Forum OpenACS Q&A: Re: Bugtracker performance problems

Posted by Malte Sussdorff on
Some more thinking behind my reasoning for the rewrite using categories, but probably Dave is right and we will see no performance gain.

Bug tracker contains a lot of code to handle categories in a hierarchical manner, if we'd use category system, we could just reuse the functions written therein. Furthermore, it would be a good reason to integrate categories with listbuilder (unless it is already done), meaning, you can map multiple category trees to a package and the listbuilder would display them automatically like the bug-tracker currently does manually.

Last but not least, it would allow us to use multiple categories within one tree, something that would break the current bug-tracker. Useful if a bug e.g. belongs to more than one package.
