Does this site look broken?. Use the LitterTray web for test cases.

I just opened configure on my SVN updated TWiki4 and see something new


And a whole lot of settings.

I have been searching for the word Joomla in the bugs web and in the TWiki web of my installation and not a word is mentioned about Joomla.

We are about to release a patch release 4.0.3.

Is there a new undocumented feature in 4.0.3 now? Does it belong in a patch release?

How will people using configure for the first time have any idea what to fill into these fields?


I have been searching through the code to find out what code actually uses all the new Joomla stuff.

I have not found a single line of code with the word Joomla in it.

It seems this is a preparation for some code to come later.

It is very confusing for the user if there are a lot of config settings and no function behind it. If I am right that both code and docs are missing the Joomla stuff should be removed from TWiki.cfg (TWiki4 branch only) before we build the 4.0.3 release.


SvenDowideit told me on #twiki that he added the Joomla stuff and I assume he will handle this himself before 4.0.3 is built and released.


A friendly reminder smile Sven if we decide to release 4.0.3 and you cannot have the Joomla stuff implemented and tested - and you therefore decide temporarily to pull out the Joomla stuff from TWiki.cfg in TWiki4, then set this bug report to Closed instead of Waiting for Release because then it does not go into the release note for 4.0.3 as a change (nothing changed in 4.0.3 if you remove the stuff).


I have checked in a TWiki.cfg with the Joomla stuff removed.

Sven told me on #twiki that this was what he had planned himself so I am giving a helping hand. This change should not be done in DEVELOP because the Joomla stuff is developed there for the moment.
