Dear all,

as from Matías' questions and reporting I'd like to ask your attention for the following issues.

1. Matías has been updating and reinstalling the latest version (CVS) of the platform. Following the instructions he could install most elements correctly, although he found some hardcoded paths. Note: /var/lib/zope2.9/instance/plone-site/xxx: 9 in the, 7 in

2. the course categories were not created. Only after finding out that there is this external method picklecoursecat invoked from ZMI, he had the course categories created.

3. then he could navigate through the web interface, but couldn't add content yet. He had to fix some issues in the method of gbrelations.

4. However he still had some problems there when the function tried to set relations between subjects.

5. Strange enough the CSELFISH (testing) instance did not have those same issues. It seems that the testing instance is not directly copied from CVS from Savannah. This shouldn't be the case: the last update of the code should always be on the CVS. And CSELFISH should reflect the CVS code. This is a very serious issue: if other developers want to check out the latest code, it should be on the CVS, that's the only efficient way it can work. So instead of bugfixing the Testing instance, we should improve the code on the cvs and install that on the testing instance, test and repeat until it works properly.

6. Matías also added a bug to the tracker at savannah, as he couldn't edit any content (after registering at cselfish). Something that has happened to me and others also. See the bug here:

I hope for an answer and solution to these issues.

Looking forward,
