Moodle 2.2.6+ upgrade?
 

I think I've managed to lose the plot. I'm hoping someone will point me in the right direction.

I look after a Moodle 2.2 installation which I regularly update using CVS. (I'm aware that CVS is being phased out in favour of GIT).

I'm always quick to upgrade after a security advisory comes out, but I seem to have missed the very latest notification. As soon as I noted it listed publicly, I went in and did my usual "cvs update -dP" and sure enough a few things were updated.

However, I note that the version shown in Notifications is 2.2.6+ (Build: 20121230) (I don't recall what it was before I did the update, but my last one was quite recent).

This is worrying me. Shouldn't it have updated to 2.2.7 now? Aren't there some issues with the 2.2.6+ as per the advisory?

I did another "cvs update -dP" just in case, but no change.

The CVS Tag file shows TMOODLE_22_STABLE which is what I was expecting. I'm using uk.cvs.moodle.org as the CVS server.

I'd really like to stick to CVS until I upgrade to 2.4 (which, I suppose, needs to be scheduled to be done soon, given that 2.2 doesn't have that long to go before it goes EOL for security updates).

Any advice please?

Thanks!

EDIT: D'oh. Just seen this about CVS. https://moodle.org/mod/forum/discuss.php?d=215489

Hmm......

Hi

"cvs -z3 -d:pserver:anonymous@SERVER.cvs.moodle.org:/cvsroot/moodle co -P -r MOODLE_22_STABLE moodle" with SERVER=eu also fetches 2.2.6+, dated 20121230. So the message https://moodle.org/mod/forum/discuss.php?d=215489 means the CVS server is frozen on the 31st Dec 2012.

This is the consequence of the version gallop of Moodle. If Git is not yet an option you might have to take diff of your current moodle, overwrite it with 2.2.7 from the zip and apply patch.

The state of the 2.2 branch is BTW,
"Bug fixes for general core bugs in 2.2.x ended December 2012 (12 months).
Bug fixes for serious security issues in 2.2.x will end June 2013 (18 months)."

I've started this topic in the "Moodle community sites" forum, see "CVS_for_Administrators" https://moodle.org/mod/forum/discuss.php?d=221114.

Voice your opinion there before it is too late!
