i will work on improving DB2 mediawiki port in 1.17. Currently there
is a problem with missing template class so i cant even run installer.
Can you give me some schedule when will be 1.17 in good enough state to
let me work on database backend?
PHP Fatal error: Class 'BaseTemplate' not found in
/home/hsn/public_html/phase3/skins/Vector.php on line 344
There are no big stability problems with either 1.17
(/branches/REL1_17 , which you don't seem to be running because none
of the BaseTemplate code is in there) or trunk (/trunk/phase3). The
error you're running into is just someone making a silly mistake (not
putting the BaseTemplate class in the AutoLoader) and should already
be fixed, from looking at the code. This kind of thing happens in
development code every now and then, and it hardly ever takes more
than a few hours to be noticed and fixed (usually much faster, even).
As for 1.17 vs. trunk: your DB2 development work should be done in
/trunk/phase3 , that's where all development happens. At this point
1.17 is sort of being frozen, so only bugfixes and the like are merged
from trunk to the 1.17 branch. This means your DB2 work won't be part
of 1.17 (not will any other new features), but it'll be in 1.18 if
it's sufficiently stable by then.
If this is not developer mailing list please let me
No worries, you're in the right place. MediaWiki developers also hang
out on IRC (#mediawiki on freenode), you're welcome there for getting
advice from fellow developers and telling them the next time trunk
breaks like that :)
