Description Thomas Eckert 2004-03-14 08:59:35 UTC
a simple rename did the job for me.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
Comment 1 Thilo Pfennig 2004-03-16 12:17:19 UTC
What did you rename? I also liek to use moinmoin 1.2.1. Is it available?
Comment 2 Thomas Eckert 2004-03-16 13:00:52 UTC
only renamed the ebuild:
  cd /usr/portage/net-www/moinmoin
  cp -a moinmoin-1.0.ebuild moinmoin-1.2.1.ebuild
  ebuild moinmoin-1.2.1.ebuild digest
  emerge moinmoin
(this change will be reverted on the next "emerge sync" -- the copy will be

it would be nice if you could keep this bug up to date with our findings,
  good luck
Comment 3 Stuart Herbert (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-03-17 11:14:43 UTC
Okay - I've done what you did, and copied the existing ebuild.  It should be showing up on a local rsync mirror in an hour or so.  

Can you test it for me, and confirm that it works?  I haven't attempted to install and test this for myself ...

Comment 4 Thomas Eckert 2004-03-18 01:36:56 UTC
looks ok to me, after adjusting the frontpage shows up with all
graphics and the sandbox is editable (although I'm not a active moinmoin-user --
just evaluating wikis in general at the moment).

I'm not sure what the policy for "webapp-configfiles" is ... 2 points:
a) many webapps have a config-files (here:, typically these
files are not protected and get overwritten during a backup
=> how to prevent this? (maybe install config-files with "-${PV}" appended)
b) the currently installed default does not find the graphics:
we could "sed the config-file" or add a note in pkg_postinst() as the user needs
to edit that file anyway. suggestion for note:
einfo "Adjust \"${HTTPD_ROOT}/${PN}/\" to fit your needs."
Comment 5 Stuart Herbert (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-03-18 11:15:26 UTC
The issues with the config file will be solved when this ebuild is ported over to use the new webapp-config approach.  I'll open a new bug to cover that work.

Best regards,
