Some of us were hoping to talk about the Oxford
Guide at the
next-but-one Oxford Geek Night (in July), but if the guide can't be
upgraded before then, there's not much point in us going and telling
people about all of OpenGuides' new shiny features...
I will make sure that the Oxford guide is running current Openguides
I should probably follow up on this. libtemplate-perl is still out of
date in Debian and this fact, combined with the fact that there isn't
going to be an OpenGuides presence at Oxford Geek Night next month
after all means I haven't done this yet. But it's still on my radar.
libtemplate-perl is up to date, but the next stumbling block is that
I have not been able to upload libgeo-coordinates-osgb-perl to Debian,
since it has not been found to meet the Debian Free Software Guidelines.
As a result I plan to upload it to non-free instead (at least until
someone can tell me that it should go in main) but this means that
Openguides will need tweaking to suit:
which i have responded to.
If the project thinks this change shouldn't be
made in OpenGuides
it could be maintained as a patch in the Debian package, although
regardless of legal complexities it's probably worth streamlining
the installation a bit to avoid installing modules that may not be
I think its a change we shouldnt make in the CPAN version. The code deals
with it not being there. A debian patch can remove the hard dep on it.
the test will also probably need the skips put back in place or debian can
rmeove those test files entirely.
although the tests have been renumbered since.
the 2 extra modules were quite small. So given that nealry all guides
actually use OSGB it makes sense that its a dep.
I would love it if someone could pick this up
(it'll mean getting
OpenGuides up to date in Debian and hence on the OpenGuide installations
running on urchin). If not I'll stick it on my list for some point in
everything should be purple and bendy
