This is a list where the JSPWiki developers or contributors will post RFC's, "Request for Code". It's stuff we're going to implement at some point, but we haven't yet found the time to do.  If you just have an [idea], or a [bug report], then please check out those pages instead.

!! Pages with Open Requests to ~HelpWanted are:

[{ReferringPagesPlugin WHERE max=99, maxwidth=300 before='#' after='\n'}]


!ReferenceManager persistence

JSPWiki startup is slow, because we need to scan through all of the pages to check out the links. Unfortunately, if the PageProvider is slow, then this will take a fair amount of time.

We need to do some sort of a "lazy init with persistence", i.e. make the ReferenceManager to save it's contents to a persistent storage at shutdown, and make it load it again at startup.  Then it would go through the pages, and update the contents either lazily (on demand), or as a separate thread in the background.

A solution that does not depend on a 1.5 Megabyte persistence library and a zillion configuration options would be preferred; keep it simple and the download size small.

Requirement #2: ReferenceManager must be able to survive if someone changes a page externally.

Suggestion #3: It might a good idea to make ReferenceManager use the new PageFilters subsystem; it's cleaner that way than to force the scanWikiLinks() separately.

;: Has this already been implemented? I know that there's a refmgr.ser file generated by JSPWiki.. --DavidAu, 02-Apr-2007
