#1623 enhancement dread dread ckan-sprint-2012-01-23 closed fixed Dump to exclude deleted objects

The database dump currently contains all Packages and their associated objects, even those that have been set to state=deleted. We should exclude these from the dump now.

Dump = paster db simple-dump-csv/json


The dumps are designed for end-users to be able to run scripts on the mass of data. Since end-users don't see state=deleted packages then they shouldn't need them in the dump. In fact their presence in the dump probably confuses them.

Admins get the full database anyway in the backup pg_dump.

We only included them in the user dump because it was designed before use of state=deleted was established.

Time estimate: 2h

#1625 enhancement seanh seanh ckan-sprint-2012-01-23 closed fixed Add activity stream events for new/changed users

This requires adding a logic function for emitting an activity stream event, and then editing the logic functions for creating or updating users and making them call the new emit event function. This same emit event function can later be used to emit activity stream events for other types of object as well.

The text should be changed to be both specific to thedatahub.org and provide the context in a non-technical way. It should be easy to customise the About page to be appropriate for say new-york.ckan.net - a bit of info about who runs it, plus the general stuff about CKAN powering it and it was written by OKF to further open data.

This is a fairly big feature to add. Analysis: http://ckan.okfnpad.org/27

This ticket is related to #1635 (email notifications for activity streams) which is about managing a list of activity streams for which the user receives email notifications. There are decisions to be made about how the two will work together.

#1635 enhancement seanh seanh ckan-backlog new Email notifications (e.g. for activity streams)

CKAN should be able to send email notifications to users.

Maybe have a notifications table in the db, and a server-side job that runs periodically and consumes rows from this table, mailing them to the users.

One thing that we may want to send users notifications of is activity stream events. So the activity streams code would have to add rows to the notifications table for the mailer job to consume. But remember that email notifications feature is separate from activity streams - we may want to send notifications of other things as well.

Need to implement (at least some of) #1634 before this can be implemented, in order to have something to send notifications about.

Analysis here: http://ckan.okfnpad.org/27

#1639 enhancement seanh seanh ckan-sprint-2012-02-06 closed fixed Move activity streams CSS into external file

The HTML and CSS for the activity streams templates needs to be tidied up. Currently the CSS is inlined in the templates themselves, and there is much unnecessary repetition of CSS.

Perhaps put this one in hold until there has been some design discussion about how the activity streams and the user, dataset and group pages with activity streams should look?

#1641 enhancement amercader amercader ckan-sprint-2012-01-23 closed fixed ckanext-archiver: Content-length header not reliable to check if resource has been modified

The download task in ckanext-archiver performs a HEAD request on the resource URL and checks if the "Content-Type" and "Content-Length" headers differ from the values stored to see if the resource needs to be updated [1].

The "Content-Length" header, although widely used, is not mandatory and some servers don't provide it, e.g.:

$ curl -I http://portfolio.theglobalfund.org/en/IATI/Activities?countryCode=AFG
HTTP/1.1 200 OK
Cache-Control: private
Transfer-Encoding: chunked
Content-Type: text/xml
Vary: Accept-Encoding
Server: Microsoft-IIS/7.5
Set-Cookie: ASP.NET_SessionId=3qhqekddgmre0kmk5cynq0sy; path=/; HttpOnly
X-AspNetMvc-Version: 3.0
content-disposition: attachment; filename=AFG_IATI_12012012.xml
X-AspNet-Version: 4.0.30319
X-Powered-By: ASP.NET
Date: Thu, 12 Jan 2012 12:36:43 GMT

Also worth noting that requests, the python library that uses ckanext-archiver, sets an "Accept-Encoding: gzip" header by default, which depending on the configuration of the remote web server, may prevent the "Content-Length" server from being sent, e.g.:

$ curl -H "Accept-Encoding: gzip" -I http://iatistandard.org/published-temp/adb-activities.xml
HTTP/1.1 200 OK
Date: Thu, 12 Jan 2012 12:12:46 GMT
Server: Apache
Last-Modified: Mon, 28 Nov 2011 15:55:35 GMT
Accept-Ranges: bytes
Vary: Accept-Encoding
Content-Encoding: gzip
Content-Type: application/xml

curl -I http://iatistandard.org/published-temp/adb-activities.xml
HTTP/1.1 200 OK
Date: Thu, 12 Jan 2012 11:56:23 GMT
Server: Apache
Last-Modified: Mon, 28 Nov 2011 15:55:35 GMT
Accept-Ranges: bytes
Content-Length: 2686720
Vary: Accept-Encoding
Content-Type: application/xml

All this can lead to some resources never getting updated, and of course the size property of the resource not being set.

As we need to download the resource anyway, it would be better to check if the real length of the data has been modified (and store it).

#1651 enhancement johnglover dread closed fixed Explicit link mapper

In this commit https://github.com/okfn/ckan/commit/1772a5c John Glover set map.explicit=True in ckan/config/routing.py.

The reason this was done was to avoid links collecting parameters. e.g. if you were on page /dataset/{id}/resource/{resource_id} then by default all the links on that page generated by url_for (Routes) would include the id and resource_id parameters as well. To avoid this, you had to go through all the links and add id=None and resource_id=None to the url_for parameters.

