text/plain or ?? it would be referenced by an a anchor link. This would allow a lot of additional functionality. For instance a report that extracted ticket dependancies could be piped into a perl script that generated a dot file which in turn would be piped into dot to generate a dependancy graph. I think it would also have been possible to implement the rss feed this way. Other feeds for other systems could be generated in a similar way. Even the current report tables could be implemented as a perl script (this wouldn't make much sense however since it would then be impossible to install cvstrac as a single file). One security issue is that allowing users to configure an arbitrary filter to run on the server is not very safe :-). Such functionality would have to be limited to the server admin. edit

324 new active 2004 May anonymous 2004 May anonymous 3 4 viewcvs/cvsweb compatibility of urls Cvstrac provides a browse capability which is (except for tickets) a strict subset of that provided by viewcvs (most common) and cvsweb (older) products. Many cvs clients assume that viewcvs or cvsweb is available and send GET-style urls to the appropriate web browser. To lessen the need to install viewcvs/cvsweb, an even larger subset of their REST architecture could be implemented. Cvstrac already does much of what cvsweb_etc does: *: directory browsing - cvstrac uses /dir?d=/path . To emulate cvsweb_etc we could use /viewcvs/path *: file download- cvstrac uses /rlog?f=/path.... cvsweb_etc emulation could be /viewcvs/path also. *: file download and versions - cvstrac uses /getfile... cvsweb_etc have either "checkout"/path?rev=.. or ~checkout~/path?rev=.. *: diff-cvstrac uses /filediff?.. cvsweb does /path.diff?r1=..., viewcvs does /path?r1=... Implementation could be simple redirects from a new function hanging off /viewcvs. /path maps to g.zExtra (as in getfile); deciding which to redirect would be based on an examination of /path and a few looks at parameters P(r1), etc. I will look into this. --Derek edit

Even nicer would be some sort of aggregation to show group calendars.

Thanks a lot for it! Here's my (minor) quibble: I have a few report types I often use and I find myself having to go to the reports page and then click the report I like there. This always feels like a little detour... ;-) If each report had a check-box 'show in favourites', those reports (with the box checked) could be displayed in an area just below the blue page header box (or in an extra line inside the box). That would allow quick access to these reports. Saves one page-load every time (the load of the 'reports' page). edit

I like the software, and I like the idea of writing native CGI applications. So, I started digging in the cvstrac sources to get inspiration. I understand individual lines, but I fail to understand the big picture. What is the guiding principle behind the subdivision in separate files. Usually, you find simple guiding principles, such as: one source file corresponds to one web page (typical in php, asp,, ...) or corresponds to one abstract data type (such as one table and its related methods, or one memory struct and its related methods, ...), or is otherwise organised around another particular guiding principle, which tremendously facilitates locating particular logic. It turns a source tree into an addressable grid, where you can almost calculate where some logic must be located, and where you can make changes, if needed. What is the guiding principle underlying cvstrac? edit

448 new active 2005 Aug anonymous 2005 Aug cpb 1 1 import of svnserve users Attached diff enables _svntrac_ to import users from _svnserve_ users file. This is not equivalent to reading of CVSROOT/passwd since some installations of _Subversion_ don't use _svnserve_ and hence don't have relevant users file. This is not the best solution, but ATM I have no plans to add support for importing users from _{quote: mod_dav_svn}_ . _svntrac_ supports only import of users, and unlike _cvstrac_ , it can't update _svnserve_ users file based on the contents of _svntrac_ db. This limitation is imposed by the fact that passwords are stored encrypted in _svntrac_ db, while they are stored as plain text in _svnserve_ users file. Only way, AFAICT, to support it would be to store plain text passwords in db, but I guess this goes against _cvstrac_ design goals?{linebreak} Though it would be nice to have this "user export" feature since AFAIK there is no way to manage _svnserve_ users other then to edit users file directly. edit

Nothing as sophisticated as message threading, but maybe just filling in with the original remarks text. Something to help out in building context...

