A TODO list for GeneWeb. Any Help is welcome!

The open source project

  • import previous online documentation and images from

  • 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

  • Solve bugs related to gwu ( AND, which are "release critical", as they 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).
