to include 'several major improvements the Tcl library, memory
management, and overall performance'.
I'm curious as to why OpenACS installations use patched versions of
AOLserver rather than the stock code. From reading various threads I
gather that this relates to internationalization code (I18n) and maybe
some memory leak fixes for older versions of AOLserver.
Are these guesses correct?
Is there any chance of the OpenACS-related patches being merged into
the main AOLserver code? I see that a set of such patches has been on
the AOLserver site since June and is still assigned to nobody.
If the AOLserver team won't accept OpenACS-related patches, what would
be required to modify the patches so that AOLserver 3.5 can be used
with OpenACS? Does anyone know if this would be worthwhile? (I would
guess not, since it's a new release and people have been busy with
getting 4.6 ready.)
