Progress report and update schedule

I thought it might be useful to explain how I am going to organise the remaining updates needed before beta 3 released.

Phase 1 : Global update of public interface markup. This is now complete.

Phase 2 : Global update of admin cp. This is now 80%+ complete.

Phase 3 : When Phase 2 is completed commit the changes to svn. This will be the last global update. The markup scheme is essentially frozen at this point but there could be detailed changes.

Phase 4 : Go through each file individually sorting out any obvious bugs and inconsistencies. Also sort out output formatting and generally tidy up. At the same time sort out the corresponding language file. Commits can take place on a one file at a time basis without breaking anything.

Phase 5 : The altering of langauge files one at a time will almost certainly result in a large number of orphan entries particularly in common.php. At this point they will be removed en masse.

Phase 6 : Sort out a least one decent quality stylesheet.

That might look like a long list but virtually all the work is in Phases 1 and 2 which should be completed very shortly. For example, in the case of the smaller files, Phase 4 might only take a few minutes per file. Phase 5 consists largely of running an orphan finding script and then deleting whatever is found.


The only thing worse than finding a bug is knowing I created it in the first place.

Re: Progress report and update schedule

Phases 1 and 2 are complete. The only reason I haven't committed it is there is no functional stylesheet to go with it but that will soon be remedied.

Re: Progress report and update schedule

Hi i noticed that in the first post Paul stated 6 general points what needs to be done.

I have a question if new markup will be uploaded to SVN beafore the work on language files will be done or after that.

The order of work changed and point 6 (at least one working stylsheet) beacomed point 3. So i am yust wondering.

And later on you said:

So basicly my question was will new markup be commited to SVN before or after phase 4 and phase 5 will be completed.

Re: Progress report and update schedule

It will be committed exactly as I orginally said it would. When I said I hadn't commited because there was not functional stylesheet I meant exactly that. Phase 6 means turning a functional development stylesheet into something approaching production quality.
