Forum OpenACS Development: acs-kernel DDL
Keep in mind that we're planning to target PG 7.1, not PG 7.0, for ACS 4.0. PG 7.1 is far enough along that you should be able to build a reasonably stable version. If I successfully get my workstation rebuilt before the weekend I'm going to try to build a version. If I can get OpenACS 3.2 to run on it successfully, I'll try to put together a tar file we can use (since the CVS tip often gets broken for a day or so at a time) until PG 7.1 betas.
Of course, if you have time to do the same before this weekend, you're more than welcome to do so! Much more than welcome, actually ...
Anyway, I think we need a semi-stable copy of PG 7.1 to start playing with. No need to restrict our port to PG 7.0-isms with PG 7.1 so near .
Tim Perdue's already gotten SourceForge up on a test system using PG 7.1 pre-beta, as you've probably seen if you chased the link in the news article I posted.
If you take advantage of the oop features of postgres, that will make
it nonportable to other databases (read: bigtime fork)...
I don't much like the idea of having to use oracle, but why limit
future porting choices?
