Bug: Use %HOMETOPIC% not WebHome

In the supplied TWiki docs, all references to WebHome should refer to %HOMETOPIC%, in order to be consistent with user settings, to avoid confusing end users. With a default TWiki install the number of instances the word "WebHome" is used is significantly > 0.

How to Fix

Needs to be applied just the once probably, preferably by someone with admin rights smile

# grep -i WebHome */*|cut -d: -f1|while read i; do mv $i $i.old; sed -e "s/WebHome/%HOMETOPIC%/g" $i.old >$i; rm $i.old; done

It could be done manually if necessary of course...

Test case

# mkdir unpack
# cd unpack
# tar zxvf ../$TWIKITARBALL 
# cd data
# grep WebHome */* |wc -l

This should come back with 0 on a "just installed" TWiki Server, if the docs are to be consistent with user settings (and hence not confuse users).

Not strictly speaking a patch, but provides a script/commandline as to how to fix this.

Fix record

I went for the manual fix for two reasons. I do not have root access at SF to run the script with the proper user and there is meta data with parent pointing to WebHome. Changing the parent to the variable needs to be tested, e.g. there might be some issues.
