Cleanup this board
« on: February 18, 2011, 04:50:56 PM »
SMF 1.1 and SMF 2.0 are stable and all of the development efforts are focused on SMF 2.1. SMF 1.1 and SMF 2.0 are still, however, getting security fixes, and there are many bugs which have yet to be fixed.

This board has a lot of bugs that need to be confirmed, tracked, or moved to the fixed/closed board. Please help us in checking these bugs out, especially the ones concerning SMF 2.1.


If the bug still exists but is not found on the issue tracker (GitHub), please ask a team member to track it if you are not comfortable with using GitHub. Otherwise, you can move issues to GitHub by yourself.  If you're unsure please leave the bug topic alone and let someone else look in to it. Littering the board with requests for help will not assist anyone.

Thank you all so much for your help.

Maybe it is also a good idea to clean up all of the locked topics when we are done?

I was moving the "moved:" topics when I noticed a search bug. I'm leaving them there for now to confirm the bug. After I can target the source of the bug I'll remove them. I usually leave the "moved:" topics for 7 days or whenever I get to them so authors know that their bugs have been moved. On some of the much older ones, I just move them without a move topic.

It isn't major and this is getting OT, but it is currently showing the recycle board topics included in the search results.

Without bumping all the topics (if you prefer so let me know), here it is a list of what I've found.

These that are still valid:
If someone already knows if they are tracked in mantis I would not bother to search... :P

And these that seems to be fixed or not bugs:
Could anyone confirm all these topics can be moved away? :)

    out of your list to verify this one seems to be the only that i can verify still exists, it works fine in greek, but does not work in greek-utf8

    I tested a few other languages, dutch-uft8 and turkish-utf8, looks like turkish-utf8 has this issue as well but only for the character for wednesday in the mini calendar on the left side.

    also tested with russian-utf8, this issue seems to be able to be duplicated with any language that does not use the a-z alphabet for the first letter of each day of the week. I will bump that topic with further information.[/list]

    Ah, I forgot to say that I did the tests on RC5. ;)

    When you will clean all those "MOVED" topics?
    My Mods

    Sugested that too. Hey ho. I'd link you to the original discussion but it's not visible to most people (seekrit team board stuff that is more dangerous than wikileaks).

    They get removed from this board periodically, and have done for quite a while, usually a month or so after they were moved.

    And the lamp-light o'er him streaming throws his shadow on the floor

    Illori, I usually keep them around for a week to a month and remove them after that since they add a lot of clutter.

    It's not easy to check these reports against their related issue in Mantis if half or more are private :P

    There is no "half of them". Most of the tracked issues and tracked features/plans are publicly visible, currently.

    I have made the 2.1 project publicly accessible months ago. That means SMF 1.1, SMF 2.0, SMF Tools and SMF 2.1 are publicly accessible projects in the tracker.

    I believe there is a "Saguaro" project that isn't public - yet. It is more in the future, though, and it basically tracks features or enhancements or revamps proposed for the (farther) future.

    In any case, its accessibility will change after 2.0 final, along with many other things to open SMF development to the community, including planning/roadmaps for any versions.
    To-do lists are for deferral. The more things you write down the later they're done… until you have 100s of lists of things you don't do.

    There are still hundreds of untracked bugs. Please help us by confirming or denying that they still exist in the current stable version (on unmodded forums).

    I like numbers, so just for fun I'm fixing these figures. :)

    Total topics in the board: 421
    Redirects: 43
    Stickies: 2
    Tracked: 57

    15.2 % of the reported bugs are confirmed and tracked.

    You counted all of them? lol, that seems like a lot of work. It would definitely be cool to have these numbers up-to-date. Thanks :D
