This is an informal list - in chronological order -
of some of the noteworthy patches that have been posted
to the cocoon-dev mailing list.
These patches are not (yet) part of the Cocoon project, but need reviewing for possible
inclusion. This system was instituted because, due to the large volume of mail and
the lack of time of the committers, some patches tended to get forgetten about. This
queue does not guarantee that any patch will be reviewed within a reasonable time frame,
but it does at least make them easier to find!
Reviewers wanted! - If you have time to review and/or test these patches,
we would be grateful for your time. Please post comments to the cocoon-dev mailing lists.
Before submitting a patch, please read the page on Third-Party
Contributions. The preferred submission method for patches is:
- Post to firstname.lastname@example.org
- Describe the patch, the reason for it and (if necessary) why this is important.
- Generate the patch in
diff -u format from CVS
- Also generate a documentation patch or new file, if this is something that should be documented.
- Post as an attachment rather than inline (unless it is trivially small).
Following the above guidelines will facilitate your patch being reviewed
and applied efficiently.
[Under Construction] Archive links will be added later.
Please do not bother the patch submitters/authors without first reading the
relevant post(s) in the mailing list archives.
Vapourware will not be listed.
||Patch Against Version (mandatory)
||This is not actually a patch, but a slightly forked version of Cocoon with
ability to output what is the results of each stage of the pipeline to files.
Needs work to merge it!
|28 Oct 2000
resource URL: handling
||Allows resource: URLs to be used everywhere, e.g. can read from JARs in XSLT.
NOTE: This particular approach was discouraged in an earlier cocoon-dev discussion because of
possible security manager problems.
|29 Oct 2000
Browser capabilities and database
||Extensive changes to user agent recognition and a capabilities map.
|31 Oct 2000
Command line patches
||Support for specifying user agent in the command line and outputting to stdout.
|4 Nov 2000
||Classloader conflicts (XSP)
||Fixes classloader conflicts with XSP and some servlet engines (Resin).
NOTE: patch requires JDK1.2, Cocon 1.x must not require JDK1.2 so patch
must be made reflective.
|8 Nov 2000
||Alternative patch to "pipeline debugger" at top of this queue.
Ideally the best of both solutions should be extracted.
|29 Nov 2000
||fp:write node creation
||fp:write doesn't create new nodes as it should. This patch fixes that.
|9 Jan 2001
||Custom entity resolver
||The Parser interface doesn't currently have a way of specifying an EntityResolver
