Bonsoir, Hi!

>Do you think we will manage to fix all the current bugs
>in the 10 next days ?

Nope but I agree with Marc: the "zero-bug-target" will just mean to never
release a plain new revision.

>What are the most important show-stoppers for the moment ?

I can't imagine a way to trully fix the bug with binary fields as I've
already wrote
in my previous mail. So it's not a show-stoppers IMHO, as soon as we achive
a work-around in the case when cfgProtectBlob is TRUE.

The bug #448223 (Dump hangs) is really annoying. I'm not sure it's trully a
bug (maybe only a set_time_limit problem) but I don't have big enough
databases to face it.
Maybe we should also have a look at this suggestion:
It's a really nice improvement that should not require too much work.

I'm currently working on the bug #450255 (new javascript error with
netscape3) and then will work on the second bug from bug report #449817
(2 bug in db_details.php). Witha bit of luck, these ones would be fixed
a few days.

One thing that may be done before releasing: when you submit a query from a
query box, the script always returns to 'db_details.php3' even if this query
were in 'tbl_properties.php3'. Not so nice and maybe easy to fix.
This also means to return back to 'db_details.php3' if the current table has
been dropped and to 'main.php3' if the current database has been dropped
(I've already done this stuff and am testing it).

Another similiar problem I've faced today: in advanced mode, if one db that
do not exist is associated to the user, this db name is nevertheless set
the $dblib array (see lib.inc.php3, lines 194-197: nowhere the existence of
the db is tested) and then this cause many problems all over the scripts.

But the main show-stoppers is the user administration pages: I can't find
enough contigous time to rewrite it according to our standards, take care
of the js validity and remove the htmlspecialchars problems :(

...and with magic_quote_gpc set to 'on' and 'off' ;)
