Forum OpenACS Development: Re: Massive commit to HEAD about to happen

Posted by Mohan Pakkurti on
Is it possible that we can get HEAD on OACS and .LRN to a stable point and then tag it, before proceeding further? By stable I mean, that one can install and use OpenACS/.LRN from HEAD.

Thanks so much!

Ok, this may be obvious, but note that there is a fundamental difference between Head being "unstable" in the sense of being incomplete, buggy, and needing work, vs. Head being "unstable" in the sense that's it's so broken that you can't even install it at all. The later state makes working on and improving Head rather more difficult...

When Mohan asked for a CVS tag on a "stable point" on Head, I suspect he probably meant the first state described above - still "unstable", needing work, and incomplete, but installable, not broken.

(The rest of what everybody else said sounds fine of course, I just felt like pointing out the above...)
