Recently I wanted to export the full article issues&archive from OJS 2.3.7 to my production site (in OJS 2.3.6).
When I export looks like everything is going well, and the xml generated looks fine (with embed PDFs and so on) but when I import, OJS claims some basic fields are not included (for instance "DB Error: Column 'email' cannot be null") and the importation fails.
I other words, seams to me that at least 2.3.7 doesn't complains with 2.3.6 DTD, is it possible?
Then I DIFFed 2.3.6 and 2.3.7 DTD and they are exactly the same (the only change is in the copyright) so I
Then I took a look to the bugtrack and I only found a couple of issues not much related:http://pkp.sfu.ca/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=6929http://pkp.sfu.ca/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=6942
Does any body found a similar issue? Any idea about how to deal with it?
I'm surprised so the only idea that make sense to me it's an issue with the DB of the OJS source (2.3.7).
If the DB is not consistent and don't include (for instance) emails, OJS can not generate the exportation correctly
Does it make sense? I will contact the OJS sysadmin to take a look to the DB.
