Summary: IETF 76 Code Sprint
Release Date: Mon, November 9, 2009 at 9:59 AM UTC
Release Author: Henrik Levkowetz

  • With this release, the datatracker is changed to run under Django 1.1
    rather than under 0.96, and in this sense it is a major release. There
    is however very few changes that can be seen by the users, which is the
    reason why there is no major bump in the release number.

Major changes, from Pasi and the code sprint participants:

  • Imported django/ directory from Django-1.1.1.tar.gz, placed in parallel
    with the top-level ietf/ directory in the tree. This lets us run with
    a version of Django which could possibly be different than the system
    installed version.

  • Automated conversion of the code base to django-1.1 conventions, e.g.
    to use max_length instead of maxlength in model declarations.

  • Lots of escape and safe filters added to the templates, to handle the
    transition from 0.96 to 1.1. This work was contributed by a number of
    people durint the IETF 76 code sprint::

    Pasi Eronen (also leading up to the IETF 76 code sprint)
    Tony Hansen
    Ben Campbell
    Tero Kivinen
    Adam Roach
    Arifumi Matsumoto

  • Code cleanup, including removal of unused and seldomly used code (in
    particular the code for mailing list change requests)

  • A lot more test cases added, in preparation for the transition to 1.1;
    also refinement of the testing framework.

From Lars Eggert:

  • Support the use of UTF-8 in emails

  • Fixed the IPR submission tool to work under Django 1.1
