Subject [jira] Commented: (INFRA-1110) upgrade moin installation to latest version
Date Tue, 10 Jun 2008 09:11:45 GMT


Ate Douma commented on INFRA-1110:

I've spend the greater part of yesterday to determine all the patches made against the 1.3.4
base MoinMoin installation and check how they match to the latest MoinMoin 1.5.9 and 1.6.3.

I generated the diffs from svn using $diff -r 158177:HEAD and will attach the (significant
part of the) diffs shortly. 
Later today/this week, I will try to comment each bit with respect to the current MoinMoin
codebase as far as I could determine.
Disclaimer: I'm *not* a Python coder, so my interpretation capabilities here are limited.

One important note upfront: I generated the diffs based on r158177 as baseline revision, *not*
the "initial-install-moin-1.3.4" tag created by Leo Simons
because when he tagged that revision (r158466) some customizations were already put in place...
I compared r158177 against a clean installation of MoinMoin-1.3.4 to make sure it really matched
up, and it did, except for a few new bin scripts (addwiki, pycompile, wikibackup, wikiextract.rb)
and a missing non important moin-1.3.4.egg-info file.

The changes to the apwiki/bin folder I've ignored, only the backup and addwiki shell scripts
being significant but those are ASF-specific anyway.
Also, the apwiki/config folder is independent from MoinMoin itself so I'm ignoring that too
(for now). 

Then there a few minor modifications to apwiki/share and finally the real meat of the changes
in apwiki/lib.
For those, I'll attach 2 separate diff files, apwiki-share.diff and apwiki-lib.diff

> In the latest version they replaced the chmod calls with

> not supporting more than 100 concurrent wikis, and
> we're closing in on that mark with over 70 wikis now.
> Would be good to start by getting a feel of where the 
> current wiki stands in terms of custom mods, and see if we

> and of the ones that haven't been picked up, which are still essential.
