Does this site look broken?. Use the LitterTray web for test cases.

psuedo-install is the replacement for mklinks.pl - its manifest driven. Its kinda mklinks.pl

Theoretically Skins are a separate type of extension... alongside Plugins, Contribs and CommandSets...

How should we handle Skins for install purposes?

Can someone confirm if peudo-installing the NatSkin works given the patch below:

--- pseudo-install.pl   (revision 7525)
+++ pseudo-install.pl   (working copy)
@@ -35,7 +35,7 @@
     my $module = shift;
     print "Processing $module\n";
     my $subdir = 'Plugins';
-    $subdir = 'Contrib' if $module =~ /Contrib$/;
+    $subdir = 'Contrib' if $module =~ /(Contrib|Skin)$/;
     my $moduleDir = "twikiplugins/$module/";


Going forward I wonder whether Skins should be an Extension alongside Contrib.


We should open a thread on Codev.

Fixed in SVN 7528.

Fixed Build.pm too in SVN 7531.
