What's your story?


#1

I’ve justed added a new ‘UserStory’ ticket type in the typo trac. We
want your stories of how you want typo to behave. Keep 'em short and
pithy and name them well.

A User Story is a couple of paragraphs or so describing some desired
behaviour of Typo, ideally headed by a descriptive title. In ‘heavy’
development circles they call 'em Use Cases and fence 'em in with an
ungodly amount of ceremony. But we’re Agile, dammit, so we call them
Stories and have done with it!

How to write your stories

  1. Think about something you want to do with typo, or something that
    typo could do in a better way.
  2. Describe how it should be done.
  3. Give it a good title.
  4. Stick it on the trac.

A few writing guidelines:

  • Don’t worry about implementation, that comes later. How should it
    work in a perfect world?
  • Try and keep it short. If it’s big, break it down into smaller
    stories, each describing a simple interaction.
    • If they’re not particularly clear by themselves, you can link them
      together by
      adding a context section with a pointer to the preceding story and
      (possibly) a ‘leads to’ section that points to the next stage(s).
    • In extreme cases, write your story as wiki pages and link to them
      from
      a UserStory ticket.
  • Don’t worry about justifying your story in the story itself; add a
    comment to your ticket with any justification you think is
    necessary.
  • Enjoy yourself.

I’m looking for stories on comment and trackback spam prevention,
authoring workflow, theming, sidebar writing. Anything Typo related
really.

Knock yourselves out.

I didn’t see this in the bugs, and it’s pretty small, but I had an
article that I couldn’t think of a name for, so I named it ‘???’
(without the quotes) and the article shows up, but if you click on the
title it never takes you to the article’s page, thus you can’t leave
comments.

I simply renamed the title, and everything was peachy - so kinda a silly
bug, but that’s how allot of em are.

Is the link to /articles/2006/04/01/???, or are the ?s URL-encoded?
