Some plugins install files into the Sandbox web.

This web is not configured in LocalSite.cfg, so the web must exist in that name for plugin installation to succeed.

  • Add a new config variable - SandboxWebName - default of Sandbox.
  • Add variable to Foswiki.spec
  • Add mapping of Sandbox web to the Configure::Util::mapTarget routine
  • Add a new SANDBOXWEB macro to

I've put this in as a bug instead of a feature - as Extension installation will save files into Sandbox, creating an invalid web even if it doesn't exist.

Added a feature request as well - SandboxWebNameShouldBeMapped

This ended up piecemeal merged into 1.1.4 and 1.1.5 when plugins were synced from trunk to release 1.1 branch. Setting ReleasedIn to 1.1.5. for the release notes.
