I've been working on the configure interface for the forthcoming Tasking Framework (formerly plugin garbage collection
), and will provide a couple of minor configure (UI) patches to make that work properly. Meantime:
The configure script, at line 698, produces a hover-tag that calls the user stupid
. This is unprofessional and has no place in an enterprise product.
Here's the problem area - note that the offensive text appears twice. The orange highlight is mine:
698 <li>The little <span class='twikiAlert' title="%ORANGE%<strong>Not here, stupid</strong>%ENDCOLOR%. In the table below!">δ</span> after an entry means that the current value is <b>not</b> the same as the default value. If you hover the cursor over the <span class='twikiAlert' title="<strong>%ORANGE%<strong>Not here, stupid. In the table below!</strong>%ENDCOLOR%</strong>">δ</span>, a popup will show you what the default value is.</li>
699 <li><b><font color="#f00">EXPERT</font></b> means a setting is for expert use only. You should not fiddle with it unless you know what you are doing, or at least have read all the documentation.
This appears in the Explanation of colours and symbols:
section at the top of the configure menu, when you hover over the "non-default" icon. It's certainly in 4.2.3 -- and in Trunk.
(Interesting that the WYSIWYG editor was happy to let me hightlight a verbatim area in bold/orange, but displays the markup after a save. This should also be fixed...
I absolutely agree, this text is unprofessional and arrogant, it needs to be changed. The TWiki community now operates much more customer focused than in the past, the arrogant folks are no longer with the community.
This is now fixed in SVN trunk and 5.0 branch. Thanks Timothe!