479 new active 2005 Sep anonymous 2005 Sep drh 4 4 Source code files should have remarks/attachments Source code should allow for remarks and attachments to be associated with a particular file. While this sort of thing could be put into the code itself, it generally is not, since it may bother the writer. And even if it were, only programmers would be able to do so. In general, there are 5 types of things in cvstrac: tickets, remarks, attachments, source code files, and wiki pages. Tickets seem to be first-class objects (#123 anywhere refers to a ticket), and Wiki pages seem to be becoming that as well. Remarks and atachments are associated only with a particular ticket or wiki page. But source code seems completely unrelated to these. Does the viewer highlight Ticket references or WikiNames in the code? It probably should not because it may make a mistake. At the same time, associating external documentation with a source file seems valuable. (One could conceive of this becoming a full-featured Literate Programming methodology). I would think that the implementation of this would be to have options on the rlog view such as: the number of attachments, number of remarks, number of tickets against a particular file, a link to the annotate/blame view (Ticket #183), edit

488 new active 2005 Sep anonymous 2005 Sep cpb 4 4 Enhancing derivedfrom (and providing backward compatibility) Currently, we used derivedfrom to record external references as to where where a ticket was derived from (e.g. change request - CRxxx etc) as well as references to other tickets (1.1.4 didn't really state otherwise) . This functionality has now changed in 1.2 . Additionally, derivedfrom can currently only reference one other ticket. I am requesting comments on the suitability of the following changes for inclusion in CVStrac (I'll do the work - however, I don't want to have to maintain my own version and will just use an 'extra' field if the following is not acceptable). *: Add additional xref table for derivedfrom tickets references. *: Preserve derivedfrom field as entered in webform for further display. *: Scan derived from field for any number or #number which hasn't been prefixed or sufixed with letters. Store these references in the new xref table. *: Use xref table to look up derived tickets for use in the ticket view edit

