Description

We suspect that multitude of user configuration knobs for reporting is not used, also, it complicates incorporation of new algorithms (especially reporting to more groups in one mail - To+Cc differentiation).

We need to review the group settings - how many are changed far from default, how, and for which groups and then consider finding reasonable systemwide defaults and possible removing some altogether.

After review and discussion:

  • template - visible and settable only by admin
  • reporting timing - systemwide config only
  • attachment size limit + compression + formats - let's get rid of attachments altogether, leave only link for download from web. As it will need some communication to users, let's track in separate ticket #6255.
  • as for locale and timestamps, still open for discussion, possibilities are:
    • leave as is (in reports to multiple recipients use the most specific one, others tough luck) - good for working with timestamps for local people
    • make reports bilingual
    • make reports english

After discussion - let's leave as is, we chose by most specific settings.

Mute + Redirect must stay per group for debugging, but only changeable by admin.
(And also reporting mode, changeable by group.)

Due to personal changes this haven't reached devel correctly, so we need to merge d282e3a0 (and nothing after) and put #6227 work on top of that.

In relation to #7257 we should
  • make redirect setting unreachable/invisible for users
  • (maybe change it to explicit email field instead of boolean dependent on some setting in configuration)
  • or remove it altogether (admin can always change target address - however that is visible to user then)

There are currently 43 groups where redirect is set to true, so I chose not to remove this setting. I changed the redirect setting to be only visible and settable by admin.

Other than that, I think that this task is done. The code is merged in the branch used for #6227.

I read the previous comments more carefully and I realized that:
  • template was removed completely. I mentioned that during one of the meetings and I think that it is fine. Correct me if I am wrong.
  • mute is still visible to everyone in the group and changeable by the group manager. Is that OK or should it only be changeable by admin as it was written in #note-5?

Agreed.

Admin can use redirect instead of mute, at he will be bothered by mails to solve the real problem.
