_empty web ships with lonely WebHome.txt,v. Seen in Beta6. It needs to be removed. Or better, add a WebHome.txt so that the web is accessible as a web?
$ unzip -l TWiki-4.0.0-beta6.zip | grep _empty
0 01-17-06 17:27 data/_empty/
0 01-17-06 17:27 data/_empty/WebHome.txt
195 01-17-06 17:27 data/_empty/WebHome.txt,v
is not used "so that the web is accessible as a web", WebPreferences
is used for that. So your point is valid; without a WebPreferences
it won't be recognised as a web.
.txt to WebPreferences
.txt in SVN 8460
Just to clarify, the unzipped beta6 did only contain WebHome.txt,v, the WebHome.txt file was missing. Is possibly caused by zip utility that ignores files of zero bytes?
Confirmed. WinZip on Windows lists _empty/WebHome.txt in TWiki-4.0.0-beta6.tgz, but does not extract possibly because it has zero bytes.
