** Remove all setup_xfail

** If ay_sub_recipient is on, but ay_deleted_text is not on, we need
   to decide which async messages to send before we start subtracting
   things from the text.  The best solution is probably to never send
   ay_sub_recipient when texts are deleted.

** Add triggers have to have the capability of preventing addition.
   This is difficult since we check the validity of addition before
   adding the items. The prevention would have to happen in the check 
   phase, when the triggers are not called. The correct solution is
   probably to implement validation functions in addition to
   validation strings and let the validation function take care of
   checking if the item can be added.

** Call to s_fcrea_str in prot_a_get_token should be removed. There is 
   really no reason why we can't us a statically allocated string
   instead (I know, this is microoptimization, but this function gets
   called a *lot*)

** Change log.c to something better.

** Look over all places where restart_kom is called. Frequently the
   error is not severe enough to warrant panicing (or so I think.) For 
   example, if cached_create_person fails it is very serious, but all
   code that calls this function is prepared to deal with the
   problems.

105 106
** Actually remove all man pages.  This must wait till after the next release.

107 108 109 110 111 112 113 114 115
** We have to be able to limit creation of certain aux-items to users
   with special privileges. Most of the import/export items need
   this. Put in a new flag in the aux-item-definition file, add it to
   the parser, check it in aux_item_check_add_perm or whatever the
   hell the function was named. Test it. The biggest problem is to
   figure out what permissions should be needed. I suppose it's
   possible that we could let the user specify level and bits in the
   aux-items.conf file, but that would mean mucking more with the
   parser.

** Consider implementing aux-infos that are the "reverse" of a Mark,
   of the aux-info faq-text, of a presentation, et c. Once that is
   done, the mark_text field of the Text_stat can be removed. More
   importantly, it can easily be seen which conference a text is a
   presentation for (et c). We also get more redundancy that dbck can
   use. (3490225)

145

146 147 148
        I think that we want a more complex mark structure, and have
        both text and marker know about the marks on a particular
        text.
149

150 151 152 153 154
** 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.

   One problematic situation is when a new comment is created, and a
   conference that is a recipient of the commented text is not a
   member of the comment.  Any user that is a member of that
   conference will not receive the new_text message, so his cache will
   not be updated.

171

172 173 174
        Better still, implement a more complex mark structure rather
        than using the current mark number as a bitfield. We need to
        be able to see what marks are set on a given text. -- DCB

* Lower priority than the above-mentioned things.
182

183 184 185 186
** isc_disable()/isc_enable() should be used, so that a single session
   cannot starve other sessions.  We might need a better mechanism
   that isc_disable()/isc_enable.

** The Info structure should contain statistics about the server
   (uptime, other interesting stuff.) (from 1991)

** difftime is not used everywhere where it should be used. There are
   a few places where '-' is still used to get a diff in seconds.

** Fix something that can replace the user_area.  The elisp-client
   creates a new user-area each time a person creates a permanent
   filter.  What a waste of text numbers!  It would be better to have
   a way to store per-user configuration separately.  It should
   probably be keyed data, but separating it in different sections
   like we do with the user-area really doesn't make much sense.

** Comments should optionally inhibit the garb (3608307).  See IDEAS.

** Do something about how large texts are sent back to the client.  We
203

204

205 206 207
** Performance enhancement: Don't emit asynchronous messages
   immediately. Attempt to write, say, 4 KB of data at a time to the
   clients. The server currently makes a lot of small writes.
208

209 210
** Introduced aux-items that states that "this text is the
   presentation/motd of conference so-and-so".
211

212
** Run the garb at 02:00 (configurable) rather than every 24 hours.
213

214 215
** Some generalized way to query the server for (unread) texts with a
   certain aux-item set. (see 21415 for motivation)
216

217
** Write a "lyskomd hackers guide" (requested in 24684).
218

219
** Tree-structure for the conferences (41768). 
220

221 222
        Yay! See the IDEAS file for some concrete ideas on how to do
        this. -- DCB.
223

