Release Meeting: 19 Feb 2018


General status.

Meeting was mostly private discussing some security issues in Foswiki 2.1.5, and the NatEditPlugin.

It was discovered that the NatEditPlugin was unable to handle some ACLs. When the ACLs were not supported they were silently ignored and lost after save. This also applied when a topic was edited from a Topic Template, or when a topic was copied, which used the source topic as a Template.

It was decided to disable the Permissions tab when unsupported settings were detected.

1. Task review

  • 14494 (Confirmed): PlainFileStoreContrib shows ProjectContributor as UnknownUser Checkins on branches: - Crawford proposed a change.
  • 14516 (Confirmed): table not processed when there is a %FOOBAR{} before Checkins on branches: - Crawford mostly implies this is a "won't fix" situation
  • 14616 (Closed): The generic tools/extension_installer no longer functions on perl 5.26+. Checkins on branches: Release02x01 master Item14288 - 3 areas to fix.
    • Configure::Load should do a better job of trapping errors
    • Example =Config.spec files should include a comment and end with 1; to avoid issues.
    • BuildContrib should do a better job of checking Config.spec, and don't bundle ones without any settings.
