Requesting customer feedback on removing RCS files in subdirectories feature

2008-03-04 - 07:05:03 by KennethLavrsen in General
The TWiki development team asks for customer feedback for the following proposal.

TWiki has a documented feature that allows the admin to setup TWiki at installation so that the revision control file (the files that ends with ,v) are placed in subdirectories.

We have received the first and only bug report that says it does not work. The reason for the feature was to allow twice the number of topics in a web but we are not sure any longer that the feature really gives the needed performance boost.

We now need to decide if we fix the feature or remove it. Unless we hear from customers that need it we intend to remove it from TWiki 5.0 (assumed release in 2009). Upgraders that use the feature (if it ever worked) can upgrade by simply moving all the ,v files back in the same directory where the .txt files are stored.

We have raised a proposal topic DeprecateRcsDirectoriesFeature

Please feel free to voice your concern there. If we hear from customers that need the feature we will not deprecate it but try to fix it instead.
