CgiContrib Feedback and Development

-- Harald Jörg - 2015-10-28

Thank you Harald for contributing this useful extension! It will reduce some headaches when installing TWiki on newer OSes.

-- Peter Thoeny - 2015-10-28

Today I saw my first Debian Jessie, with Perl 5.20, bundled with CGI 4.09. With CgiContrib, TWiki was supposed to override the system's CGI library, which works for most of TWiki, but it doesn't work not for configure.

In TWiki 6.0.1, the configure script does not read setlib.cfg before trying to use CGI, therefore it catches the "bad" system version 4.09 before TWiki's own libraries get precedence, and breaks with the notorious CGI::param called in list context.

So, Peter's change to configure in November, contained in 6.0.2, is required for Debian Jessie. TWiki 6.0.1 will not work, not even with CgiContrib installed.

I think this should be noted in KnownIssuesOfTWiki06x00, so that Debian users upgrade their TWiki before they switch over to Jessie.
