Description
  1. There are many fields which are barely ever used.
  2. Some fields duplicate functionality and it's not clear what we should use.
  3. In some cases, comments are put in text areas and it's hard to follow. These should be in the threaded comments instead.


New contributors are lost. Old contributors are lost or dismayed.

Some duplicate fields are due to a previous effort to improve the workflow. Sadly, that work was never finished and we were left with duplicate fields. In a more recent period, multiple fields were added instead of just having one field with a bunch of check boxes.

This all needs to be cleaned up.

Oh yeah, and don't experiment on live data! nextdev.tiki.org is a good place to do this.

  1. Make stats on field usage.
  2. Any field which is used less than say 5% of the time should be considered for removal
  3. Fields like following can instead just be a category of an existing field
    • WishList Team - TODO - Confirm Bug on Trunk
    • WishList Team - TODO - Find on 9x
    • WishList Team - TODO - Find Culprit
  4. Merge duplicate fields
    • Rating-old & Rating
    • Status & Resolution status


PluginListExecute can be used to migrate data. Some data should just be used manually.

Keywords

The following is a list of keywords that should serve as hubs for navigation within the Tiki development and should correspond to documentation keywords.

Each feature in Tiki has a wiki page which regroups all the bugs, requests for enhancements, etc. It is somewhat a form of wiki-based project management. You can also express your interest in a feature by adding it to your profile. You can also try out the Dynamic filter.
