Feature #1895

Do not auto create repo if Repository module is not enabled

Another suggestion from my end that I think would be great. What I use now is auto_create: force since I only use SVN as a repo type. In this case repo is created even if Repository module is not enabled on project creation. I think a condition to auto create a repo only if Repository module is enabled would be OK. What do you think?

Moved :view_projects_form content to views, hiding SCM when Repository is not checked (fixes #1895)

I would also suggest for project creation page in case of auto_create: true to show SCM drop-down only if Repository module is selected. Otherwise it could be hidden.

Thought a little bit more about the issue... auto_create: force is designed to force creation of repositories for all projects! That is in this case it’s better to auto check “Repository” module. If one wants repositories to be optional he/she should use auto_create: true instead...

What do you think?

P.S. Attached patch for making what you want...

Did as you requested... Changed my mind! I think you were right.

The only issue regarding this is that if you select SCM and uncheck Repository the repository will be not created silently...

Hiding “SCM” if Repository module is not checked. Thanks Blaž!
