Another RT upgrade question

To list,

I had thought I heard that the latest version of RT (3.8.7) allowed for
Custom FIelds to be defined as “Date” and a user could select a date
from a calender like on other RT “ticket” date fields. Is that so? If
so, how do I do it? Thanks.

News to me. The major CF feature in 3.8.7 is nested categories,
and in versions before that autocomplete.

This may be more appropriate in a MySQL list, but I figured I would give
it a shot.

I am upgrading from MySQL 4.0 ro MySQL 5.0.51 and according to the
UPGRADE readme I need to export/import as binary. Here is what I get
when I try to export binary:

mysqldump: Character set ‘binary’ is not a compiled character set and is
not specified in the ‘/usr/share/mysql/charsets/Index’ file

There does not seem to be much in the way of how to add character sets
to MySQL. Can anyone give me some direction here?

Jerrad,

OH well. Guess I heard wrong. Too bad. It seems to me that would be a
feature many would like.

There’s been discussion of a submitted patch & 3.8.5, which you participated in:
http://www.gossamer-threads.com/lists/rt/users/88354?search_string=custom-field%20date;#88354

But it’s obviously not yet been accepted.

Jerrad,

Yes. That’s what i was remembering. Since we are currently at 3.8.7, I
just hoped it had been made part of the core by now. Thanks for the
reminder.

Date cf’s would be a cool feature!