503 doc active 2005 Nov anonymous 2005 Nov drh 3 3 A Better "FormattingWikiPages" + 2 wiki bugs I have identified two outright bugs in cvstrac's wiki (probably already documented somewhere else; if not, someone on the cvstrac team should probably ticketize them and assign them to the right people): 1: If the entire link: statement will not fit on one line inside the wiki text editing box, the link command is ignored. 2: * followed by _ then some text then _ followed by * (and vice-versa) to make text both bold and italic don't work, despite everything else being nestable (e.g. *'s around a "quote:" block); the more interior of the two markups is simply interpreted as part of the "word" the exterior markup is affecting. A third issue (a misfeature) is that use of html and /html to insert arbitrary HTML code introduces a bogus, worse-than-useless linebreak, which makes the html wikicommand only usuable on large blocks of stuff, instead of inline in the middle of a sentence of whatever. That said, I was in the process of modifying my local copy of FormattingWikiPages to deal with problem no. 1 above, and just decided to overhaul the entire thing, as a way of giving back. There were several details in the editing hints at the bottom of the page when editing any wiki page, that were not in the FormattingWikiPages documents, at least one typo, inconsistent use of bold to highlight wiki markup commands, unclear phrasing in several places, and a number of other issues. So, here is my take on it, use any of it that you like. I did implement big "WARNING:" bits about bugs and other problems, that of course should come out of this version of the wikitext if you want to use it, and the issues get resolved by then. ;-) PS: If posting the wikitext into this ticket mangles it in some way, drop me a line and I'll e-mail you a copy. The preview I just did seems to indicate that cvstrack will render all the wiki commands even inside a ticket, so you can't see the wikisource. I should probably e-mail it. ***************************************************************************************** **Paragraphs** Use *one or more blank lines* to separate paragraphs. You can arbitrarily wrap text within a paragraph (or not bother to wrap it at all), _except_ that {quote:{link:}} commands cannot line wrap; see below for more details. **Indentation of Code** If the first line of a paragraph begins with a *tab* or with *two or more spaces*, then that whole paragraph is shown verbatim (that is, within <pre>...</pre> markup in HTML, including the constant-width font with all spacing and line breaks preserved) The formatting rules below _do not apply_ to verbatim paragraphs (other than {quote:<html>}, as explained next). See "Lists", below, for how to indent without <pre> behavior. **HTML** You can insert arbitrary HTML into a wiki page, by surrounding the code to be inserted with *{quote:"<html>"}* and *{quote:"</html>"}*. <html><b><i>Warning:</i></b></html> Because text between {quote:"<html>" and "</html>"} is interpreted as HTML, _even inside verbatim paragraphs_, if you need to use the string "{quote:<}html>" in sample code, you must wiki it as "{quote:{quote:<html>}}", or your sample code will be parsed and rendered instead of displayed as written. This does not affect </html>, nor other HTML or XML markup, just "{quote:<html>}". **Boldface and Italics** Text contained between asterisks is rendered *bold.* If you use two or three asterisks in a row, instead of just one, the bold text is also shown at a larger point size. Text between underscores is rendered as an _italics._ All font style markers must start at the beginning of a word (a contiguous text string) and must finish at the end of a word within the same paragraph. You cannot use both at once. However, you can acheive the desired effect like so:{linebreak} {quote:<html><b><i>Italicized bold text</i></b></html>}{linebreak} but at the cost of a linebreak inserted before the text marked up this way. **Lists** If a line begins with the characters "*{quote:*:}*" followed by a space or tab, then that line becomes an item in a bullet list. Similarly, if the line begins with "*N:*" (where N is any number including a multi-digit number, or 0) then the line becomes an item in an enumeration list. Enumeration items are automatically renumbered so the values of N do not need to be in ascending order. Lines that begin with "*{quote:_:}*" are indented like a bullet list but do not display the bullet. You can use this to indent without getting monospaced fonts and other behaviors of <pre>. Make nested lists by adding colons. For example, to make a second level bullet, begin the line with "*{quote:*::}*". **Hyperlinks** Links to other pages are created automatically whenever the *name of another wiki page* is mentioned in the text. (See WikiPageNames.) If you want to put a CamelCase word in your text but you do not want it to become a hyperlink, enclose the name in "{quote: {quote: ...}}". This auto-linking does not happen inside indented verbatim paragraphs. Full *URLs* in the text, such as links to external sites, also automatically become links, but see below for special handling of image links. Such auto-links are created for any URL beginning with "http:", "https:", "ftp:", or "mailto:", without having to use the {quote:{link:}} functionality documented below. *Note:* If the URL ends with ".jpg", ".jpeg", ".gif", or ".png" then the image that the URL points to is displayed inline on the wiki page. You can also create an inline image using markup like this: "{quote: {image: URL}}". Using the {quote: {image:...}} markup allows the image URL to be relative. This allows an image stored in an attachment to be displayed inline. Text of the form "*#NNN*" where the "NNN" is a valid ticket number becomes a hyperlink to the ticket. Text of the form "*[NNN]*" where "NNN" is a valid check-in or milestone number becomes a hyperlink to that check-in or milestone. These hyperlinks only work if the user has permission to read tickets, check-ins, and/or milestones. To create a hyperlink on arbitrary text, use "*{quote: {link: ...}}*" markup. Any text of the form: "{quote: {link: URL PHRASE}}" displays PHRASE as hyperlink to URL. Example:{linebreak} {quote: {link: Google}} = {link: Google}{linebreak} The URL can be an absolute URL beginning with a prefix like "http:", or it can be a relative URL referring to another page within the same CVSTrac server. For example, to create a link to a ticket report, one might write: "{quote: {link: rptview?rn=1 Active Tickets}}". <html><b><i>Warning:</i></b></html> The {quote:{link:}} mechanism cannot handle long links. If the entire {quote:{link:}} command will not fit onto one line in the wiki editing text box, the link will get mangled. If this happens, use to create a shorter, redirect URL. **Horizontal Lines** A horizontal line (the <hr> markup of HTML) is generated whenever four or more "-" or "=" characters appear on a line by themselves:{linebreak} *{quote: ----}* **Other Markup Rules** The special markup "*{quote: {linebreak}}*" will be rendered as a line break or hard return. The content of "*{quote: {quote: ...}}*" markup is shown verbatim, including wiki commands, e.g.:{linebreak} {quote: {quote: {quote: ...}}} ---- edit

581 new active 2006 Mar cpb 2006 Mar cpb 5 3 better control over report field formatting One thing that's been holding me back from submitting #226 is the insufficient control over report formatting. For example, I can't create a "recently editted wiki pages" where each page name is a link to the wiki page. Ditto for checkins. Unless I go with the underscore column name, which really makes a mess of layout. Only tickets have the ability to be links, but they're a bit weak since, well, they bring in the _edit_ link and you don't get any context info (link titles, etc). So we need a way to provide better formatting info for reports without breaking existing stuff. edit

Of course, line numbers are easy while function references are language specific. But line numbers break with revision changes. Still, worth thinking about. edit