224 225 226
** 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.
227

228 229 230 231 232 233 234 235
   For active conferences, the l2g map is probably used a lot. However
   the created-texts map for a person is not used a lot. The
   read-texts part of memberships get updated a lot. For maximum gains
   we probably have to split off the created-texts map and make is
   possible to read individual memberships from disk. The entire thing
   should be hidden from most of the server by automatically reading
   bits of maps or memberships on demand from disk. High-level
   functions shouldn't have to know about this.
236

237 238
** Improve the data base. Text 250010 contains some ideas for a grand
   redesign.
239

240 241 242 243 244 245 246
** A better way to "list active conferences" than to get the
   conference status of every conference and sort them on the
   last-written field. According to 310351 PortaKOM had the command
   "Lista aktiva möten". We should be as good as PortaKOM in every
   aspect. But see text 3604479 which outlines a way to implement this
   in a client in a reasonably efficient way without support from the
   server.
247

248
** Stack-based slow searching?  See 1013917 for some ideas.
249

250 251 252 253
** 103=local-to-global and 34=get-map should be able to return more
   information when applied to e. g. letterboxes. It should return
   information about all texts that ACTPERS is allowed to read. See
   678026 and 678411 for more thoughts about this.

271

272 273 274
** A possibility to ask for conferences created after a certain date. 
   (1622840). Dubious value; the new conferences should have a
   presentation.
275

276 277 278 279 280 281 282
** Add a call to retrieve the highest used conference number, so that
   a client can loop over all conferences/detect when new conferences
   have been created while the client wasn't logged on.

** Add get_next_conf/get_previous_conf calls, to be able to loop
   through the conferences.

283 284
** A documented way to store the prefered language in the common area
   of the user area (1632323).
285

286 287 288
** Check the rules for when you are allowed to change a recpt to a
   cc-recpt. (1901530, 2329667, 2329682). (This may already be
   implemented -- check it.)
289

290 291 292 293
** It would be nice if an author could be notified whenever a text
   written by him was commented. 3381984 and 3382009 outlines a way to
   implement that using a special aux-info and automatic adding of a
   bcc-recpt by the server to the new comment.
294

295 296 297 298 299
** There should be a limit on how many texts you can mark as read in a 
   text to avoid the list becoming too long. This bug has a low
   priority. Footnote (1991-01-24): When Inge's Numlist package is
   finished, this won't matter any more. This bug requires no other
   action. Footnote (1999-01-18): When will the package be done?

   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.
        DONE. 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.
        DONE. Did the same for get-membership.

** Write a Texinfo manual for lyskomd based on the man pages.  
        DONE. Whee!

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


** Should we really retain deleted aux-items indefinitely? (3490203)
        DONE. No, and we don't any more.

** disconnect(0) should disconnect the current session. (806239)
        DONE. Session 0 is now always interpreted as the current
        session.

** Add the dbck reference to the lyskomd manual.
        DONE. There is now a dbck Texinfo manual

** An asynchronous message is sent to everybody when a secret
   conference changes its name. That is an unacceptable leak of
   sensitive information. (990788, 2804846)
        FIXED.

** Check that Async 13 is sent at the proper times (see 79208).
        FIXED.

** Newline terminates requests. Check that a wording similar to that
   in 1509862 is present in Protocol-A.texi.
        FIXED.

** 89=create-person should probably not do an automatic login. (Wasn't
   this discussed in KOM? Yes it was, in 3267591, but there are no
   surviving comments. Did anybody object? /ceder)
        DONE.

** Check change-what-am-i-doing very carefully. According to 915974
   and 916257 there may be a bug in it, but that is pure speculation.
        DISMISSED. Tried sending long, short and invalid strings. No
        dice. Code inspection of functions turn up nothing.

** Should the conference supervisor be able to set the secret bit of a
   membership type? Probably yes. Maybe no.
        DONE. Can't set forbid-secret to true if there are secret
        members. Conference supervisor will have to boot secret
        members or convince them to convert.

