Forum OpenACS Development: Re: OpenACS 5.10.0 beta 1 available

Hi Antonio,

won't parse URLs that do not comply with the RFC

I understand.

suspect a problem with your configuration

I would reformulate and say that our configuration might be outside your usual test coverage :-) However, it worked with OACS 5.9.1 or earlier, so you somehow broke compatibility.

I understand this is an instance of the "works on my system" problem. It's very, very common...

help troubleshoot

Here is the default config script:

I guess there will be a total of ~20 issues in OACS 5.10, about 15 old ones (5.9.1 and earlier) and ~5 new ones (just guessing). I can provide you with a development system to allow you to quickly reproduce these issues.

The default config script is not helpful, as it does not reproduce the situation that brings to the broken URL. My speculation is that this has something to do with the way host and port are configured on the instance that is "misbehaving". The URL ends up with an invalid ":" at the end, which is at the core of your problem, and you should try and find out why.

Concerning new and existing issues, please report them in the bug tracker, if you did not already and we will try to address them. If they are severe enough, they might be fixed before the 5.10 release.
