Forum OpenACS Development: Re: OpenACS 5.9 Bug in /admin/group-types/

Posted by Frank Bergmann on
Hi Gustaf,

Just updating acs-subsite/www/admin/groups and group-types didn't change anything.

After exchanging all acs-* packages with packages from your 5.9.1.b3 I get: "invalid command name "ns_parseurl".
I'm already running NaviServer 4.99.8.

I've seen that the diff of acs-subsite from 5.9.0 is already > 3.000 lines. I don't have a good feeling with this. I believe I already announced that we are going to be very conservatives with OpenACS and nsd upgrades in ]po[ from now on. So I assume we'll re-implement group administration in ]po[ now and ignore OpenACS.

Thanks anyway,

cherry-picking changes is not a good idea - i was just hoping that this error fixes the 5.9.0 issue. .... however - it looks to me as of there is no issue with the code you are sketching: i have just installed a fresh version of OpenACS 5.9.0, and the issue DOES NOT show up the group "Test" can be created without problems!


btw: not sure, how you messed to upgrade: If one does a proper upgrade of acs-core, there won't be a problem with ns_parseurl since there is an emulation of it for AOLserver in the code [1].

Thanks a lot!!

> upgrade

I did this upgrade on Linux, and it was NaviServer... Also on Windows it's NaviServer now - I need to keep both versions as close as possible...

But what do you think about a "LTS" long-term support version of OpenACS? Do you think that's feasible?
