3.8 suggestion


#1

Here’s a minor suggestion for 3.8: versioned schemas.

It would be a lot easier to automate upgrade if you could simply query
the database to determine what schema version is installed. Yeah, I
know, nothing like coming late to the party, but this came up while I
was attempting to upgrade to the latest beta.

Who knows? It might even provide a clever programmer the capability of
writing an extension that performs correctly across multiple versions,
or does different things for different versions.

Yep. That’s something we’ve implemented in Jifty for RT4 but hadn’t
backported as we’re aready stretched pretty thin. I’d love a patch,
though :wink:
