Re: Rails 1.1?


#1

But isn’t it recommended to use a frozen version of Rails, at least when
using
shared hosting. If most Typo users use frozen Rails the size of the Typo
distribution
wouldn’t matter that much.

But if there’s not that much hassle supporting
multiple Rails version I guess it’s not worth it.

that much larger if we can avoid it. We can nail Typo to specific
Rails
versions (and we probably will for releases from now on), but I don’t
think
that distributing Rails with Typo solves many problems.

I’ve asked it before,

Typo
contain
a frozen version of Rails so that everyone runs the same version?

(That doesn’t solve the problem with incompatibilities with Rails 1.1
but

I think there would be less problems)

“So, it’s out. What do we do?”
How about

  1. a version-aware environment.rb in trunk and release
    versionsimmediately, so that those who must can upgrade their systems to
    Rails1.1 and keep Typo running
  2. publishing a list of the problematic areas of current app
  3. re-focusing on getting all the legacy junk out the application now
    I’m assuming the members of the commit team are most familiar with
    thecode and they might offer specific suggestions on how to fix it, or
    atleast what the biggest problems are. If a list is posted here,
    perhapsit will attract some help.
