 HEADS UP - some categories are "missing"
Author: Dan 
Date:   07-11-04 22:51

Hi folks,

I just discovered that some categories are missing. In particular, I noticed that http://www.freshports.org/accessibility/ is incomplete. I know the fix, and will be implementing it as soon as I can.

If someone has time to go through the categories listed at http://www.freshports.org/categories.php and note here any that give results similar to http://www.freshports.org/accessibility/, please let us know here and I'll tidy them up. I'll check back in a few days.

Yes, I'd do this myself, but I've run out of time.

FWIW, this fixes the problem for one category:

update categories set is_primary = TRUE, element_id = 171607 where id = 85;

cheers

I've found that http://www.freshports.org/x11-themes/ suffers from the same problem.

Also, FWIW, I've noticed that some categories have the wrong description. Now, categories get their descriptions from:

[dan@polo:/usr/ports/polish] $ make -V COMMENT
Polish language support
[dan@polo:/usr/ports/polish] $

Perhaps I should refresh all that stuff.

 Fixed, but cause not found

I'm not sure what caused the problem in the first place. I am unable to reproduce the situation with my testing. I suspect that I'll need to test with the code as it was on the date these new categories were added. This may be a bug that has already been fixed. Regardless, I want to reproduce the problem and thereby understand the problem before I can claim it has been fixed.

In the meantime, I have fixed fixed < http://www.freshports.org/accessibility/> and http://www.freshports.org/x11-themes/.

I have no idea why this affected only the above two categories and not the categories that were created between them. For example:

freshports.org=# select is_primary, name, description from categories where id >= 85 order by id;
is_primary | name | description
------------+---------------+-------------------------------------------------
t | accessibility | no description supplied
f | php | no description supplied
t | arabic | No description supplied (pkg/COMMENT not found)
f | pear | no description supplied
f | lisp | no description supplied
t | x11-themes | no description supplied
t | net-mgmt | Network management tools
f | paralell | no description supplied
(8 rows)

Time will reveal the answer I hope.
