Hm cdot, MichaelDaum_ ... Looking at Item14369 - All these macros - USERNAME, WIKINAME, WIKIUSERNAME are all marked as DEPRECATED in the macro code. Done back in refactoring code in 1.1.0, [14:37]
FoswikiBothttps://foswiki.org/Tasks/Item14369 [ Item14369: Enhance USERNAME to take a WIKINAME as an argument ] [14:37]
gac410But they were never published as deprecated in release notes, etc. [14:38]
....... (idle for 31mn)
Actually I cannot imagine actually removing any of those macros. What would be the benefit. Lets just remove the deprecations and document them a bit further as being aliases for USERINFO with a fixed format. [15:09]
cdot .. tracking this all backwards, the deprecation was made in twiki rev 10414, by you, so before the fork. ;) Any idea where this was going - removing really common macros like these? [15:19]
cdotgac410: no idea. There's probably some discussion on it back on the Death Star. Or maybe not.
we went through several iterations of canonical user ids, and that sort of thing. Might have been around then.
[15:22]
gac410Anyway, it all seems silly to force users to type in USERINFO{format="$wikiname"} vs just entering %WIKINAME% [15:23]
cdotAh yes. I think I had in mind to * Set WIKINAME = %USERINFO{format="$wikiname"}% or some such
however there are reasons for not doing that (quotes, mainly)
[15:23]
gac410well, it's only a few lines of code, demand loaded, and is more flexible in that it accepts an argument to request the users. [15:24]
cdotpls ca change [15:24]
gac410sorry ... need to translate that one ;) [15:25]
cdotplus ├ža change - a groan of resignation [15:25]
gac410ah. ;)
I was actually looking at that for the PARENTTOPIC macro that Vicki requested. But I could not figure out how to pass parameters from one macro to the next. ie PARENTTOPIC{format="blah" prefix="blah"} passed through to META{"parent" format=passed prefix=passed}

cdotgood grief, that RcsLite code needs loading onto a viking longship, soaking in oil, and igniting. [15:57]

distro/master edfcc28 cdot: Item14368: reinstated RcsWrap to handler tests, fixed the problems that showed up (none serious), added tests for edge cases of getRevision. Still not sure what causes the corrupt histories in RcsLite, but closer to an understanding.
distro/master 4dd1eb1 cdot: Merge branch 'master' of https://github.com/foswiki/distro
distro/master a542eea cdot: Item14368: stop linear growth of log field; add a repair for corruption of histories; correct repRev of version 1 behaviour. Add meaningful warnings for corruption.

cdotgac410: that RcsLite fix would benefit from going out in the next patch. It should repair broken histories. [16:06]
gac410Ugh.. .you committed it to master. I'll have to cherry-pick it. Best to bugfix on Release branch and then merge into master. In the other direction we cannot merge, so new commits are required. [16:08]
.... (idle for 15mn)
cdot .. I noticed you added a call to saveFile in your last commit. Any chance that this could be related to that bug where the extension installer was failing to update topics?
I think I had fixed it but maybe more than one path?
[16:23]
cdotno, fraid not [16:23]
gac410okay .. Well I do think it's fixed. Just had to ask :D [16:24]
cdotthe call I added was to do with repRev of rev 1 of a topic. That whole area might be related, now I come to think of it. Worth testing. [16:24]
gac410Turned out that topicObject->attach() causes a re-read of the topic text. So you cannot load a topic object, modify the text, add an attachment and then save. [16:25]
