We have: TWiki/data/PatternSkin.txt and in twikiplugins/PatternSkin/data/PatternSkin.txt and they are out of tune.
Should PatternSkin be like other plugins and have the topic in the twikiplugins directory?
That makes sense provided that the build works as expected.
Sure does. And this is a necessary thing to do.
OK, everything is now in twikiplugins/PatternSkin (SVN 7514).
And now? Can I delete the old files? How to not break things?
Er, no Arthur, that not right, yet.
Well, OK, there's confusion as to whether a skin is a Contrib, Plugin or Add-on as far as the build goes, but what's there right now doens't make the cut when build runs.
But lets make you the Poster Boy
You've got the

Now, the Poster Boy
stuff. You need a piece of code, a very small piece in
, and that needs to be in the MANIFEST as well.
All the code has
to do is declare a couple of variables - the revision. If you want to put extra descriptive stuff in there too, great.
as an example.
Now, to be fair, TWiki/InstalledPlugins only lists the revisions and descriptions for the Plugins. Perhaps we need something similar for the Contribs.
I have followed your instructions: SVN 7541, 7542, 7543.
I think it should be tested first to build without bugs before removing pattern skin from the old locations. AC
I'm getting tired of updating all files in 2 locations. What can I do now before deleting all old pattern skin files? AC
