Lino Noi – a ticketing system for the Lino team?

Though Trac is maybe the most pleasant ticketing system in the world, I have a problem with it: I cannot customize it easily. As a result, I can’t refrain from thinking sometimes about writing a Lino application for managing our tickets. This morning I had another attack and worked on lino_noi and especially lino.modlib.tickets.

I splitted the “sessions” out of lino.modlib.tickets into a separate new plugin lino.modlib.clockings.

General new feature: attribute simple_parameters.

Lino accepts invalid value 2009-02-30 for DateField

humanlinks.LinksByHuman caused a traceback if one of the children of a person had such an invalid birth date. IncompleteDateField now has a validator to avoid this case. Added test case lino.projects.min2.tests.test_birth_date.

The Lino Welfare test suite had been broken for some time. Now it passes again.

Cannot save RichTextField when editing in own window

Gerd reported another problem: Cannot save RichTextField when editing in own window. Instead of saving, we get a traceback:

<class 'lino.core.actions.ShowDetailAction'> has no run_from_ui() method

Confirmed, but not yet resolved.
