I've tried to access http://sdm.openacs.org and I continue to see the connection aborted. Don't think it's a problem on my end because it's the only site I'm having a problem with. Lynx shows the following:
# lynx http://openacs.org/sdm/

sdm.openacs.org is no longer being used. Instead, go to http://openacs.org/bugtracker/openacs/.

Thank you, Simon. I suspected that was the case.

However, Google has *many* links in error that reference sdm.openacs.org. Maybe it would be a good idea to redirect sdm.openacs.org requests to the appropriate location on openacs.org?

From my experience, Google's search capabilities blow away the openacs.org search capabilities. So, I believe it's worth the time and effort to make sure that Google's result links land in the right place.

We're not using the SDM for new bugs (and I believe Jeff changed the bug submit link to point you to bugtracker) but it's not been broken intentionally.  There are still old bugs in the SDM that haven't been fixed or migrated to the bugtracker.

Neither psql or aolserver can connect to that database at the moment.  Roberto's been notified.  He's got both PG 7.2 and PG 7.1 running on the box and it's possible the problem's related to this.  Since he's been the last person to touch PG on the box (AFAIK) I'm going to leave it broken until I hear from him.

I think I know what happenned. I'm working on it. Apologies in advance for the problem, which was probably caused by me.

Ok, problem resolved.

sdm.openacs.org and dotlrn.org are still running off of PostgreSQL 7.1.

openacs.org is running under PG 7.2.3 since a few days ago.

The problem was with a wrong setting I changed in the PG 7.1 configuration during the migration of openacs.org to PG 7.2.

I configured dotlrn.org and sdm.openacs.org to be managed under supervise, instead of the ugly inittab hack. I had setup openacs.org to be running under supervise since when the new site was in beta.

I would like to take this opportunity to point out that, over the last two years, I have seen the core keepers of OpenACS acknowledge, respond, repair, and close many issues and problems in record time. It's apparrent that each of you takes his/her responsibilities very seriously. The rest of us are very fortunate to be so well cared for.

You are all to be congratulated and thanked.

THANK YOU!

Randy
