TWiki 4.0.2 release

  • Desired outcome: Remaining tasks and release timing of TWikiRelease04x00x02
  • Bug status: Requirement: 5, Urgent: 5, Normal: 35, Low: 16
  • Problem at the moment is that more bugs are opened than closed. Because people think Edinburgh more than getting Dakar stable.
  • It is good to have as many "normal" items fixed as possible.
  • Discussion on marking items
    • Try to mark as 4.0.2 requirement up front, not at fix time

Short summary on which bugs are 4.0.2 crucial and which are targeted at Edinburgh:

Item Summary Action
Bugs:Item1605 RCS (cygwin) or twiki apply permission on file with READ and not WRITE No developers are currently using this setup, can't reproduce. Not a blocker for 4.0.2.
Bugs:Item1610 Configure script corrupts NameFilter? (Unmatched Bracket in Regex) Blocker. CDot takes a look.
Bugs:Item450 View requires %TEXT% to be in template. Edinburgh only.
Bugs:Item1576 Saving topic often fails when mod_perl is enabled. Not reproducible yet, CDot has 6 installations with out the error.
Bugs:Item1629 Patchfile for TWiki 4x0x1 renders my installation unusable Action item for Sven: Decide whether this is related to the offered file or the procedure executed by the reporter.
Bugs:Item1682 Need a way to modify permissions Edinburgh.
Bugs:Item1560   4.0.2
Bugs:Item602   Edinburgh
Bugs:Item548   Edinburgh
Bugs:Item1634   4.0.2
Bugs:Item1349   Edinburgh
Bugs:Item1670   Edinburgh
Bugs:Item1649   4.0.2
Bugs:Item1682   Edinburgh
Bugs:Item1684   Edinburgh

The only items that will be merged over for 4.0.2 are the ticked items - and even then, only the ones that merge relativly cleanly.

Timeline, 4.0.2

"When it's done, it's done" vs. "If there isn't a deadline, the work will fill the remaining space and time continuum".

Decided on a two week timeframe, allowing for the new div-based PatternSkin to finish and stabilize.

  • Desired outcome: Agree on tentative release focus
  • Brainstorm on EdinburghRelease#Release_Focus

-- LynnwoodBrown - 27 Feb 2006


  • wbniv has fixed the tinderbox and install scripts to be up to date, and would like to deploy it.
  • Can't be done at the moment, develop.twiki.org can't handle the load, and it's impossible to synch the SVN repository to a machine located elsewhere to run the tinderbox off a local SVN there (see IRC log for details).
