Subject Questions ad Allura ...
Date Wed, 22 Aug 2012 10:15:32 GMT
Hi there,

having been many years interested/active in <>
I have
experienced the project's switch to Allura.

The project is a long standing one, which means that the trackers have quite a few entries
developers have been accustomed to learning/seeing/printing code diffs right away to make
it easy to
study what got changed.

After some time of using the new system (to get accustomed to it) there are many, many
questions/problems opened, some of which can be answered/solved on the ooRexx developer list,
via Allura-trackers, but it seems for very important aspects of a developer system, there
is (yet?)
no solution or knowledge available.

Therefore I would like to kindly request comments/hints/pointers to the following three items,
are coming into ones way, being accustomed to the old system and not having found the counterparts
in the new Allura:

    Subject: 	[Oorexx-devel] Ad Allura interface: a few questions ...

    Sorry, if this has been answered already, just do not know the latest state.

      * Ad Patches: it is possible (following Mark's directions) to subscribe Patch messages
        merely pressing the envelope symbol on the Patch UI. However, how would one be able
to see
        the patch file (the diffs) from such a message?
          o One (a little bit cumbersome) way is to look in the left pane of commits and somehow
            pick the right commit from the bullet list that appears after a while in the center
            pane. However, once one gets to the diff page and tries to print it, the printout
            not contain any of the nicely formatted code! :(

      * Ad Bugs: is it possible to get the opening date, the submitter, such that one becomes
        to sort by them as well. It is strange that the order of showing tracker entries is
        oldest to latest, rather than the other way round (maybe the developers only use small
        databases where the order does not matter for them, but in a long standing project
one may
        have hundreds, maybe more tracker entries).

      * Ad svn commit diffs: it would be great, if the commit message contained links directly
        the files that got committed with links to diffs. (The same would be helpful for any
        submission, including the patches).

    Is there anything I could do to help get the above items tackled/resolved somehow?


Thanks in advance for any comments/hints/pointers (maybe time frames to expect feature changes
could help)!

N.B.: Please excuse my addressing this to allura-users and allura-dev, as I do not know which
list is appropriate for such questions.
