Forum OpenACS Q&A: CVS Version of 3.2.5

Posted by Chris Hardy on
Few questions here..

1) Is the CVS version of 3.2.5 still being housed at sourceforge?  I'm
installing OpenACS at my work (after much convincing took place) and
want to get the true up to date version.

2) If it the current version is being housed in 3.2.5 then there's
still some problems with postgres.sql (the postgres 7.1 beta4 rpms
have now changed the location of to /usr/lib

1. Yes, the CVS tree's your best bet, though an official 3.2.5 release  should appear in about two weeks (Roberto's doing bug fix integration  and testing this week).

2. You can do a "createlang plpgsql database_name" before running postgres.sql.  We should probably suggest users do that and make ourselves immune to " drift".

Minor Complaint here.. It seems like there haven't been a whole lot of cvs updates to the Sourceforge CVS tree. I've worked on the Intranet module in the past, and I'm gearing up to do some more work fixing some nasty bugs. I don't want to fix stuff that's already been fixed (intranet has like 11 open bugs in the sdm). As joe outside developer it seems like this project is some wierd mismash of Bazzar/closed development with a CVS tree at sourceforge(?) the 4.0 tree over on SDM and only a few actually know what goes where. I want to help, I really do, but I don't want to duplicate work either. Any help would be appreciated.

Was 3.2.5 uploaded to Sourceforge as scheduled?
Posted by Roberto Mello on
No. Releases are made through CVS only hosts the CVS tree for 3.2.x. The 4.x tree is hosted at

Here's a report:

I am still writing the last pieces of the upgrade-openacs-3.2.4-3.2.5 script (committed a bunch of ecommerce stuff and for other modules yesterday). I still need to include things to upgrade portals and other modules whose data model was changed.

I was able to apply part of the Intranet patch (not commited yet). But 4 or 5 files came up with rejects so I am still working with Chris Hardy on that.

And there's new-file-storage to uploade new-file-storage-defs.tcl (hint, hint).

I know there are a lot of folks anxious to get their hands on 3.2.5. We are too! But we are trying to ensure we'll have a good product released, so have a little more patience please.
