Bug fix: StanleyKnutson sent this in Nov 2000:

I have some bug fixes since the 01dec2000 release [well, I actualy downloaded it on Nov 26].

I've attached the diffs as a text file.

bugs fixed in my version:

  • rcs errors during save now show up directly rather than being discarded (at least, problems reported to stderr) This makes most permission errors more obvious to the end user.

    The biggest particular problem I had was it would appear to work due to the working file being written, but in fact no checkin occurred since the ,v was owned by some user. Sometimes the 'oopssave.tmpl' file being displayed when save was called properly and a different kind of error had really happened.

  • altered wikistore.pm always does a co -l before trying to check things in. This helps avoid permission issues that can otherwise happen and cause problems. (for example, if a user explicitly checked in a new version from their own account, not via the twiki scripts)

  • altered oopssave.tmpl since that screen can appear when save is called properly but an error occurs.

I added all changes but the co -l before check in. I did not add this for performance reasons.

Commited to TWikiAlphaRelease, and made a TWikiBetaRelease.

Could you attach the fixes to this page as a text file? I'd like to try them out.

Alternatively, if there's an easy way to get it out of CVS, please let me know. Would I just need to grab wikistore.pm and oopssave.tmpl?