604 new active 2006 Apr cpb 2006 Apr cpb 4 4 embedded scripting language support Enhancements like #183 and #405 are dependent on external programs. This makes a CVSTrac install a bit more complicated to manage. It would be nice if, instead of calling external programs, we could just invoke subroutines in an embedded scripting language. I.e. rather than "program %S1 %S2 %S3", we'd call a subroutine with the list of substitutions as parameters: sub program { my %parms = @_; print $parms{S1}; } Example is in perl, but any embeddable language with associated arrays (Tcl, Python, Ruby?) would work. It would be necessary to make CVSTrac support more than one language, obviously, because there's no chance that we'd ever get concensus on a single language. Handling of script output is a bit more complicated. Would probably require exporting =cgi_printf()= and/or =cgi_append_content()= or something... edit

622 new active 2006 May anonymous 2006 May drh 3 3 proper base URL handling when running behind mod_proxy I run cvstrac on a different server than the one actually fielding the request, using Apache mod_proxy to do reverse proxying. This is a fairly common configuration, specially when you are trying to make cvstrac appear as a logical part of a larger site. When serving up a RSS feed, however, cvstrac embeds absolute URLs to the proxied server's URL rather than the user-visible one. The following patch fixes this in my environment (we use Dan Bernstein's {link: UCSPI-TCP} rather than inetd to manage connections). It does make the assumption that mod_proxy's =X-Forwarded-Host:= header (the one sent by the browser) will come after the =Host:= header generated by mod_proxy. It is quite likely cvstrac configured to use CGI will need equivalent patching elsewhere to get the same information from an environment variable. <html><pre> *** cgi.c~ Fri May 26 07:20:28 2006 --- cgi.c Wed May 31 16:09:36 2006 *************** *** 2507,2512 **** --- 2507,2514 ---- putenv(mprintf("HTTP_REFERER=%s", zVal)); }else if( strcmp(zFieldName,"host:")==0 ){ putenv(mprintf("HTTP_HOST=%s", zVal)); + }else if( strcmp(zFieldName,"x-forwarded-host:")==0 ){ + putenv(mprintf("HTTP_HOST=%s", zVal)); }else if( strcmp(zFieldName,"content-type:")==0 ){ putenv(mprintf("CONTENT_TYPE=%s", zVal)); }else if( strcmp(zFieldName,"cookie:")==0 ){ </pre></html> edit

639 new active 2006 Jul anonymous 2006 Jul cpb 5 4 Suggestion: grouping and ordering for list of available report formats Since the list of reports on our system grows larger every day, it would be nice to have a means of grouping reports in a tree like structure. For the time being it would suffice to let the group structure to be only one level deep. Example: <html> <ul> <li><b>Development</b></li> <ol> <li><a href="rptview?rn=14">Active tickets by priority</a></li> <li>...</li> </ol> <li><b>Quality assurance</b></li> <ol> <li><a href="rptview?rn=63">Showstoppers</a></li> <li><a href="rptview?rn=7">Ticket counts by status</a></li> <li>...</li> </ol> <li><b>Misc.</b></li> <ol> <li><a href="rptview?rn=70">Wiki Search</a></li> <li>...</li> </ol> </ul> </html> One-level grouping could be done by one new field named 'group' in REPORTFMT, which could be edited on the rptnew and rptedit page by two input fields: "Assign to report group" (drop list showing previously defined groups) and "Assign to new report group" (free edit field). For report ordering I don't have a simple suggestion other than providing a new field named 'ordinal', which the user can edit freely. edit

It would be _really nice_ if it figured out which tags were branches and flagged them somehow. Perhaps this information could go into a separate TAGS table. Otherwise, the only way to find out if a branch is a branch is when someone commits on the branch. This may never happen. Branch detection can't be done by looking at =CVSROOT/history= (the -b option doesn't come through in any way), so it'd require looking at an arbitrary RCS file under the tagged module directory to determine whether it's a branch or not. edit
673 new active 2006 Nov anonymous 2006 Nov cpb 3 3 custom block wiki markups should have additional substitutions I am trying to write a custom block markup that would allow inserting inline graphs produced by graphviz, similar to the excellent {link: dot plugin for Twiki}. The way it would work is the external program would take %b, unescape it and run dot/neato/circo on it (depending on =%m=), attach the resulting PNG to the wiki entry (by accessing the CVStrac table directly) and output an =<img>= tag linking to it. The program would use a MD5 checksum to avoid rerunning graphviz if it had already been run on the exact same text (the attachment would be in effect a cache). To do this, the program needs: *: the name of the SQLite database (=%B= ?) (although that could be hardcoded in the custom markup declaration) *: the name of the wiki entry or ticket (e.g. =%W=) so it knows which entry to attach it to. *: optionally a list of attachments to the wiki page (=%A= ?) These two substitutions would make truly powerful block markups easier. In the meantime, I will leverage the fact SQLite does not enforce referential integrity to attach the generated PNG nowhere. edit

