> it reminds me of the old discussion on "One person's critical is another person's trivial".
That's definitely a topic which we should not forget too quickly. But this time it looks like the same trivials have bocome critical for many of us. (see later)
> I have hesitated to talk about minor things in the Major Issues forum, but then I think there is no audience to speak of if I post elsewhere.
I did a web search for "little things" and found that they are in big demand. Yes, I too think we should discuss those things in other places, like this one: http://justlittlethings.net.
> I have several servers I work with, and have just done a test upgrade to 2.4.1. I thought I had done my homework, but there were still things that were gotchas. All tracker items are not the same.
I thought I've heard is somewhere. Of course that was Alice:
First it [Dodo] marked out a race-course, in a sort of circle, (`the exact shape doesn't matter,' it said,) and then all the party were placed along the course, here and there. There was no `One, two, three, and away,' but they began running when they liked, and left off when they liked, so that it was not easy to know when the race was over. However, when they had been running half an hour or so, and were quite dry again, the Dodo suddenly called out `The race is over!' and they all crowded round it, panting, and asking, `But who has won?'
> There is the nice summary that Martin pointed to. I'm not sure that the docs thing Mary referred to is as good as it could be.
http://docs.moodle.org/dev/Category:Release_notes is my favourite.
> I know this goes against the trend of Helen's work plan, but I wondered if a forum "Upgrading to 2.4" may help centralise some of the issues, even if they were just references to activity in the other 43 relevant forums.
That will cause unrest. Helen just got rid of the "Window-based Servers" causing heavy losses. If there going to be a new forum, I propose the revival of the Windows-forum.
