Forum OpenACS Q&A: Why the 'bookself' package isn't included in the oacs final 4.6.3 version?
Somebody could tell me which the reason?
It appears to be only available in the CVS.
I guess bookshelf hasn't been accepted as a part of the OACS package yet. IIRC there's a tendence not to take many new packages in the "distribution", but to give an option to download them separately from openacs.org. I think Peter is collecting a list of all packages and this list with download links should become available at the site if it isn't already there. I agree that at the moment it's a bit hard to find available packages for people not familiar with CVS.
OpenACS 4.6.x does not support internationalisation, so FAQ (nor any other package) distributed in 4.6.3 tarball can't be an i18nized one either.
If you want to be able to use different languages than English or i18nize existing packages, you have to checkout the code from CVS head. Instructions are available here: https://openacs.org/4/checkout
I think head should be fairly stable at the moment. Note that you'll need tdom in order to use it, though.
cvs server: cannot find module `bookshelf' - ignored
when I try to check it out from either 4.6.3 or head.
It doesn't seem to be part of the 4.6.3 final tag, but I was able to check it out from the head using:
cvs -d:pserver:mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org:/cvsroot checkout openacs-4/packages/bookshelf
Hope that helps...
