Let me forward your reply to the list, I suppose it should go there.

ad. point 2 and 5: Apart from documenting the issues Matías had to fix manually, don't you think we need to solve them in the install script, in order for a smooth installation?

Matías, could you please provide some additional info on 3 and 4?

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

pointed noted.  we will replace it with variable name there.

 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.

yes.  the install script does not include at this moment all the steps
that prepares the site.
we will add in the documentation this extra step.  I do think, that
will be few more such steps that have not yet gone into the
documentation.  For example,  we are using tinymca editor, and we made
some changes for placing images from the kb into the editor.  this
changed vesion of tinymca is not part of the cvs.  this also needs to
be documented.
some more additional steps may have also been missed.

 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.

which fix was it?

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

which problems?

 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.

cvs includes only the selfApp archetype.  secondly, as I mentioned
earlier, autoinstallation script is not performing all the things that
are required as of now.   the selfApp on cselfish and cvs, as per the
info from Rajiv, are uptodate.  last update was made about a day ago,
and also few hours ago today.

 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:

this bug is fixed yesterday and Rajiv notified to Matias.  I could not
close the bug yesterday.
