1 NewsStats To-Do List
2 ====================
3
4This is a list of planned bug fixes, improvements and enhancements for
5NewsStats.
6
7Bug numbers refer to the Mantis issue tracker at <http://bugs.th-h.de/>.
8
9* General
10 - Improve Documentation
11 The documentation is rather sparse and could use some improvement.
12 - Add a test suite
13 There is currently no kind of test suite or regression tests. Something like
14 that is badly needed.

TH
15 - separate directories (bin, config, ...)
16 - make NewsStats installable in accordance with LFS and customary procedures,
17 i.e. scripts to /usr/local/news/bin or /usr/lib/news/bin, configuration
18 to /usr/local/news/etc or /etc/news and so on

20* Additional features
21 - Add hierarchy information (GroupInfo - Bugs #19 #20 #21 #22 #23 #24 #25 #26)
22 NewsStats should be able to recognize invalid (i.e. officially not existing)
23 newsgroups and - optionally - drop them from the list of groups. On the
24 other hand, it should recognize existing, but empty groups and add them with
25 a posting count of 0 to its list.
26 NewsStats should be able to do that for any past month.
27 It would be nice to make up a kind of hierarchy database from that with
28 information like description, charter and moderation status. You should be
29 able to get a list of valid groups for any given month (with a bit of slack
30 for late creation and deletion), optionally including the previously
31 mentioned information; and you should be able to get the history of any
32 group.
33 - Add other reports
34 NewsStats should include some other kinds of reports (stats on used clients,
35 on postings hosts/servers, ...)

36 - Add tools for database management
37 NewsStats should offer tools e.g. to inject postings into the 'raw' database,
38 or to split databases.