I suspect that the "best" solution to this sort of thing would be to introduce a {quote:{remark: <user> <when>}} markup which automatically formats everything appropriately and inserts an anchor (a per-page counter would probably be best). This would be extremely useful for RSS links, particularly in RSS readers which can automatically load the web page rather than view the RSS (i.e. akregator). edit

The user is free to delete the text, but they have to "want to". Why not just be able to add default text for any field just like the ones that are setup-able. This saves time in a process by having fewer tickets get rejected or handed back to the submitter for revision or clarification. Another nicety would be to set "required text" just like cvs checkins can have. Then the submitter would immediately know they didn't do enough boiler-plate stuff . . . or that it was impermissible to delete the template. edit

231 todo active 2003 Jul anonymous 2007 Oct cpb 4 1 Replace all hard-coded colors with CSS classes Customizing CVStrac can be a hellish nuisance with all the hard-coded colors within the C code. This is especially true in report tables, where there is no way to customize the rows themselves. My proposal is to make CVStrac layout and coloring fully CSS-based. In this fashion, a report table would have the following tagging: <table class="reportTable" ...> <tr class="reportHeader"><td class="reportHeader ticketNumber">... <tr class="reportRow activeTicket">...<td class="activeTicket ticketSubsys"> ...etc. Note the use of multiple classes to enable full customization. You can, for instance, say: .reportTable { font-size: 8pt; } .reportHeader { font-weight: bold; text-align: center; } .reportRow { padding: 2px; } .ticketNumber { font-face: Courier; } .ticketSubsys { font-style: italic; } .activeTicket { background-color: orange; } This would make the entire table 8pt size, the report headers bold and centered, give each report row extra padding, and give distinct coloring and fonts to both active ticket rows and specific columns. I might find the time to make a patch, but I'd like to have some feedback first as to whether this would be incorporated. edit

730 new active 2007 Nov anonymous 2007 Nov cpb 4 3 Need Massive Edit Mode (Multiple Items in one view) We are using svntrac quite regularly and one of the most frustrating things right now is that there is no easy way to do massive editing of tickets. For instance, as we are nearing a release milestone, we want to review the tickets and do a quick in/out analysis and there is no way to do things like setting the priority, or changing other fields all from one page. For example, suppose you have a field called "Target Release" and your normal priority columns and you are looking at 200 tickets that you own. Often from the description you could figure out if this is for this release or the next release and also set the appropriate pulldown. The resulting report would have pulldown items instead of text for some of the columns and when you push update, it would update all of them at once. edit
735 new active 2007 Dec anonymous 2007 Dec   4 3 add some flexibility in CGI args With some simple web servers (SHTTPD, Abyss) it is convenient to pass the script pathname as an argument to svntrac.exe. For example, you could set up Abyss to use svntrac.exe as a script interpreter with args "cgi <dir> %1" where <dir> is a pathname, and the %1 is filled in with the path to the cgi script. The name of the script is the name of the project -- the script file can be empty since svntrac doesn't open it; it can even be the database file. But svntrac doesn't strip the directories from the pathname so supplied as it normally does with the project name obtained form the URL or HTTP_POST. So, I added this feature in main: if( argc>=4 ){ /* The project name is specified on the command-line */ #ifdef CVSTRAC_WINDOWS /* e hack for Windows CGI */ i = strlen(argv[3]); while( i>0 && argv[3][i-1]!='\\' ){ i--; } g.zName = mprintf("%s", &argv[3][i]); #else g.zName = argv[3]; #endif cmdlineProj = 1; where the new stuff is in the {quote: #ifdef CVSTRAC_WINDOWS} section, but other than the path separator, is not really Windows specific. edit

