I 'd like to ask you to refrain, if possible, from committing changes to the blocks/ directory and to anything else related to blocks for a few days. Currently I 'm working on rewriting the blocks to include many popular feature requests that Daryl Hawes implemented in his "blog" system. The changes being done are rather radical, so please minimize your commits since I have no choice but to merge them into the refactored code.
PS: I 'm only talking about HEAD, of course, not the 1.4 branch.
Sorry, I didn't know about that. I'm new to this cvs-stuff, I tried to follow the directions on moodle.org but maybe I made a mistake. Should the glossary_random block go in HEAD or 1.4 ?
(And if it's in the wrong place can I delete it? Or even can you delete it?)
Jon will correct me if I'm wrong.... Jon is reviewing several changes Daryl Hawes has made to the block code - existing blocks might still work, although when it is released, you may want to improve some of the third party blocks to take advantage of some of the new features available in the block code!
-even if backward compatibility is broken - it shouldn't take much to upgrade old blocks - it should be an easy fix.
- It will be to achieve both greater simplicity and greater flexibility in the block code
- It will not require more than a couple minutes editing from an experienced developer to fix a block to work once more
Hope that helps...