When map.explicit was changed to True, the value of the controller, action, id and any parameters were no longer automatically carried over into the generated links for the page. So previously links within the same controller didn't need to specify the controller (for example), but now they did. So when we did this we also had to fix up links that weren't explicit:

John made the config change on 5/11/2011 which was merged to master https://github.com/okfn/ckan/commit/5a01e67 21/11/2011. The related fixes mentioned were in within the same week. This all went into release 1.5.1. The requirement

#1659 defect dread dread ckan-sprint-2012-01-23 closed fixed Cannot logout if CKAN mounted at non-root url

If you set WSGIScriptAlias to mount CKAN at a URL other than / then you cannot logout without adjusting the OpenID logged_out_url to match in who.ini config. e.g.

[plugin:openid] ... logged_out_url = /sub/dir/user/logged_out

Note: all the other URLs in who.ini should not have the /sub/dir/ - it is just this one that doesn't take account of the mounting point.

The solution is to fix-up the repoze.who OpenID plugin to take account of the mounting point.

We already have simple activity streams for groups that have new group or group updated events (see #1631). Smarter/more useful group activity streams would also contain the events for things related to the group: users, datasets, other groups, etc.

This should just mean using a more complex SQL query in the group_activity_list() logic function.

Things might get tricky when a user or dataset joins a group, this may show up as two events (the user or dataset was modified, and the group was modified). We may want to have two separate events for this (one to go in the user or dataset activity stream and one for the group), or maybe we just want one 'user/dataset joined group' event.

We get a test failure [1] with the 1.0b3 version (from the ubuntu 10.04 python-repoze.who-plugins package). But we've not noticed any problems on s057 instances (br, no, ie etc) which have the package versions of repoze.who.

The reason the package install uses the earlier packaged versions rather than the ones we'd like is that repoze uses all sorts of horrendous import hacks, making it too difficult to put into our 'ckan-conflict' source package.

James suggests we 'do something horrible like dynamically patch repoze on CKAN import'.

#1679 enhancement dread ckan-backlog new Default roles problem

The 'editor', 'anon_editor' and 'reader' roles are intended to have immutable actions. This was designed to prevent their names being subverted - e.g. an editor should always be able to edit! It also meant that when we add Actions (e.g. DELETE-PACKAGE) then it can be added sensibly to these roles in an upgrade just by changing the defaults table (ckan/model/authz.py).

The problem is that this immutability is only enforced on 'db upgrade'. So you can happily change the editor role using the paster command and it works, right up until you do an upgrade and realise permissions are different.

We should stop the paster commands being able to edit these roles. Or get rid of the immutability completely. Views?

#1710 enhancement dread dread ckan-sprint-2012-02-06 closed fixed 'Announce' email list for thedatahub

We want to make email announcements to users of thedatahub.org.

The most simple way to do this is to get a dump of the email addresses and subscribe/invite them to a mailman list.

Different ways to do it:

  • 'paster dump-users-csv' creates a CSV file. Apache serves up the directory using password protection. Is this secure enough?
  • CKAN admin pages provides a button to produce the CSV and download it. A config option may be necessary to enable this (disabled by default).

Something more advanced in the future could be:

  • CKAN tells mailman about new subscribers using the mailman web interface. Could be brittle.
  • Mailman doesn't have an Internet API, but it does have a python interface. So CKAN could tell mailman about new subscribers using a python proxy. There may be one out there, or maybe easy to do. But annoying to have to maintain another process running on machine.
  • CKAN sends out the emails itself. A sysadmin is given a form. Users have an opt in/out option in their account. But receiving emails is a sensitive thing so it would need to be right first time, and there are several risks to this approach.

  • The server checka each link for errors and header information about the linked resource. (Using ckanext/archiver/tasks.py:link_checker()).

  • The server returns a list of dicts (json), containing information about the linked resource, and the client uses that to:
  • populate the format field of each resource

The (guessed) 'file_extension' populates the 'format' field. If it's 'htm' or 'html', then we assume it's a listing page, and so don't populate the format field with 'htm' or 'html'.

  • provide feedback if a URL appears to be invalid

If the URL doesn't appear to be a URL at all, or returns a HTTP error, or times-out, then URL field is highlighted in red to indicate it's a bad URL. A tooltip shows the error message to the user.

  • [Optional] provide feedback if a URL appears to point to "Additional Information" - ie the Resource should be entered under "Additional Resources", rather than "Timeseries" or "Individual" datasets.

  1. Make it possible to view full list of tags, formats and groups by clicking on the name. From here you should be table to click on a classification and go back to a search page faceted by that classification. E.g. from search page, click on 'tags', on tag page click on 'london' or whatever, and be navigated back to search page with search within 'london' tag only. Or y'know, a better way of doing it.
  1. More standard classifications, such as 'Location' and 'Theme' - like on publicdata.eu
  1. Blue search button should be displayed in line with the search bar, not underneath
  1. Datasets should be displayed in order of most viewed or downloaded instead of alphabetically. For alphabetic search we could consider adding a way to facet by first letter of dataset name