** Create a "server hackers guide" and move the contents of
   doc/server.extend (and several other files in the doc directory) to
   it. The "server hackers guide" should probably be an appendix of
   doc/lyskomd.texi.
        DONE.

** Test the interpretation of session 0 as the current session.
        DONE.

*** Integrate doc/Bugrapporter into this document.
        DONE.

        I think we can declare it dead. Membership flags have been
        added. How a membership breaks the read order is a client
        matter. I don't think it anything to do with the server. The

        about documenting it. Marks and keywords are covered by
        another todo item. We're doing external recipients with
        aux-items. Asynchronous message bit is done.  Server info is
        done. Don't do the mapcar function for this version. We are
        using latex to document the server. I declare this DONE.

   only when the array is insanely long, not just when it is longer

** Document aux-items for mail import/export. (3229403)

   Kommentar till text 3228797 av Jonas S Karlsson (Palmist)
   Mottagare: LysKOM; Utvecklingsgruppens interna möte <876>
   Markerad av 1 person.
   Ärende: 13, 14, 15
   ------------------------------------------------------------
   > Hmm, låter som en pik ;)
   
   Det menar du inte?
   
   Ceder har nog inga beskrivningar som har att göra med import av email.
   Det som ceder frågade om var en aux-item som används för att säta
   emailadress på personer, möten eller servern, inte texter.
   
   Som jag läser ditt mail så tycker du att följande aux-items behövs och
   är tillräckliga:
   
   1. Extern mottagare för inlägg
      Vad innehåller aux-item? En sladdpostadress? Vad används den till?
      Vem använder den?
   
   2. "Reply-to" på möten
      En Reply-To header som skall sättas på mail som exporteras från
      brevlådan. Vem är ansvarig för exporten? Klienten eller en
      exportör? 
   
   3. "From" på möten
      Se 2.
   
   4. CC på möten
      Se 2.
   
   5. Adress till mailinglista
      Kan sättas på möten och innehåller en sladdpostadress dit mail
      skall skickas. Vem är ansvarig för att skicka mail? En exportör
      eller klienten?
   
   6. Diverse mailhuvuden på enstaka importerade inlägg
      Du har nämnt message-id, from, reply-to, to och cc. Jag föreslår
      att man dessutom har ett item som säger att inlägget är ett
      importerat mail och att man sparar alla headerrader i inlägget.
      Det är upp till klienten att besluta om den skall visa dem eller
      inte. 
   
   7. "Spamfilter"
      En sträng som tolkas av importören. Antagligen vill du ha
      klientspecifika aux-items för detta, om du inte definierar ett
      lagom stort och stabilt språk för filtreringen. 
   
   
   Är det här tillräckligt? Om så är fallet, checka ut aux-items.def ur
   lyskomd, skriv in dina definitioner och dokumentera dem i
   Protocol-A.texi.
   (3229403) ------------------------------------------
   

** Fix aux-item 13, 14 and 15 according to 3228006 and 3228045.

   ------------------------------------------------------------
   13 och 14 ser bra ut. Jag tycker du tar bort parentesen i slutet av
   beskrivningen av vad 13 betyder när den är satt på ett möte.
   
   Eventuellt skulle man kunna säga på nummer 13 att innehållet får bestå
   av två saker separerade med space. Det första är i så fall en
   identifierare. Följande identifierare är definierade: "list-address"
   och "subscription-address". Eller nåt. Jag vet inte. Skriv något åt
   det här hållet om du tycker det verkar OK.

   ------------------------------------------------------------
   Jag skulle nog nästan hellre stoppa in en ny aux-item som är
   moderatoradress.  Eller rent av låta list-address och
   subscription-address vara två nya aux-items, och bara tillåta nummer
   13 på brevlådor.  Då blir 13 en persons emailaddress.
   
   Hmm.  För ett möte som "Idonex" vill man kanske stoppa dit en aux-item
   som är något typ "sales@idonex.se".  Renast blir nog om 13 står för
   emailadresser som hör till en fysisk person, juridisk person, eller
   liknande.  (Filosofisk fråga: är en mailinglista "något liknande"
   eller något väsensskillt?)
