Gist visibility update?

When I edit an existing public gist entry, it always turns into a private gist without any indications. And there seems no way to change the visibility of gists from private to public. Is this an intended behavior?

Confirmed with my own RhodeCode CE 4.3.1 installation and

How to reproduce:

  1. Sign in to
  2. Open
  3. Fill anything in the body and push "Create Public Gist" button.
  4. Push "Edit" button.
  5. Push "Update Gist" button.

Expected result:

  • The gist entry should remain public.

Actual result:

  • The gist entry turns into "Private Gist".

    Hi, thanks for the fix! I've confirmed the issue got handled in 4.4.1.

    I also wanted to confirm some details of RhodeCode Gists... are my assumptions in the following correct and intended?

    • Users cannot change the visibility (public / private) of existing gists
    • Users cannot specify arbitrary gist id on public gists (only sequencial numbers are allowed)
    • Users cannot change that arbitrary gist id of existing gists

    Actually any of them are not a big problem and OK to me, but it would be nice to have it explained in the documentation.

    Thanks again for the clarification. Now this question could be closed satisfactorily.

    Hope my English becomes good enough to contribute to docs some day, but for now I'd rather make the effort on Japanese translations to support our local use of RhodeCode in the team. I've joined and been working for these days, looking forward to seeing new translations reviewed and merged into the mainline.
