Forum OpenACS Q&A: Response to ANN: OpenACS CVS Commits now on forums

Let's congratulate the boy before we nitpick him to death!

Good job, Roberto!  This is cool.

How hard would it be to put the commits for OpenACS 4 in a forum mounted under the openacs-4 project rather than in a general forum?

I think categorization would be good ... then one could visit the forum directly to see all openacs-4 commits yet the bug tracker could offer package-specific links that just show those for a particular package.

Better formatting would be good, as Jeff mentions.

I think where we end up with this is that we'll probably have a custom display page to display these.

Hmmm ... when the forums idea came up it was partly because of our thinking that qmail insertion would be straightforward and easy.  Since you're doing it in Tcl general comments might be a better base, long term, for integration with the bugtracker.

However ... this is a fantastic hack no matter what long-term solution we invent. I love it!
