Subject [jira] Commented: (FOR-1187) upgraded PDF plugin was not deployed properly
Date Sun, 09 Jan 2011 10:15:45 GMT


David Crossley commented on FOR-1187:

In this case it does not actually matter. The PDF plugin is the only plugin that is shipped
as source along with a Forrest release. So forrest uses its own local version and all is okay.

I tested with a Forrest-0.8 release and with a Forrest-0.7 release (remember with 0.7 to declare
the specific ...pdf-0.1 version of the plugin in the project's file) and
pdf production does work properly.

Also did a test with a fresh Forrest-0.8 release, by removing the local plugins/org.apache.forrest.plugin.output.pdf
directory. The seed site build then proceeded as expected: downloaded the old currently deployed
plugin from f.a.o from the plugins/0.8 directory, and the PDFs are okay.

So i think that what is now needed, is to deploy a versioned (0.2) zip from an old svn trunk.
I will keep notes of what i do because i am a bit unsure about plugin deployment process.
It is good to practice on this PDF plugin, as per paragraph 1 of this comment.
