On a fresh 4.2.0-beta2 installation I cannot install extensions via configure. At the point where the archive should be fetched the following error is thrown:

Use of uninitialized value in concatenation (.) or string at /home/httpd/twiki/lib/TWiki/Configure/UIs/EXTEND.pm line 33, line 1.

TWiki::Configure::UI::getRepository returns undef. I added two lines of error handling code.

Raising to Urgent. Oliver, I see checkins, is this fixed?


Not by me. I just added the error handling code.

-- TWiki:Main.OliverKrueger - 08 Oct 2007

I never saw the reported error, but I think I know what caused it. Should be OK now.