This seems to be described also in #88 and #113. I ever use cvs import to checkin new source trees. That's why cvstrac didn't update the tables (if this is right). The problem is, using "cvs add" takes time, can only be used with a "find . -print -exec cvs add {} \;" to automate many file checkins, and "cvs add" is even not mentioned to use for cvs with initial checkins of complete source trees. There are two ideas how to "fix" this problem 1. Name the "Browse - Browse the CVS repository tree." menu as "Browse - Browse changed files in the repository tree.", but this is not the way i want to work with cvstrac *2.* Find a way to "reconstruct" the filechng (and other influenced tables) as setup-menu or as "realtime-sync-filetree-on-browse" which seems to be useful... Is there another way to fix this? cvs rtag tagname modname doesn't work, did i used the rtag command wrong ?` Bye, Bjoern edit

I FREQUENTLY run into situations where I'm editing a wiki entry, but while I'm doing so, my login cookie expires, and I get prompted for a new login. *poof* all my editing is lost. Unlike twiki (which I once used), you can't "go back" to a page you were editing, because those pages are created by "POST" requests, and are therefore not cached (I surmise). You also can't "checkpoint" pages as you're editing. Is there any way to have the tool either (a) capture the data provisionally when a timeout is detected, or (b) not use POST to edit pages, so that I can at least go "back" in the browser to cut my edits and paste them into a new session. In a related problem, I sometimes run across the magic key sequence that closes tabs, and, again, all my updates are lost in a flash, since I can't "go back" and get to my edits again. edit

I think a few changes might be useful: First, the existing inspection is a text "result" field. To make that more useful, it might be nice to make it available as a drop-down list of options similar to how the "extra" ticket fields work. That is, could be free form, could be a strict list of "pass", "fail", "tested", "rejected", etc. Second, a wiki comment field is needed for inspections. For backwards compatibility, this should be separate from the "result" field. Those are the two main things. There might be more as I think of them. edit

791 new active 2009 Mar anonymous 2009 Mar cpb 5 4 RSS view of individual ticket history In Firefox, in the location bar, the RSS icon tooltip reads: "Subscribe to *this page*..." Not only did I mistakenly "subscribe" to my timeline a couple of times before I realized it wasn't the ticket history feed, but thinking back about that mishap it seems to me that an RSS version of tkthistory could be relatively easy to implement. As for linking, unless someone has a better suggestion, I'd be enclined to have cvstrac provide the RSS feed URL in a value expanded in the header instead of leaving it in plain text as it currently is. The advantage would be that on ticket pages (tktview, tkthistory at least) instead of linking to the timeline RSS URL, it would provide the ticket-specific history RSS URL. About making an RSS version of tkthistory, I think I might be able to do it. For actually making the URL available in the header properly, I'm not so sure. (I was about to implement it as an external tool in PHP, when I realized it would fit well within your core features. Needless to say it would also make following up on tickets we created at much easier, though for that, a filtered version of the timeline would probably be even more efficient.) edit

The way I've seen cpb "fake" quoting for example in #788 I suspect that this minor improvement would be welcome for all. :) (Okay fine, might as well tell you: I wrote a pretty neat e-mail gateway for CVSTrac in PHP, which allows replying as remarks, notifying the relevant contacts, etc. The one problem I have is displaying quoted portions of messages added to description/remarks and this will solve it.) I'm opening a ticket about it to get feedback as to whether I should post the patch here. So, comments are welcome.

So when viewing a ticket or check-in, if I don't login in first, logging them means I have to manually use the browser's back button's history to go back to where I wanted to be at, the original page, albeit now logged in (thus able to comment / inspect, see source). I realize this likely may require minimal {quote: JavaScript}, but it should be trivial. <input type="button" value="angry monkeys" onClick="history.go(-1)"> or <a href="javascript:history.go(-3)">cargo cult edit

