[question] Update previously published text in Redmine

Added by v ... 8 months ago

Is it possible for a basic user, like me, to update an issue/forum title, description, note (comment), ..., that I previously created?
Now, it seems not possible.

That is a good suggestion. I changed the permission levels so that you can edit your own issues and comments, but not those of other users.

Thank you, I'm now more comfortable before clicking on the "Submit" button.

I tried to edit and delete a note on this topic. Too bad that editing is not logged by Redmine. Same when deleting a note, not logged, no trace of the action.

Same for an issue note.

The only difference I noticed between a forum topic and an issue is that I can delete an entire forum topic but not an entire issue.

I believe you should need to reconsider migrating to an another project management platform before launching privacy webview.
It might create a migration havoc, but worth moving to a platform. I honestly prefer sourcehut, since it only runs on mailing lists.

RE: [question] Update previously published text in Redmine - Added by Soren Stoutner 4 months ago

I have considered doing so, although not because of any lack in the bug report and feature request abilities of Redmine itself, but rather for a much more sophisticated, distributed Git infrastructure. Right now I am the principle developer and those who have submitted code can do it by attaching patches if they like. But as Stoutner becomes larger and hires several full-time staff, using something like GitLab makes coordination of the code base much easier.

I would be inclined to run a self-hosted GitLab instance. Something like https://salsa.debian.org.

One of the reasons I have so far declined to do so is the the JavaScript load of a system like GitLab in monstrous. I could conceivably become involved in Redmine upstream and produce a version of their product that could run entirely without JavaScript (assuming they would be interested). But it would be near impossible to convert GitLab to such a system. Hence, for now, I am content to run with what I currently have in the hopes that a better option comes along.

Yes. Gitlab is monstrous in terms of script. You can consider sourcehut (https://sourcehut.org/). Drew Devault took amazing care building the platform. It's veery developer friendly. No JS needed. Supports markdowns. Ticket system (todo.sr.ht) is cross platform too. One can message from any platform like github, gitlab, etc without creating any sourcehut account. So, account management on self hosted instance would be much easy too.

It's made for devs like you mate. If not convinced yet, read https://blog.parasrah.com/posts/why-use-sourcehut/

Moving to a different project infrastructure like sourcehut, is expensive / takes time right ?

RE: [question] Update previously published text in Redmine - Added by Soren Stoutner 4 months ago

Sourcehut is an interesting project. Thanks for pointing it out to me. I will have to look into it more closely.

I see that they currently have Debian packages, but they are not part of the official Debian repositories.

https://man.sr.ht/packages.md

If I were to go down this route I would probably offer to work with their current packager to get their packages into shape to be included in the official Debian repositories, possibly even becoming the package maintainer myself.

All of that is probably a little bit down the road, but I will circle back to looking at it more closely at some point. I do like the idea of a completely JavaScript free solution.

RE: [question] Update previously published text in Redmine - Added by ask low 4 months ago

Sounds great. If you intend to do so, take little steps slowly & make sure the migration has to be very gradual.

Sourcehut sure be considered into the main repository. I think Drew knows debian community well. And he deliberately avoided main repository & maintaining his own.

RE: [question] Update previously published text in Redmine - Added by Soren Stoutner 4 months ago

The link above in RE: [question] Update previously published text in Redmine says that Sourcehut is currently in alpha and he doesn't consider it ready yet to be included in any official repositories.
