The core team is looking to revamp the bin/radiant script in the next
release and we are thinking of dropping support for the --unpack flag.
The unpack flag extracts the entire source tree from the Radiant gem and
allows you to run the gem in “application” mode rather than “instance”
mode. Presently, it is becoming a pain to create an upgrade script
unpacked Radiant applications, thus we are considering dropping support
for them from the Radiant command. If we did this, you could still
extract Radiant from a tar file to run it in unpacked “application”
mode, but you would be on your own when it comes to upgrading it.
Upgrading would still be supported for applications running in instance
Did you install Radiant from source or use the gem?
If you installed Radiant using the gem, did you use the --unpack flag
with the radiant command?
Would you mind if we dropped support for upgrading unpacked Radiant
applications (apps installed using the --unpack flag) if it
means that Radiant releases can occur more frequently?
The more people who respond the better.
