Better yet: Instead of mentioning the PID, link to /daemon/log/.../, it already contains the necessary information (except the UID). There actually is no need for the lengthy list of "expected/actual/started" usernames, which I suggested, if you provide a list of affected daemons with links to their log.

The issue is that moving a wiki page leaves around a redirect, which other users can still stumple upon, which is bad from a privacy perspective (since the old content can still be restored from the history). Sadly on our installation some very generic names were choosen, which also collide with new project names.

I would argue differently ("T8972 is the reason I noticed that conpherence does not allow me to revert mistakes when editing rooms"). If fixing T8972 also allows me to revert the room picture to the original state, then that's fine with me.

One issue might be projects and their member list. Users from other spaces should probably be replaced with a "question mark" placeholder, so that others don't know who it is, but see that the project has some members. That way generic cross-space groups don't become a privacy/security issue.

devurandom added a comment to T7691: Relative wiki links.

This comes up quite regularly among my users. Even for me it is rather annoying to always have to type full paths - the common case in our (including my) workflow seems to be to link to sub-pages, which becomes unnecessarily cumbersome in Phriction. Additionally this is contrary to experience with well known filesystem functions like symlinks, for example.

There is only one flavor of "Visible To", which is the second, more general one:

devurandom added a comment to T9167: Simplify destroying wiki pages.

We recently added external users to our install and have some wiki pages in general locations, which were visible to everyone (and easily reachable / easy to create name clashes). With adding Spaces and adding more external collaborators, we also introduced a new wiki structure (/our_org is where all our internal stuff goes; projects each get /the_project so they can be made accessible to externals if necessary). Thus I had to move a huge bunch of wiki pages (see T6004). Afterwards the old pages were left in a state were their history was still accessible to everyone, which I fixed by destroying them on the commandline. When destroying several dozen of pages, Actionshover: Flag For Laterright-clickCopy Link Location becomes cumbersome.

  • I could imagine tagging files to order them - that would allow to easily find them later.
  • Tagging wiki pages would also be great - e.g. to create a bidirectional link between a project and its wiki pages.
  • If a file that was uploaded by dropping it onto a wiki page (as in: drag & drop) would automatically be tagged with the tags of that wiki page, that would solve our problem.
