View as plain text  
Hi all,

my report is a little bit delayed, my great-grandfather had 90th 
birthday on friday. I hope I will reach this age too ;)

KEY ACCOMPLISHMENTS LAST WEEK
=============================

- Created an overview page for (un)tracked tables/views in a database. 
It gives a short status report of tracked tables/views and links to the 
"create version" page for untracked tables.

- A new grey-colored icon indicates whether a table has versions but 
deactive tracking status.

- Added handlers for CREATE/DROP INDEX, CREATE/ALTER/DROP VIEW.

- Auto-creation functionality implemented. It creates a version of new 
tables and views automatically.

- Some new config vars added. Here a short introduction:

// Creates tracking of new tables and views automatically. Default value 
is true.
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['tracking_version_auto_create'] = true|false

// Adds "DROP VIEW" statement as prefix of "CREATE VIEW" logs. Default 
value is true.
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['tracking_add_drop_view'] = true|false

// Adds "DROP TABLE" statement as prefix of "CREATE TABLE" logs. Default 
value is true.
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['tracking_add_drop_table'] = true|false

// Defines the statements which the auto-creation mechanism uses for new 
tracked versions.
// Default value is
// CREATE TABLE,ALTER TABLE,DROP TABLE,RENAME TABLE,
// CREATE INDEX,DROP INDEX,
// INSERT,UPDATE,DELETE,TRUNCATE,REPLACE,
// CREATE VIEW,ALTER VIEW,DROP VIEW,
// CREATE DATABASE,ALTER DATABASE,DROP DATABASE;

$cfg['Servers'][$i]['tracking_default_statements'] = ...

KEY TASKS THAT STALLED
======================
-

KEY CONCERNS
============
Finishing list of deliverables.


TASKS IN THE UPCOMING WEEK
==========================
- I want to focus on structure snapshots. The snapshot is saved in a php 
array. A user-friendly visualisation of it would be fine. Comparison of 
snapshots is an idea.

- Secondly I want to add an ouput of tracked CREATE/DROP/ALTER DATABASE 
statements to the "Tracking" overview page for databases.

- When time is left: start first phase of testing and evaluation. Try to 
get more feedback from users and developers.


Best regards

Alexander
