Multilanguage support


At this moment, this plugin does not support TFS in another language than english.
For example, in a french TFS, it search for "Child" instead of "Enfant" to find child links.

To use TFSAggregator with non english TFS you need to modify of source code (a little bit).

You can modify "WorkItemHelper.cs" file:
  • GetParentFromListOrStore
  • GetChildrenFromListOrStore
    Replace "Child" and "Parent" strings by new values.
And If you want use string aggregation through field "System.State" modify functions below:
Replace "State" string to your local name of System.State field.

Yes :)
I submitted this issue just to add a patch after :)
You can find an updated WorkItemHelper.cs in patchs who support multilanguage (only for aggregation yet).

But after some more investigation, I found that there are a lot more problems in this plugin.

For example, the Divide aggregation operator always return 0 because it work like this :

target = 0
target = target {operator} source1
target = target {operator} source2

so, the Divide operator will perform like 0 / X / X = 0.

Same for substract : you want to substract value 1 to value 2. For example 5 and 2 = 3.
But what appends is 0 - 5 - 2 = -7

I am changing the code to improve aggregation and adding some others operators. I'll probably add another patch for theses issues. But not sure because I am adding some others personnal preferences to it.