816 new active 2010 Jan anonymous 2010 Jan cpb 4 3 RFE: Make it easier to edit tickets with curl Use Case: Bulk editing of tickets{linebreak} Desire: An API to gittrac for ticket edits{linebreak} Ideas: 1: sqlite script 1: curl script posting to tktedit 1: API with language bindings Cons: (1) must be kept in sync with ticket_edit(); (2) currently cumbersome (see below); (3) doesn't exist (1), ticket_edit() isn't simple: SELECT MAX(ROWID)+1 FROM tktchng, UPDATE ticket, INSERT INTO tktchng, SELECT MAX(ROWID) from tktchng, UPDATE ticket, DELETE FROM xref, INSERT INTO xref (2), retrieve a login cookie curl -c cookies -d u=setup -d p=setup -d in= http://localhost/login get the csrf token X=encode64(<login cookie value>){linebreak} Y=encode64(<login cookie name>) then post the edit curl -b cookies -d tn=1 -d le=0 -d submit= -d X=Y -d t=NewSubject ... http://localhost/tktedit (2) appears simpler, but the encode64 step and "..." make it complex. The encode64 step is a custom base64 encoding, and "..." means that all fields of the ticket must be sent for the edit to be accepted. (Yes, the encode64 could be avoided by scraping tktedit?tn=#) Two code changes could make (2) as simple as it appears above. First, encode64's zBase could be changed to the more common A-Za-z0-9+/, effectively turning encode64 into base64 (provided by encoders such as openssl base64). Second, ticket_edit can cnt++ when aParm[i].zNew==0, thus allowing for a partial post of ticket fields. Are there problems with the approach in (2)? How important is the cnt input validation in ticket_edit? Is a zBase of 0-9a-z_A-Z~ just for obfuscation? edit
818 new active 2010 Jul anonymous 2010 Aug cpb 5 3 feature request: user interface improvements This is a feature request for user interface improvements. On the ticket lists, there is an edit button at the end. In order to action a ticket, we have to click edit, then perform an action. It would be better to go straight into an action here, providing a window that allows us to add a comment and change the ticket status. This would make the ticketing system easier to use because it is more likely that a user want to action against a ticket, than edit it. If the user wants to view or edit a ticket, he can simply click on the ticket number and then press edit (which he can do already). The action button would basically be the same as the "append remarks" facility that we have now, but the "append remarks" facility would have the additional option to change the ticket status at the same time. (This would be a useful change anyway), because in closing a ticket, typically we want to add a comment. Currently to close a ticket, we add remarks, then edit the ticket, again to change the status. With this proposed revision, we could add remarks and change ticket statuses easily and quickly. edit
822 new active 2010 Nov anonymous 2010 Nov cpb 4 4 adding option to Search, so as to allow results to be ordered by date The CVSTrac-wide =Search= could be infinitely more useful if it was able to sort the results by date (i.e. reverse chronological order typically, newest first) or other orderings (newest/oldest ticket #). While I realize that it is likely doable with Reports, it seems like it could easily be an out-of-the-box option without much work. (=ORDER BY=) edit

Yes, tiny files will be ok, but how about large files? So, i want to store attachments as files with record information in the database. However, im not good at programming, so I couldn't do it by myself. Any ideas? edit
828 new active 2011 Jul cpb 2011 Jul cpb 4 3 should be able to replace/update attachments Attachments are useful, but there's no easy way to replace/update them. Presently, deleting an attachment is _hard_. [594] expanded the rules a bit to mostly prevent abuse and allow users to fix their screw ups. Philosophically, I think there's a strong argument that if an attachment is worth adding to a CVSTrac artifact, it's worth keeping similar to a SCM artifact. That is, deletion _should_ be hard, but there should be some concept of revisioning. Because attachments are artifacts outside the SCM, we'd want to be flexible in terms of naming. Filename-based versions would obviously be common. I'm thinking of a dialog selector of "previous" attachments which can be selected to indicate that a new upload supersedes an existing attachment. That can be easily handled by a new "prevatn" field in the database schema. edit
829 new active 2012 Feb anonymous 2012 Feb cpb 5 4 Wiki Page for Inspections needs some tweaking The explanation about inspections on CvstracInspection should be revised: With the additional comment field the limit is no longer 40 characters. And an advice on what to put into which field would be nice. As well, as an option to _edit_ the inspections. This way you could specify the testing that should be done and after some time when the test has concluded summarize it in the short result field. There is also a small typo: "If they check-in is associated" should either be _the_ check-in or _their_ check-in. This is a "Help" page, so it can't just be edited and corrected as any other Wiki page. edit
504 new active 2005 Nov anonymous 2014 Feb drh 2 2 Timeline is not saving date in Defaults - VERY annoying! The Timeline feature is interesting, but rendered only half-useful, because it defaults to "today and backward", no matter what the user wants. Entering a future date (e.g. 2020-Jan-01) so that all milestone dates are visible (highly desirable behavior on my entire development team) and clicking "Make Default" does not save the preferred date. I understand that "Make Default" could end up saving today's date and making the feature of dubious use for those who (if there are any) don't want to see future dates in the timeline, so I would propose a checkbox next to "Make Default" that says "include date in saved default", checked "off" by default. I think this single change would improve CVSTrac's overall usefulness by about 20%. Seriously. edit
836 new active 2014 Apr anonymous 2014 May cpb 4 3 Pass cgi parameters from wiki page into embedded reports I've modified format.c and view.c:embed_view() to allow wiki syntax like: {quote: {report:rn?Param=Blah Title} } So that reports using the cgi() function can receive params from the wiki. This was a quick hack, but it works well enough for my office. The original syntax of {quote: report: rn}} and {quote: {report:rn title} } still work as expected. I'm not sure how to contact the maintainer of cvstrac though. How do I go about submitting a patch? Possibly related to #561 and #742 edit

