Forum OpenACS Q&A: Re: Recommend having a place that lists the versions of things that are compatible..

I don't recommend that ALL versions of things be documented, but at least one known working config, preferably the latest. (Please add oracle driver to that list :) .. If forward compatibilty is known to NOT work, that should be indicated. My primary concern is the new user who tries to install OpenACS from CVS onto their RedHat 6.0 and nothing works only to realize that Postgres needed to be updated, or TLS, or that they need to run on Oracle 8i to use the current (and currently changing) oracle driver, when there is an Oracle 10 or 11 or something available on the Oracle site.

I think that simple step will make it easier to write more generic install docs that can just point and say 'whatever version it says there' since the details don't usually change so substantially that the instructions would change between versions.
