Description Richard Li 2003-04-15 17:10:22 UTC
We should take a close look at the code written for RHCMS and decide what, if
anything, should be merged.

From Scott Seago:

Modifications which may be appropriate for core/cms

1)  Created com.arsdigita.bebop.form.Button class: Generates an html input
    type=button (as opposed to type=submit). Not clear if this component
    is really necessary, though. Button is only useful w/ javascript,
    and with javascript, the onClick function can return 'false' which
    has the same effect as creating a button.

2)  com.arsdigita.bebop.Paginator: access method for the Page Num
    selection model with getPageNumSelectionModel()

3)  Javascript-based date widget (com.arsdigita.bebop.form.JSDate).
    This would be a useful alternative to the basic bebop date class,
    but a non-javascript fallback would need to be developed.

4)  Misc. bebop components BodyAttributes, DynamicallyPrintable,
    JavaScript: possibly reusable for other purposes

5)  Folder index item UI: already integrated

6)  For /content/admin/item.jsp, redirect to login if the user is not
    logged in rather than throwing AccessDenied. This would be useful
    for cms checkin unless this code on the trunk has already been
    refactored to the point of this functionality no longer being

7)  SortableDomainObjectPropertySheet: alternative to the exising
    DomainObjectPropertySheet component that allows sort keys to be
    added when adding components -- this allows subclasses to add items
    to arbitrary locations rather than just at the end.

8)  added workflow task sort key to prevent item workflow steps from
    appearing out of order. I'm not sure if this is still a problem on
    the trunk or not.

9)  Fixed a bug with renaming folders to make sure both live and draft
    folders were renamed at the same time. Not sure if this is still a
    problem on the trunk.

10) Modified publishing code to allow scheduled republishing. This was
    a fairly major modification which was never pulled back onto the
    trunk, as there were several requirements disagreements as to how
    this should really be done. This code will not be used in
    subsequent CMS releases -- however the RHCMS use cases have been
    considered in the ongoing CMS publishing/versioning redesign

11) Various MetaForm modifications/enhancements to deal with specific
    RHCMS authoring kit use cases. I'm not sure if this sort of thing
    would be appropriate as-is for checkin on the trunk

12) Picklist object types, classes, and UI: Developed a general
    framework for handling simple picklists of strings. This might be
    generally useful for other projects.

13) Link class for managing links from content items to either other
    content items or external sites. Has already been refactored along
    with DP link functionality into the content-types package for a
    new Link content type.

14) UI for item-item association searching. Has already been
    refactored and integrated into the trunk.

15) Enhanced UI for handling folder permissions so that customizing
    doesn't lose the initial defaults. this has already been integrated.

16) Modified /permissions UI to allow granting of site-wide admin
    permissions. Some variant of this would be appropriate to check
    in, but the RHCMS implementation was done more as a one-off and
    would need a better redesign for checking into the trunk.

17) Workflow notifications and folder-based workflow watches
    implemented. I think some variant of this functionality has
    already been added to cms.

18) "Publish all" functionality which publishes all items within a
    folder or subfolders without regard to workflow. This is probably
    not a desirable feature to add by default, although there has been
    at least one request for this feature apart from redhat.com