813 code active 2009 Nov anonymous 2017 Mar cpb 4 4 Sorting reports with date columns The reports do all have column headers that work as hyperlinks and trigger a re-ordering of the report's records. That's a nice feature if used with the severity, priority and status columns, because usually the color of the records is only based on one of these columns. It doesn't work that smoothly with the date columns _origtime_ and _changetime_. Especially if you use sdate() to format the date columns. The way how it is implemented (and the simplicity of this has my admiration) applies the sorting to the formatted columns. rptview?rn=1&order_by=5&order_dir=ASC If you have more recent dates including changes of today you might have after the sort by the sdate() column: | 13:07 | A Ticket of today | | 2007 Nov | Ticket from 2 years back | | 2007 Oct | another Ticket | | Nov 05 | From this month | | Jun 18 | 4 months back | Check the report 9 to see this at work. At the moment I would need to guess if a report might use with "sorted by date columns", avoid sdate() for this report and use instead a "sortable" date like ISO date. But "sortable" has always the drawback to be longer, because the year must be always included. Would it be possible to use a derived sdate() function that includes a hidden sort part, something like: <span class="invisible">2009-11-12 13:07:23</span> 13:07 But that wouldn't be nice for older browsers that are not able to hide content. The other approach would be to change the generic way how the hyperlinks for the column headers are build. In that case the procedure that generates the header row needs to have some knowledge on the type of the selected columns. Seems to be complicated. edit

719 code active 2007 Sep anonymous 2017 Mar cpb 4 3 Quote cleanup still not as advertised "Text is stripped of all single-quotes and backslashes before it is substituted, so if the substitution is itself enclosed in single-quotes, it will always be treated as a single token by the shell." Having a few blank or odd spots in the text is an OK compromise. That sure doesn't sound like all the text is going to be gone though. An ordinary user of cvstrac will likely use single quotes or back slash occasionally and then wonder why the text is not in the email message. OK I can get the description and remarks text out of the DB but only the wiki version. Not so nice as HTML! SO: 1) The warning is wrong. Maybe it should also be noted in the hints what want show up via notify. 2) Let(no single quote:)s add forward quote as another issue too. Ya know the one right below the tilde~ on most keyboards. If that is in the description or remarks then my email script doesn't even get called. edit

It's working nearly fine in CGI mode with suExec module enabled. It seems that it is not possible to edit the tickets. I've tried with different users with full rights. When trying to edit the tickets, I get a server error with the following error logs in /var/log/apache2/error.log : index.cgi: line 2: 18143 Segmentation fault /usr/bin/cvstrac cgi /var/www/cvstrac server{linebreak} [Tue Dec 05 17:02:14 2006] [error] [client] Premature end of script headers: index.cgi, referer:{linebreak} I've tried to use the cvstrack server directly to see if it was CGI related. The result is not better. When in server mode and trying to edit a ticket, I receive an empty page ... Any help would be greatly appreciated because at the moment, the system is not functionnal. I can provide much more details if needed. I can provide a web access to the installation if needed. Thanks in advance, Didrik edit
812 code new 2009 Oct anonymous 2017 Mar cpb 1 3 Tarball of cvstrac 2.0.1 STILL crashes on Snow Leopard (OS X 10.6) From #808 it was determined that _sqlite3_free_ needed called instead of _free_ in some cases for file db.c #808 notes that "This was fixed previously in [969] (almost two years ago)." However, the tarball download of version 2.0.1 of cvstrac does NOT seem to contain the fixes from [969], therefore a compiled version of this code of cvstrac on MacOS 10.6.1 will still crash with malloc errors. Can the tarball be updated to include the latest fixes? edit
