  • Time to first response: Average time (in hours) of the first response to new topics:

C hat rooms

  • “How to properly shutdown coolwsd, sending a SIGTERM at the moment, but JailUtil.cpp:removeJail() function doesn’t seem to be called during the shutdown.”,
    • [ ] WRN Prisoner connection disconnected but without valid socket.| wsd/COOLWSD.cpp:2365
    • [ ] ERR Failed to remove [/var/db/collaboraonline/child-roots/bndIp93Nj8SLgOf0] only: File not found| common/FileUtil.cpp:286
    • Vmiklos: coolwsd.service explicitly sends a SIGINT, probably you should do the same :slight_smile:
    • sending SIGINT gives the same result.
    • The cleanup procedure removes stuff from child-roots/ recursively. If name of the jail goes after “tmp”, things work, otherwise fail. Now the question is how to fix this properly.

Thanks to New contributors:

    • First I would like to have everything in CSS vars and then we can keep going on that direction
    • Context top toolbars
      • Andreas: The PR is a redesign for how the whole context toolbar
      • Andreas: I think the animation (slow) can be fixed if we do not redraw it
      • Andreas: maybe better to do smaller steps
      • Michael: every time we animate we potential stop to talk with the web socket. Wrong interactivity problems, etc.
    • Mobile bottom context toolbar on Writer: Using table: we missing the split cell → Pedro will open issue
