* Missinc test cases in 03.exp

* 89=create-person should probably not do an automatic login.  (Wasn't
  this discussed in KOM?)

    I think the current behavior is so deeply entrenched that we
    shouldn't change the it. Leave it alone.

As soon as possible

High priority, but they can wait until after the next release.

* Proof-read Protocol-A.texi.

106 107 108 109 110 111
* Consider implementing an aux-info that causes comments of a text, or
  of all texts written by the author, to get a bcc-recpt to the
  authors letterbox.  Make sure that this bcc-recpt is not the only
  thing that makes it possible for the person to read the
  text. (3381984, 3382009)

* The text-mass file should contain some redundancy.  At a minimum, it
  should store the text number and text length of each text, so that
  there is absolutely no risk that the wrong text is displayed.  (That
  has acutally happened more than once due to faulty hardware or
  operating systems--we should do better.)

* Add an improved internal structure for the text_stat list to avoid a
  large fixed-size array.

* Document the mark bits. (6390, 24358, 24444, 40876, 42356)

* Document the user area.

* Fix case errors in type names etc (3267160).

Nice to have/do
===============

Lower priority than the above-mentioned things.

* Run the garb at 02:00 (configurable) rather than every 24 hours.

* get-n-unread as per 1111652.

* Some generalized way to query the server for (unread) texts with a
  certain aux-item set. (see 21415 for motivation)

* Write a "lyskomd hackers guide" (requested in 24684).

* Tree-structure for the conferences (41768).

* Don't include so much information in the Person and Conference
  structures internally in the server.  A Conference is (probably)
  used much more often than the large internal lists within it.

Fixed
=====

* Mention explicitly in the protocol spec that the cient cannot send
  "0 *" to the server.

    Already there.

* Fix dbck so that it can repair Member<->Membership inconsistencies.

    Done.

* Protocol-A.texi contains both INT32 and INTEGER. (3228850)

    Changed all INTEGER to INT32

* Protocol-A.texi uses mailbox and letterbox interchangeably.  Use one
  term only, or at least state explicitly that they are the same
  thing.

    Letterbox used in structures, mailbox in text. It's safe to
    replace all mailboxes with letterbox.

* String-Size is used but not defined in Protocol-A.texi. (3228850)

    Use INT32 instead

* Session-No is defined twice in Protocol-A.texi. (3228850)

    Removed second definition.

* Check the unused static function regarding aux-infos.

    Done.

* ceder thinks that the sender of a BCC recipient group should be
  allowed to see it, so that the sender can see when the recipient has
  read the text. (3380375, 3381048)

    Done.

* ceder thinks that a BCC recipient group should be visible to anybody
  that may become a member of the BCC recipient (as opposed to all
  members and all administrators), lest everybody starts to be passive
  members of every conference just to be able to see BCC recipients.
  (3380375, 3381048)

    Done.

* The redirect aux-info needs more documentation.  See FIXME comment
  in Protocol-A.texi.

    Fixed.

* Validation of aux-items.

    Regexp validation done.

* Ability to have a callback function when an aux-item is created,
  removed, changed or resurrected.  (This is according to 3053346
  critical.  Why?)

    Done.

* The Membership that is returned by 98=query-read-texts should
  include the position of the Membership.

    Whatever. Done.
