A TODO list for GeneWeb. Any Help is welcome!

The open source project

  • import previous online documentation and images from
  • add what can be saved of old doc in other languages (at least main european lang de/sp/…)
  • (install Extension:Translate for an “automatic” translation of the wiki)
  • update syntax and link on pages
  • update pages content with incoming 7.0 
  • more illustrations
  • add HOW TO pages for GW compilation under Windows that can be tricky
  • add more doc for templm
  • expend FAQ with users problems on ML and forum
  • try to compile/setup a GeneWeb updated test base on Tuxfamily server (or somewher else) with edit right so people can play with GeneWeb without installing
  • advertise the new doc/wiki for 7.00 release !!
  • try to migrate the old Yahoo ML to Tuxfamily (to get rid of Yahoo spam banner…!, and own our ML!!)
  • install a phpBB multilang forum for GW endusers
  • make a ML on Tux for geneweb dev
  • give more details about the different Github repos and branches, see :
  • stay in contact with Debian and Ubuntu package maintainers and keep in mind the deadlines for the next major releases (,


  • better sosa htree rendering (links) or do it with CSS, add titles to graphs
  • finish work on tools, perhaps move back tools and other functions in menu for better accessibility
  • change how template/lang changing work to make individual page lighter

GeneWeb itself

  • Think about the strategy to follow for the "relations bug with gwu" (, which is "release critical", as it can cause data loss (impossibility to export clean .gw files for databases that use relations).
  • Recode permutations of event and implement the tool in templates.
  • compile with distrib and add option to generate connex.txt note automaticaly after import (see how it hepled a lot on Roglo)
  • see if extra generated line on dag hr (desc tree) can be removed without .js trick.
  • RELEASE 7.00 beta.
  • Rework bases tree for an easier to understand base archiving/backup process.
  • Find solution to manage better CSS/js files (not txt templates files), especially in CGI mode.
  • Get gwc2 working.
  • find camels and keep them working! :)
  • RELEASE 7.00.
  • maintain a rhythm for 7.xx releasing like it was in 6.xx (with updated changelog for people that can't compile Geneweb themselves).
