TarboxMichaelDaum, if you're listening, how does the sidebar work in natskin? I see that it posts to the save form with bookmark_web and bookmark_topic parameters, but I can't find how that translates into updating the UserNameSideBar topic.
bah, just found it. Didn't scroll down enough.

gac410Foo. Trying to build a CpanContrib that will let Foswiki be 100% functional without the site installing local cpan modules. Not possible :(
Several dependencies are NOT available as pure perl implementations, so they must be compiled for the target system
So WysiwygPlugin and SSL email will be non-functional without locally installed CPAN modules.
[14:21]
TarboxImagePlugin
if it matters
[14:22]
gac410Unless we provide CpanContrib with some clever way to bootstrap cpanm and compile the XS versions.
Tarbox, That's not a default extension is it?
[14:23]
Tarboxah. Probably not. It's a very fussy plugin.
I think NatSkin requires it? Or maybe I installed it separately.
[14:24]
gac410The objective is to make a "default install" run out of the box for sites that can't install cpan modules. CpanContrib will be a last resort package of all cpan libs required for Default.
Yeah NatSkin has lots of deps. Not going to try for that.

TarboxI have a named section that keeps disappearing on me. Is there any combination of events that would lead to Foswiki removing a named section?
actually hold on I'm losing files too
Ah! The rsync!
my fault.
[15:06]
gac410Phew... [15:06]
TarboxI know, right? Sorry for the panic. [15:06]

Is there a way to prevent the use of a skin without uninstalling it completely? I'm not interested in maintaining the look and feel of our wiki outside NatSkin. [17:10]

gac410Hi Tarbox I don't really know, and you'd have to test Foswiki without PatternSkin installed. It's so embedded into Foswiki, I have no idea if there are any little dependencies that slip through into the core. [17:45]
Tarbox... there are at least a few. I tried it once and recoiled in horror
although maybe they were easily fixable
I don't remember.
I've essentially commented out interpreting skin= and cover= in urls, but that still leaves editing the preferences on a page as a vector.
[17:45]
gac410If you find any issues with removing PatternSkin, please open a task. hm... You might need SKIN or COVER for the rss feeds, and certainly the print view to work. [17:47]
Tarboxbuh didn't think of those.
Maybe I should just exclude pattern instead of commetning it out.
The problem I had with someone using skin=pattern is bits of UI hanging around showing information that was hidden in natskin, and our editor pool is sworn not to write pages that display it.
so an information leak.
just so many vectors. TT_TT
[17:49]
gac410Wiki's are really designed to be open. Trying to close down something fundamentally designed for sharing is rather challenging. [17:57]
TarboxYeah. We've got a tiered access where the editor pool is small but wants it to be wiki like, and the user pool is very large and needs to be shepherded very carefully.
Our other options weren't better.
