#2897 closed defect (fixed)

G.A.N.T. Folder name incompatible with Windows filesystem

Reported by: adrian.wilkins@… Owned by: stuartm
Priority: trivial Milestone: 0.21
Component: mythtv Version: head
Severity: low Keywords:
Cc: Ticket locked: no


Although the NTFS filesystem will allow names ending in a dot, Windows doesn't support them and none of the userland tools will create them, including SVN.

Windows instead internally truncates all filenames with dot. G.A.N.T. therefore ends up as G.A.N.T

This confuses SVN as it now thinks that the folder is absent. It also makes the TortoiseSVN status cache very confused :-)

Suggestion : Rename folder to remove finishing dot.

svn mv
svn mv

This will be fixed once the second part of the themeinfo.xml changes is committed. We will then read the user-friendly theme name from there instead of using the folder name. The folder can then become G.A.N.T but the Appearance Settings will still display G.A.N.T.

Renames the G.A.N.T. folder to G.A.N.T (with permission of Oscar) because windows doesn't like filenames ending in a fullstop.

Includes a database update to change the name in the database. Does not change the name of the mytharchive theme, also called G.A.N.T.

This change will only affect the folder name and internal name of the theme. I'll shortly be committing changes so that the "public" name of a theme is read from the themeinfo.xml
