Subject Re: geocouch with polygons
Date Sat, 14 Jul 2012 22:21:19 GMT
     I finally traced all my mistakes. Couch 1.2.0 works fine now and
passes all Couch 1.2.0 specific tests. I had to upgrade my version of
Firefox in the process amongst other things. I had also forgotten to
update an environment flag.

     In any event, all but one test for geocouch (with polygons)
passes. The final test spatial_opensearch fails with:
Assertion 'Intersects 3 geometries.' failed: expected '3', got '0'
Assertion 'searching with polygon' failed: expected '["0","1","2"]', got '[]'
Assertion 'Intersects one LineString twice.' failed: expected '1', got '0'
Assertion 'Intersects one geometry.' failed: expected '1', got '0'
Assertion 'Intersects two geometries.' failed: expected '2', got '0'

     Any clue what that might be?
