There are a few bug fixes [...]. I'd be happy to describe these further if you think it'd be useful.

asmecher wrote:It's probably best to mention at this point -- the release you're working with (2.2.3) is probably the last or next-to-last release in our current stable line, after which point we'll be moving to 2.3, which is quite different code-wise and may need to be packaged differently. It represents the abstraction of a lot of the support code into a separate library ("pkp" in our CVS repository), to reconcile commonalities between OJS, OCS, the Harvester, and the upcoming OMP. in Debian-land, I think this would be a separate library. We'll continue to maintain the stable release for quite a while, of course, but thought I'd give you a heads-up.
asmecher wrote:I think it would be too disruptive to pull the libraries out of CVS for the stable releases, but I agree that it's a good idea for the development (2.3) releases going forward.
asmecher wrote:To generate a Debian package, that's going to mean exporting from CVS and removing the lib/ directory there.
asmecher wrote:Meanwhile, I really like the idea of going back to the maintainers of those packages (e.g. ADODB) and trying again to get them to include some of the fixes that we've been maintaining locally.
asmecher wrote:We've been waiting on a few of these for quite a while, but another reminder from another source wouldn't hurt.
