rdoc bug (and rdoc bug tracker site is down)

Discussion in 'Ruby' started by Brian Schröder, Sep 17, 2004.

  1. Hello Group,

    I just noticed an rdoc parsing bug, and tried to enter the rdoc bug-tracking system, but it gives me a warning that I'm not allowed to enter the page because I'm not an administrator. That seems odd.

    Anyway, I'll report the bug here and hope that it is not considered as spam.

    Example file:

    def foo
    #COMMENT\\\
    puts "bar"
    #COMMENT///
    end

    Resulting Source Code in Source code Window:
    def foo
    #COMMENT\\ puts "bar"
    #COMMENT///
    end

    So line continuation has taken precedence over comment. That is not the behaviour that ruby emits.

    Thank you,

    Brian

    Ah, I see. I think it is this way because rdoc is no longer hosted on
    sourceforge, but included in the ruby main tree.

    But a clearer error message would be helpfull.

    cheers,

    Brian

    SourceForge are remarkably unhelpful when it comes to moving projects
    away. In effect they refused to remove rdoc, even though I pointed out
    that it was doing the community a disservice by keeping it there.

    Sigh...


    Cheers

    I faced this same problem when I moved the One-Click Ruby Installer from
    SourceForge to RubyForge. Here's what I did to minimize any user confusion
    for users that ended up at SourceForge...

    The main thing I did was to edit the project summary description to read:

    The Ruby Installer for Windows project
    has moved to RubyForge. Please go to
    http://rubyinstaller.rubyforge.org/

    This text shows up in sourceforge search results as well as at the top of
    the project summary page.

    In addition, I deleted all released files, and redirected the home web page
    to the RubyForge project home page.

    Can you just remove releases, and disable the tracker facility? And
    put a relevant message on the homepage?

    That's what I did.
