since my checkin to add alternate templates i've noticed a couple times where the main /index.html page wasn't munged properly. The first time, the page was wrapped, like a normal file, and the news blurb wasn't substituted. The second time, i had added index.html to /NOWRAP so the only problem was the news blurb. the wrapping process always wraps /index.html first. maybe something is messing up and wrapping the file again later on with the normal wrapped files, and overwriting the good one. In addition, when I noticed this problem i typed 'make' in mozilla-org and the entire tree rebuilt because files in the output directory were older than various template files (and wrap.pl?). Not sure what's touching the template files. (dostage?) Last night i looked at a file that was triggering a mass rebuild and its time stamp was a few hours off. rebuilding the tree fixes the first problem, although not always on the first try. this should be fixed before merging branch with the trunk but not necessarily before rc1 since its intermittent and i don't know how to reproduce
yes, I experienced this problem last night as well. quite unsettling when it happens. we definitely want to get to the bottom of this.
Endico, the %%var%% is not working in http://www.mozilla.org/projects/thunderbird/ either
This happened again shortly after i checked in the new home page in to the trunk. The first build worked fine but later when I added a new item to news.html, the blurb substitution failed again. (or maybe it was already broken by then. i didn't look at the site right before the checkin.) The problem with the thunderbird page was fixed by touching the page in the html directory (to force a rebuild) and typing make. This happened before i checked in the new blurb to news.html and site variables on other pages worked just fine. I am completely unable to reproduce the bug. It seems to be associated with mozilla-org/html/VARIABLES (or sometimes files in mozilla-org/tools or template files) getting mysteriosuly touched and causing a rebuild of the entire tree. To fix the problem, touch /data/www/stage-docs/mozilla-org/html/news.html touch /data/www/stage-docs/mozilla-org/html/index.html cd /data/www/stage-docs/mozilla-org make grep BLURB /data/www/stage-docs/mozilla-org/output/index.html (if this is empty then continue) cp /data/www/stage-docs/mozilla-org/output/index.html /data/www/docs
has this been fixed?
reassigning endico's bugs to default owner
Has this been resolved with the new website?
