I have your patches here, and am applying them this morning.
Sorry but Im out of town on business Monday-Tuesday, and I don't have time
on these days for Jetspeed.

I don't think so. Nothing has been changed recently to the customizer.
You are subscribed to jetspeed-dev, right?
You should be receiving emails for each and every commit.

Im working on finishing up the release (DBPSML, release notes), and afaik,
nobody else is working on anything right now.
Recently I added WML support to the StockQuotePortlet, and changed the
anonymous user's WML page to be the StockQuotePortlet.

To subscribe to the developers list, send an email to
I thought you were already on the list.

I can't reproduce that. Go to http://www.bluesunrise.com, Im running the
build from Sunday night.

It appears to be working as usual to me.

You have to enable confirmation email with the setting:


The default is off, since most new installations do not have an email server

Please do not delete the directory, use Jetspeed to delete the user.
PSML is stored on the file system, and user info in the database.
Perhaps we can better handle the case when the administrator accidently
deletes the directory.
Patches are welcome.

Let me try applying your patches.
I will be continuing this discussion on jetspeed-dev.
