Description Alec Smecher 2008-01-11 12:14:31 PST
Blank public IDs are saved as empty strings rather than NULL values; this causes indexing to run into duplicates. Should check for this in:

- Public article IDs
- Public issue IDs
- Public supp file IDs

Should also ensure that blanks are turned into nulls as part of the upgrade process.

To work around this for OJS 2.2, run the following queries before upgrading:

UPDATE issues SET public_issue_id = NULL WHERE public_issue_id = '';
UPDATE published_articles SET public_article_id = NULL WHERE public_article_id = '';
UPDATE article_supplementary_files SET public_supp_file_id = NULL WHERE public_supp_file_id = '';
