Subject Re: Updating Forrest for debian, packaging questions
Date Tue, 04 Jan 2005 11:43:36 GMT
Hi Upayavira,

Thanks for that - if the check was removed then it might get a bit 
further then.

I just had a further play -> it looks like Cocoon/Forrest is writing 
it's log files into the ${context-root}/WEB-INF/logs directory according 
to the context/WEB-INF/logkit.xconf configuration.

This will be the next issue then, as /usr/share/forrest/** would 
normally be root.root ownership with no write permissions.

Should we perhaps reconfigure the logkit.xconf to log to a per user 
location or similar? Any thoughts there?

Since this (and updating the Cocoon version to include the patch) would 
be a change to the base dependencies for Forrest - is there a plan for a 
point release of Forrest soon?

Thanks for everyone's help. :)



PS. Yes, a Debian package for Cocoon would be great too.

There was a Cocoon1 package many eons ago, and from memory some attempts 
at packaging Cocoon2 - but nothing really eventuated. I think mainly due 
to the embedded nature of Cocoon itself (eg. if 2.1.6 was packaged, we 
still couldn't depend on it for Forrest 0.6 as it uses a 2.2.0-dev cut).

I'll check with the original ITP (intent to package) holders to see what 
the status is though, we might be able to take advantage of it in the 
future. :)
