You are using WebSVN on your server? The I recommend to have the following robots.txt in place:
User-agent: * Disallow: /websvn/log.php Disallow: /websvn/comp.php Disallow: /websvn/blame.php Disallow: /websvn/rss.php
The reason is that search engine robots could consume your server performance, especially when your Subversion repository contains larger files. But even if not: there is no reason why robots should index each and every diff between revisions. 🙂
I relocated the server beginning of June. This results in a few outages of Jira and Subversion. Especially SVN users shall be aware that the SVN host is svn.ralph-schuster.eu now. Older SVN URLs will not work anymore.
Almost all services are already fully functioning. The remaining services will be back within a few days.
Thank you for your patience and sorry for the inconvinience.
PS: All sites are available with HTTPS now (using a self-signed cetificate).
I didn’t created a Windows executable that runs without any additional library. So you have to build the version from your own scratch. The source code is available at my Subversion repository.
I was lucky to test IceScrum, a french project, within our company. The test went quite well until we migrated to new Release 4. It seemed to be stable for a few hours. Then several users complained. They couldn’t login anymore. As an administrator I found out that the common reason for this is them missing Administrator role. By doing so, I could solve the problem.
However, several other problems stayed. Browsing projects wasn’t possible as well as browsing teams. Tasks could not be created anymore. 🙁
So here is my advice: Don’t upgrade yet to release 4. The release is an advance, definitely. But the bugs are too heavy to productively use it.
PS: Downgrading is a nightmare. Please, make a database backup before installing release 4. It will save you a lot of effort.
This maintenance release was awaited for quite a long time now. Due to some personal restrictions, I wasn’t able to publish it earlier. Version 2.2 doesn’t add any functionality but upgraded Apache’s POI library that can handle newer Excel versions.
I know, 2011 has already started a few weeks ago. However, I still owe you the DIY Planner calendar. Of course, the calendar differs from Ygor’s template in having week numbers on all templates. This year, I translated it to German as well, so you can have the German or the English version for download.
Unfortunately, I haven’t been able yet to create a Windows executable that runs without any additional library. So you have to build the version from your own scratch. The source code is available at my Subversion repository.
The default solution to subversion browsing is WebDAV within Apache. However, it has some drawbacks. You cannot browse history, see comment histories or even check filestamps.
WebSVN provides all these features and comes along with a very modern style. The best of all: You don’t need to install any additional modules. All that WebSVN requires is a current PHP version.
I just switched from the WebDAV solution here on my server to WebSVN. So, check it out…
