A decision has been made! The 5th anniversary meet will be in Oxford
on Saturday 21 June, starting at lunchtime and continuing into the
evening until people need to head home.
Dom and Socks are working on figuring out a suitable venue.
Please put this date in your diaries now! You can also start inviting
other people along - I think Ivor had some thoughts on this. I'll be
publicising it on the RGL livejournal community.
RGL just hit a problem along these lines:
[Tue May 20 12:17:05 2008] [error] [client 188.8.131.52] Plucene::Store::InputStream cannot open /export/home/bob/web/vhosts/london.randomness.org.uk/indexes//_7320.fdx for reading: Too many open files at /opt/csw/share/perl/site_perl/Plucene/Store/InputStream.pm line 35.
A bit of Googling found this:
which suggested that the problem stems from temp files not being
cleaned up. Bob suspects that this might have been caused by
reindexing attempts which didn't complete (due to being manually
interrupted for some reason). Noting also that File::Temp respects
the TMPDIR environment variable, he tried another reindex using a
specific tmp directory, and this worked. He's also done something
which might make the CGIs use this tmp directory as well but he's not
sure it worked.
Bob will follow up to this mail to correct things I got wrong and add
stuff I left out. This should probably go in TROUBLESHOOTING.
Hello. I've narrowed down the possibilities for the fifth anniversary
meet. It will be in Oxford on a Saturday, starting lunchtime-ish or
early-afternoon-ish (depending on whether one of the Oxford people can
commit to being the person who will definitely be there at the
beginning - I'll be travelling from London so don't want to promise to
be there at a specific time unless that time is like 3pm or so) and
ending evening-ish, on one of the following dates:
Saturday 21 June
Saturday 28 June
Saturday 5 July
Please let me know preferences offlist, and I'll announce the chosen
date next week.
I'll leave it to the Oxford people to choose the venue. I'll be arriving
by either coach or train, whichever works out best for the venue.
Hello. As it has now become my itch, I've started working on separating out
installation of the OpenGuides modules from setup of an Open Guide. I'm
basing it on the way that CGI::Wiki::Kwiki works.
If you have a better way to do it, and either:
a) your way is less hassle (for me) than my way, or
b) you are willing to do the work your way, and plan to do so within the
next few months,
then please let me know. Otherwise I'll carry on with this. For the
time being, I won't be committing this to OpenGuides svn trunk. I can
commit it in a branch if someone would like to send me absolutely
idiot-proof instructions for doing so.
 CGI::Wiki::Kwiki can be found on search.cpan.org - it's almost certainly
quicker for you to go and have a look at it yourself than for me to try to
summarise how it works.
