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.
15
16* Additional features
17 - Add hierarchy information (GroupInfo - Bugs #19 #20 #21 #22 #23 #24 #25 #26)
18 NewsStats should be able to recognize invalid (i.e. officially not existing)
19 newsgroups and - optionally - drop them from the list of groups. On the
20 other hand, it should recognize existing, but empty groups and add them with
21 a posting count of 0 to its list.
22 NewsStats should be able to do that for any past month.
23 It would be nice to make up a kind of hierarchy database from that with
24 information like description, charter and moderation status. You should be
25 able to get a list of valid groups for any given month (with a bit of slack
26 for late creation and deletion), optionally including the previously
27 mentioned information; and you should be able to get the history of any
28 group.
29 - Add other reports
30 NewsStats should include some other kinds of reports (stats on used clients,
31 on postings hosts/servers, ...)

32 - Add tools for database management
33 NewsStats should offer tools e.g. to inject postings into the 'raw' database,
34 or to split databases.

36* Individual improvements
37 + NewsStats.pm
38 - Add error handling when reading config (Bug #13)
39 NewsStats should check if all mandatory options are set. Some syntax or
40 content related checks would be in order.
41 Some other tests - working database connection, valid database and table
42 names - would be nice.
43
44 + install/install.pl
45 - Add / enhance / test error handling
46 - General tests and optimisations
47
48 + feedlog.pl
