Rt 1.3.17


#1

I’ve released RT 1.3.17 and DBIx::SearchBuilder 0.0.3 (not yet to CPAN).
This release adds ticket modification (including watchers) through the
web ui. As far as I know, RT 1.3.17 fulfills all the items in the
"Alpha1" featureset list.

If a couple of you would be willing to download it and attempt an installation,
I’d appreciate it. The first person (other than me) to create a ticket by
mail, cli and web (without hacking code) gets to name the alpha1 release.*

You get bonus points if you do it on oracle.

Yay! I’m probably disqualified, though.

No oracle for me, but on a similar topic, what’s the status of the Pg
port?

Nope. you count. I take it that means you made it happen?

No oracle for me, but on a similar topic, what’s the status of the Pg
port?

I dunno. the folks doing the original postgres port fel off the face of the earth. There are several components to this that would need doing:
1. Adding a SearchBuilder::Handle::Pg
The interesting thing here is how to deal with uniqueids for
inserts…but it shouldn’t be too hard.
2. Creating a schema
This is really just porting the existing mysql schema
3. ACLs and database creation.

Anyone wanna sign up for any of these three tasks?

I’ll try to integrate those into 1.3.18 (which I suspect Ivan gets to name)

Ya, postgres has a different idea of OID. (I.E. when you do an insert into
table with auto-incremented column, you can get back an OID of the row
inserted, then you have to do a query (select pkey from table where
oid=youroid) to get the pkey. This allows to scale where more than one
field is autoincremented, or where autoincremented field is not pkey (or
where’s no pkey).

    2. Creating a schema
            This is really just porting the existing mysql schema

I’ll probably start with oracle schema, as mysql has way too many
non-portable idiosyncrasies.

    3. ACLs and database creation.

Anyone wanna sign up for any of these three tasks?
Tomorrow is hacking day, and I’ll try to do all that.

I managed to get RT 1.3.somewhere-in-march with postgres, shouldn’t be
that hard to do it again. That RT was badly broken so I threw it away and
never worked more on it :slight_smile:
