TRACKER/FLYSPRAY: When and How to use it
 
Please use TRACKER/FLYSPRAY with no limitation; you will be sure that any bugs, any remarks, any suggestions... will be analyzed and taken into account.

These last few weeks, a great job has been done (rgleason & AISEAG) to help you to use it more efficiently.


How to access TRACKER/FLYSPRAY:
Select the “tracker Button” (http://opencpn.org/ocpn/) in the upper right hand side of the menu.

How to register onto TRACKER/FLYSPRAY:
In the upper part of the screen; there is a place to register, and a place to login.
Nota: no registration gives a limited access to functionalities

How to select a category (project):
in the 2nd line of the screen (upper left Handside); a listbox with categories (project list) concerning OpenCPN and Plugins has been set.
So far, in the project list, you can select between :
All Projects
0 - OpenCPN Feature Requests [for Opencpn feature requests)
1 - OpenCPN 3.2.x Stable
2 - OpenCPN 3.3.x Beta
OpenCPN x.x (old versions - clearance in progress)
pi-AIS Radar [for AIS plugin bugs & feature requests]
pi-BSB 4 [similar]
pi-Calculator

... etc
Plugin System [for the "plugin system"]

How to enter a request:
Browse through the tasklist to be sure that it is not already there; if not
Concerning OpenCPN :
- ask for a new functionality by address it via ‘new features’ project.
- report a bug by address it to the version of your running OpenCPN

Concerning Plugins:
- address by Plugin and identify "beta" or "release" and "bug" or "feature" and name (and version) of plugin.

Closing a request:
When a new version of OpenCPN and/or plugin has been released, check if your submitted requests have been taken into account, if yes, thanks for asking for its closure.

How to vote for a request:
Select a task and click on the “vote button” on the Left handside
To be used with no moderation, this is how to pinpoint what functionality is important to you.
Nota: by pressing “overview” you will get the list for the most wanted task of the category.

Thanks everyone

So might perhaps ask a moderator to make this "sticky" so that it does not get lost.

Once upon a time I had a mail from the tracker if something changed in a task I was watching. I would be great if this could be restored.

Hint : How to get a list sorted ?

For each category (project); hake a look on the line like this one :

http://opencpn.org/ocpn/flyspray/the...boodleloop.pngID Task Type Severity Summary Status Opened Last Edited Votes

Click on the item you want to be sorted and the system will present the list in ascending / descending way.

Re: TRACKER/FLYSPRAY: When and How to use it
 
How do we get some of the Programers who have developed some great plugins to sign into Tracker as "Developers"? I believe it would facilitate the development process big time!

Thanks

I hope most people will bring up their concerns or bugs in the forum, here, first.
I hope they will continue to do so.
Here's a good example:
FS#1170 : Charts CM 93 offsets correction error.

Two small things.

The Date/Time stamp is missing from the posts (comments).

Every user name has the string " - taifun" added to it.
While this is kind of flattering, it's not quite appropriate. :whistling:

Hint #5 : Do I need to be identified to use Tracker/Flyspray ?

No, you do not need to be identified to use Tracker/Flyspray, but you will have access to limited functionalities.

When you are use Tracker/Flyspray with no identification, these 3 fields "Username", "Password" and "remenber me" are blanks.

Still no change. FlySpray is used a lot by different projects. Have a look here
FS#5269 : can't turn on iriver with the h300 non-lcd remote.
Just an example from the RockBox tracker.
Our tracker used to have these time stamps.
It is confusing when you don't know when a post was posted.
Imagine this forum without time stamps.
