Problem with ChartPlugin triggering notifications

Hi,

I have found that when a page uses a graph plugin the .changes file is updated and notifications are sent purely on the basis of someone having viewed the page:

In the events.log I get

2012-08-24T15:28:52Z info neil_mckett upload MiscDiskSpace _ChartPlugin_area_Total.png, dontlog MSIE 7 10.65.4.234
2012-08-24T15:28:52Z info neil_mckett upload MiscDiskSpace _ChartPlugin_area_0.png, dontlog MSIE 7 10.65.4.234
2012-08-24T15:28:52Z info neil_mckett upload MiscDiskSpace _ChartPlugin_area_30_BE.png, dontlog MSIE 7 10.65.4.234
2012-08-24T15:28:52Z info neil_mckett upload MiscDiskSpace _ChartPlugin_area_0_BE.png, dontlog MSIE 7 10.65.4.234
2012-08-24T15:28:52Z info neil_mckett upload MiscDiskSpace _ChartPlugin_area_30_FE.png, dontlog MSIE 7 10.65.4.234
2012-08-24T15:28:52Z info neil_mckett upload MiscDiskSpace _ChartPlugin_area_0_FE.png, dontlog MSIE 7 10.65.4.234

In the output from mailnotify I get

Processing STiXXXX

Is there some option I need to set somewhere to filter out these notifcations?

The web stats are okay so the filtering is working there.

Thanks.

Best Wishes

Neil

I'm seeing this same issue. It results in people getting mail notifications as well for pages with the chart plugin. Is there any way to filter the notification or turn this behavior off? I'm guessing it is because the plugin uses the foswiki api to attach the file. Is there an option to have the plugin just put the file there directly? There should be no need to version control these dynamically generated graphs.

Looking through the source code for the plugin I found that the code does set the notopicchange flag which is described at:

notopicchange Set to true to prevent this upload being recorded in the meta-data of the topic.
So is this possibly a but in the mailnotify contrib that still see this as a change? Or a bug in foswiki that records this as a change?
