Perl Mongers have now bought hosting for our various projects. I've
started setting up the box, and now would seem to be a good time to
upgrade OpenGuides too.
However, the current installation is running 0.49 and

the latest OG code, 0.60. Is there a conversion script to migrate the
database between the two? It's currently running under postgresql, and

I upgraded Vegan Oxford from an oldish version, and it Just Worked -
it converted the database schema when I did "perl Build install".
Following up Kake's post about a SpamDetection
module. This closely
follows how things work on the current Birmingham site, with the hacked
version of the code I made. However, rather than one SpamDetection
module, I'd like to see the ability to have several, so that it allows
people to plug'n'play with a variety of detection modules. Much in the
same way that most email spam engines work.
The idea is that what I've done is completely pluggable - it'd be easy
to write a module that would call several other modules in order to
make its decision.
In addition the Birmingham OpenGuides has a rollback
allows an admin to rollback to a specific version, rather than deleting
nodes one by one. I haven't seen this as a feature, is it something that
would be useful? I don't have the time to patch anything right now, but
I could look at this during July.
I don't think we have that - and I think it would be very useful!
And finally, how painful is the template and CSS
migration likely to be?
There looks to be a lot of new templates in the latest release!
Many of the new templates come from splitting out sections of the
older, more monolithic/complicated templates. I'm happy to help with
CSS munging where necessary, having spent quite some time playing with
various OpenGuides designs recently.
