Trying to debug why many of my plugins do not work at all I see that my error log is flooded with

Foswiki::Plugins::HolidaylistPlugin has been guessed. '$Foswiki::cfg{Plugins}{HolidaylistPlugin}{Module}' should be defined in LocalSite.cfg

I see it defined in configure. Why is this missing? What do I do wrong? And is this why most none default plugins seem to not work in 2.0?

I've changed the message to only log when DEBUG is enabled. That should quiet down the logs.

I think a major oversight is that non-"installer" based installs were not really considered. Yes we run into them with pseudo-install, but it's just noise to developers. I had not considered that prod. sites would use pseudo-install, and had forgotten about the "unzip" instal. If you use a installer, web, or cli, everything should get set correctly That's what we have been focused on testing, and is probably the path for the vast majority of installations.

The rest of this is a duplicate of Item13560.

For the record. I am not using the pseudo install for production.

I do however install all plugins manually by unzipping and throwing the files on the production install.

That said, I never used the plugin installers because I have previously experienced that the installers added CPAN libraries using CPAN and not the Centos/Redhat package management system. I try to keep everything RPM based so that all package are kept up to date with a simple "yum update". It has become much easier in "Redhat land" after the CPAN libs were added to the EPEL rpm repository. No more chasing unofficial rpms.
