2configuration/installation:
3   
4unix:
5
6    - look into getting perl scripts to run correctly on any operating
7          system (i.e. the #! stuff) -- those in cgi-bin particularly need
8          to work on windows too (#!perl on windows, #!/use/bin/perl on
9          linux) -- perlrun manpage
10
11    - add fastcgi to distribution
12
13windows:
14
15    - use Installshield to create windows packages - wait for George to
16          decide what he's going to do about InstallShield
17
18    - call server version of cd-rom executable 'standard' and other
19          version 'backup' (or maybe 'gold' and 'silver'?)
20
21    - fix up Local Library - somehow need to have option of old server
22          and single-user (or Gold and Silver?) within same executable.
23
24
25tidy up text versions of macro files
26
27look further into creating images containing non-latin1 characters
28
29create default collection images at build time with gimp script
30
31fix query caching - do caching in receptionist, finish off cross collection
32searching, remove any remaining phrase-searching stuff in queryaction -
33maybe wait for mgpp before worrying about this
34
35create default images/macros for remaining Dublin core metadata elements -
36maybe have a separate macro file for all these things to make it easier to
37add to
38
39write a gzip/bzip/zip/tar plugin and take any remaining gzip stuff out of
40rest of plugins
41
42look at speeding up acronym extraction code, add more options
43
44create a general classifier for doing stuff like NPepaList.pm does. should
45handle things like HDLs organization classification, HDLs magazines section
46etc.
47
48for gsdl-3.0
49
50  - extend configuration file syntax - tidy up all the format stuff -
51    replace DocumentImages, DocumentTitles and DocumentHeading with
52    DocumentColumn stuff (develop New_Config_Format-branch CVS branch)
53
54  - tidy up classifiers, make collection-specific ones more object oriented
55    (probably create classifier base class), add section and compact
56    options instead of using separate classifiers - get classifiers using
57    same option passing code as plugins now use
58
59  - sort out arrows/paging of browserclasses (for queryaction too!)
60    DocumentBottomArrows?? - want arrows at bottom as well as top of pages
61    for gberg type collections
62
63  - tidy up automatic help text - need to work out type of collection at
64    build time - get rid of the hacky HelpNoDocs, HelpBibDocs and
65    HelpBookDocs config file entries
66
67  - fix up collection specific metadata - content negotiation??
68    "chapters" = "Kapiteln"
69    "section titles" = "Sektionstiteln"
70    "entire books" = "ganzen Büchern"
71
72  - add ability to use a separate formatstring for each index when
73    displaying query results
74
75  - make interface languages and encodings easier to add. defining
76    languages and encodings should be done in main.cfg (or collect.cfg for
77    collection specific control). should also define:
78      - which encodings a given language may use -- i.e. the preferences page
79      shouldn't let you select an encoding that doesn't work with the
80      currently selected language
81      - which encoding is the default for a given language
82      - which language is the default.
83
84
85tidy things up so that get_collectinfo is only called once per collection
86(at init time for fastcgi) - it's currently being called all over the
87place. maybe load collection info into recpt.collectinfo structure. load in
88as required for each collection so structure would slowly fill up with all
89collections when using fastcgi
90
91add Language metadata to all documents by default??
92
93usage page - Matthias Dalmeier
94
95create a usage page from ftp logs (build on ftp_stats.pl script)
96
97tidy up ohist to remove need for public_html/ohist stuff
98
99WebPlug - optimize to run reasonably quickly? - Currently works (I think)
100but processes each frame within each combination of a frameset - this means
101some html documents are processed hundreds of times and it takes forever to
102build a small collection
103
104update collections - set up auto-updating where needed
105        - csbib
106    - tidbits
107    - tcc - mail updating
108    - niupepa
109    - gberg
110
111sort documents between importing and building
112
113get polling for new collections to work when using fastcgi
114
115ipc and unesco collections have no 'about' text (maybe others too).
116
117compiler warnings
118
119windows cd-rom version
120
121    - message in browser selection box to say that IE isn't compatible
122      with 'silver' version (instead of simply greying out selection of
123      IE as currently happens).
124
125    - look into Belgium bug ("Netscape was unable to create a network
126          socket connection... " -- NT 4.0 -- no internet connection -- run
127          programs/accessories/communication/internet connection wizard,
128          answer LAN to all questions -- bug appears to be present if you
129          get above error message when attempting to access 127.0.0.1 --
130          look into testing for this problem from InstallShield, maybe try
131          reading from 127.0.0.1 and see if it times out?
132
133look into need for _LITTLE_ENDIAN flag in mg
134
135make all external nzdl.org pages plain html rather than macro pages. remove
136all related images from distribution
137
138ohists RealAudio server appears to be broken
139
140capability to view actual BibTeX entries of csbib (and maybe other?)
141collections
142
143scripts for installing w3mir - a .bat version of davids install.sh files
144
145implement proper unicode sorting within classifiers
146
147get file locking to work on non GSDL_USE_IOS_H compilers (VC++ 6.0)
148
149produce an error message when no "built" collections are available
150(currently only produce an error when no collections at all are available)
151
152have another go at getting gsdl_system() function to work properly on
153windows 95 (for end-user collection building)
