Fossil's chroot feature drops root permissions based on file ownership, but since the container was built with everything-root, its HTTP hit handling children would run as whatever host-side UID/GID pair you used for file ownership. What happened next was complex.

If you let the container create the repo internally, it would be owned as root, so it would drop root permissions for…root! This isn't super-bad, since Fossil is presumed secure and is double-jailed besides. The risk is, if anyone works out an RCE for Fossil, they might be able to get it to create raw sockets or do various other types of escapes despite the double-jail dance.

Attaching a Docker volume brings external permisssions into the container. We were recommending a "chown 0" command on the shared volume to make it similar to the in-container case, but that opens you to the same risks above. If you ignored this and used host-side UID/GID pairs, Fossil would then be left running under IDs that didn't exist internally, which could cause assorted weirdness.

We're now creating an explicit "fossil" user/group pair inside the container and recommending that Docker volumes use these IDs for copied-in files to batten down something that shouldn't've been left flapping.

Updated build.wiki to cover all this. ... (check-in: ba21bc0b user: wyoung tags: trunk)

Moved the SIGTERM handler up before the "fossil server" HTTP hit handler. We had it clustered with the other signal() calls, but those are to handle signals intended to occur only during CGI processing. This one will normally occur while we're blocked, waiting for the HTTP hit to occur, so it had no useful effect where it was. ... (check-in: d3c55fe0 user: wyoung tags: trunk)

Changed previous to call fossil_exit() instead of exit(3) so we close our databases before dying. ... (check-in: 7c857d22 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
17:59
The parent process now handles SIGTERM with an explicit exit(3) call when its PID is 1, as when it's running as "fossil server" in a Docker container. Without this, the container host's shutdown process takes a long time because it's waiting on PID 1 to die and eventually has to time out and kill it. ...

Using the preceding --chroot fixes to make the Docker container serve the repo from /jail/museum/repo.fossil rather than from the chroot dir, /jail. This then allows us to mount a Docker volume at /jail/museum, which has an independent persistence from the container proper, so we can now rebuild the container without destroying the presumably precious repo. Updated build.wiki to track this change and document the lessons gleaned from doing all of this. ... (check-in: f76e762f user: wyoung tags: trunk)
22:15
Moved the chdir() call within enter_chroot_jail() down below the new repo name canonicalization code to allow use of relative path names.

Moved the setting of g.fJail flag into the repo = "/" case since it exists only to communicate the chroot status to --repolist mode.

Another attempt to make the CSS for the focus indicator work with any skin foreground and background colors and branch colors: instead of changing just the background color, the foreground color is also adjusted, so the indicator can still be recognized even if similar to a branch color. Besides, no more editing of SVG code is necessary to make adjustments. ... (check-in: a8d306be user: florian tags: timeline-keyboard-navigation)

Swap semantics of the "primary" and "secondary" highlighted entries to improve selection of the default focused entry. The "secondary" corresponds to the "To:" entry on /vdiff pages and hance is the last focused entry, so should also be the default when returning to /timeline both by keyboard shortcut or the browser "backwards" command. Thanks @rouilj for spotting this! ... (check-in: 63c1be8c user: florian tags: timeline-keyboard-navigation)
05:57
Shortcut "." (period) to set focus to the entry closest to the center of the viewport.

Did away with the temporary src.tar.gz file in the new Docker container by streaming the output of wget straight into tar's stdin. This cuts the build time by about five seconds, presumably due to the saving from unnecessary file I/O. Also replaced the explicit "cd src" afterward with an out-of-tree build configuration, since it doesn't matter if we clutter the first stage's /tmp dir. ...

Replaced Jan Nijtman's Dockerfile with a new one that does a 2-stage build. The first stage runs atop Alpine Linux instead of Fedora, reducing the initial build from ~635 MiB to about 16.

Rather than stop there, I then made it multi-stage, copying two key static binaries — Fossil and Busybox — over from the first stage into a fresh-from-scratch container and set it up to run the former jailed away from the latter.

The result is under 9 MiB, and it's as secure as one can hope, given that it starts up in "PUBLIC" mode. The new build doesn't have all the extra features turned on that the old one did, but it seems right to build the container with Fossil in its default configuration. If you want something else, copy the Dockerfile, hack it, and make it do what you want instead.

Having done all this, I replaced the one-off Dockerfile inline in section 5.0 of the build doc with a reference to this new Dockerfile and rewrote the section in terms of the new capabilities.

Finally, this lets us brag on how small the container can be, as compared to the Gitlab-CE container. Before, we were comparing a standalone binary to the container, which wan't entirely fair. (The desire to produce such a container was the spark that kicked this project off.) ... (check-in: 77d603c6 user: wyoung tags: trunk)

Remove some unnecessary `bind()' calls for variables already held in function closure. Apart from that, the approach seems to work well and also covers odd cases, such as the post-expansion timeout to clear maxHeight being shorter than the CSS animation duration (in which case the animation would just jerkily stop, but with the correct element height), or setting a short "decoy value" (say, "100px") instead of the real scrollHeight for maxHeight (in which case the animated area would just be smaller, but with the same end result). ... (check-in: 7b8dd9ca user: florian tags: accordion-fix)

05:23
Attempt to fix the accordion for "Changes" sections: (A) "Delay-init" the maxHeight property only right before the closing animation, so that the dynamic diffs have enough time to resize themselves without any constraints, and then set maxHeight to zero to trigger the animation in idle time, to prevent coalescing the maxHeight changes (or there won't be an animation when going from "undefined" to "0"). (B) On expansion, after awaiting the animation duration, clear the maxHeight property, so browsers are again free to resize without any constraints. This is the same trick that works well for the hamburger menu, and fixes another problem with FF to return too small values for scrollHeight with large diffs, so that they would again be truncated (but the error is small enough so it doesn't matter for the animation). ...

11:42
Try to fix the focus indicator CSS to work for all skins: alpha-blending "10% black" with light-mode background colors, or "20% white" with dark-mode background colors, looks surprisingly well and conflicts less with branch colors (which can be orange-ish, but never black or white). Note that the dark-mode skins Ardoise, Dark Mode and Xekri (but not Eagle) require the previously removed !important directive. It\'s still possible for skins to overwrite the focus indicator CSS when duplicating the !important directive. ... (check-in: 7d026886 user: florian tags: timeline-keyboard-navigation)
06:57
Experimental change to scroll the focused entry into view with a Fossil-style scrolling function to keep the entry centered vertically.
